Rattie House, Take 2 - free crochet pattern



Morning beautiful people,

Today I have another pattern for another little rattie house! The last one was a big hit with my gals, however they chewed through the door so I decided it was time to make a new one. Ahh the joys of being a rat owner, they like to chomp on whatever d├ęcor you find for them hehehe!
Im really having fun DIYing my cage out. We have all sorts of hammocks, liners, shelves and play things now!



So today's rattie bed is kind of like two dome-ish shapes with a door in the middle. Its designed to be hung from each end.

If you need instructions on making fabric yarn, have a look HERE

You will need:
Fabric yarn
10mm hook

1: ch2, sc into the 1st chain 6 times, do not join, chain 7, sl st back into the 1st chain, place marker. We've just created a loop for the bed to hang with.
2: *sc in the first stitch, 2sc in the next stitch* repeat twice, pull the loop forward and skip all the chains and the sl st, start the next round in the 1st sc from this round.
3: sc in each stitch around (9)
4: *sc in the first 2 stitches, 2sc in the next stitch* repeat around
5: 2sc in each stitch around
6: sc in each stitch around
7-8: repeat round 6
9: sc in the first 13 stitches
10: ch1, turn, sc  in the next 20 stitches
11-14: repeat round 10
15: sc in the first 20 stitches, when you get to the opening chain 4, jump across the opening and sc to the 1st sc from this round, place marker.
16-18: sc in each stitch (and chain for 16) around
19: sc2tg around
20: *sc in the first 2 stitches, sc2tg* repeat around
21: sc in each stitch around
22: sc, sc2tg, repeat twice,
23: sc 2, chain 7, sc2tg twice

End off, using the tail of the fabric close the opening and sew tight. Your rattie bed is now ready to be hung.
