Mousie

A sweet little mouse that’s fun to knit from just a small amount of yarn. Mousie’s knit almost entirely in the round with minimal seaming. The body is worked in one piece, beginning with the charming I-cord tail and ending with the tip of his nose. Then sts are picked up for the simple I-cord limbs and big, alert ears. Mousie is the perfect gift for anyone who needs a mischievous little companion, including yourself.

  • CONSTRUCTION

    Mousie’s knit almost entirely in the round with minimal seaming. The body is worked in one piece, beginning with the charming I-cord tail and ending with the tip of his nose. Then sts are picked up for the simple I-cord limbs and big, alert ears.

    GAUGE

    Exact gauge isn’t important - you can use any yarn with needles a couple of sizes smaller than recommended to give a tight fabric that the stuffing won’t poke through.
