These cheeky dinky little mice have been busy playing hide and seek today, and for a treat are having some cheese for tea! You can make your own dinky mice with this knitting pattern.
The little mouse is small enough to pop in your pocket, a perfect size for little kids, and a super mascot for big kids! You could make your mice as toys, add to keyrings, or even hang from your Christmas tree.
If you want to make your own little mouse, this is a great stash-busting knitting pattern, and is quick to knit.
The mouse uses only about 10g of grey, and about 5g of light brown wool. The mouse is knitted flat on straight 4mm knitting needles, apart from the i-cord arms, legs and tail for which you need two double pointed needles. The eyes are small black beads, but you could use toy safety eyes, or some wool to embroider the eyes if you prefer.
To make your mouse you will need to know how to knit, purl, cast on and off, and make increases and decreases (the pattern includes a guide to abbreviations), knit i-cord and sewing seams. The pattern also includes step by step construction details, and written so it is easier for beginners to follow.
