NOTE: EU purchasers MUST purchase my patterns here: The holidays are such festive occasions! Fond memories of Christmas or Hanukkah are conjured up for many of us. I've always loved hearing stories of a Christmas mouse, so I thought I would design a knitted one. Then one became two and then I thought why not Hanukkah mice, as well?! And these adorable Christmas and Hanukkah Mice were born! My Christmas Mice hold a candy cane and jingle bell. My Hanukkah Mice hold a menorah candle and a bag of gelt. All four are dressed in their lovely holiday outfits. Standing approx. 9" tall (without those ears), the mice are knit with regular #4 worsted wt. yarn (approx. 145 yds. ea.) with a small amount of short eyelash furry yarn for their fuzzy hair! Their outfits are also made using worsted wt. yarn (approx. 65 yds. for the dress, approx, 60-80 yds. for the shirt and yarmulke or Santa hat. They would look lovely in your home during the holidays or as a special holiday gift for a child! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit, Purl, Increase, Decrease, Cast-on, Bind-off, I-cord GAUGE Gauge is not critical for this project. Work tightly enough to ensure that the stuffing will not show through the stitches. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Mice approx. 9" tall (without ears). PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Lion Brand Vanna's Choice
