I got the idea to make a sturdy mouse, friend of the forest, with clothing. In the process of making him he came to be an adventurer mouse, with a stick, backpack and nuts.
I think anyone who loves nature and animals will love crocheting and having him.
With this mouse, kids will have a sturdy but soft friend with attributes to play with. If you use pipe cleaners the mouse is movable, a real adventurer.
This is a .PDF pattern designed by me, in standard American crochet terms. The pattern is for personal use only, so for yourself or as a gifts etc. I'm not okay with selling dolls made with my patterns.
The crochet pattern contains:
- An intro with useful info.
- List of materials, tools and accessories needed.
- Brand and colour numbers of the needed yarn.
- A clear description of how to crochet and assemble the animal.
- Pictures to help getting everything right.
Gauge is unimportant for this pattern. If the pieces are crocheted tightly enough, they will not gape visibly when stuffed. You can make a little test swap to be sure.
I am a Dutch illustrator and crochet character designer. My crochet animals usually have a woolly and natural look. For each project my goal is to create a playful doll with his own character.
I work as a professional artist, based in the Netherlands.
