This is a UK pattern. Hook size and tension are not important. (I used hook size 5.0mm).

Stitches used:

Sl st – Slip Stitch

Ch – Chain

Dc – Double Crochet

Stitch explanation.

Decreasing a double crochet stitch (dc dec) – insert hook, yarn over, pull through (2 loops on hook), insert hook into next stitch, yarn   over and pull through (3 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through all 3 loops.

DO NOT join rounds unless stated – use stitch markers to determine beginning of round.

DO NOT fasten off

Chain 12 (for tail)

Slip stitch in 2nd chain from hook and in every chain going to body. Fasten off leaving long tail. Use long tail to close the hole if necessary and weave in the end.

Outer Ears (make 2)

Chain 2

Rnd 1: 6dc in 2nd chain from hook

Rnd 2: 2dc in each dc around [12dc]

DO NOT join this last round but do fasten off leaving a long tail.

Middle Ears (make 2)

With contrast colour, chain 2

5dc in 2nd chain from hook, join to first dc and finish off leaving a long tail.

Assembly:

  • Sew both middle ears to the centre of the outer ears.
  • Sew the ears onto the mouses body ( I attached them at row 5)
  • Cross stitch an ‘X’ at the very tip of mouse for its nose ( I used the same pink as the middle ear colour).
  • French knots for the eyes.

And that’s it! Your mouse is all finished. Hope you liked the pattern and that you enjoy this cute little toy – Lillie certainly does as you can see in the photo below 🙂
