Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • decrease
  • pick up stitches
  • seam
  • I-cord or crochet for tail
  • 20 yards/ 18 meters dk or worsted weight yarn

Pattern Description:

This is perfect for leftover bits of yarn from other projects- I used some hand dyed yarn and a teeny tiny ball of leftover Silky Wool to make these.

The mouse is knit flat, then seamed and stuffed. You can knit the mouse in any yarn you like- just make sure your stitches are tight so the stuffing doesn't fall out.

(Tip: if the yarn you want to use seems to thin and like the stuffing might poke through, hold it double- just remember you will need double the yarn- about 40 yards.)

There are two versions included- rounded nose or pointed, plus instructions for making a braided, icord, or crochet tail.


5 stitches and 8 rows per inch in garter stitch [1 inch = 2.54 cm]

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 2.5 inches/ 6.3 cm long by 1 inch/ 2.5 cm wide after stuffing, not including tail


  • US 4/3.5 mm knitting needles (straight, circular, or two double pointed needles is fine) or size to get gauge

You Will Also Need:

  • Tapestry needle
  • Small amount of stuffing (wool, fiberfill, a cotton ball or two, or bits of leftover yarn all work well)
  • Catnip (optional)
  • US #4/3.5 mm crochet hook (optional)

Suggested yarn:

20 yards of DK weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

silky wool
