A tiny mouse who can sit in the palm of your hand, or on your desk, or in a Christmas stocking or carry a little sign with a message for someone special. The pattern only uses 30 yards of sock yarn, which makes it a great stash buster. For an INTERMEDIATE knitter because although this is a quick knit, the Mouse pattern uses interesting techniques such as short row shaping in stockinette stitch (explained in the pattern) and pick ups through the middle of the fabric. The Mouse is mostly knitted flat on straight needles. The arms are knitted in the round on double pointed needles. Some sewing is required.

I'm an expat Brit living in the San Francisco Bay Area and a stay at home Mum. I'm also an avid knitter with many ideas for interesting designs using unusual construction and techniques. My Mum taught me to knit when I was 7 years old, I thought I'd forgotten it but when I came back to knitting 7 years ago I discovered that it was all still there. I love to knit in 3D and around corners, so I use knitting in the round and short row shaping in many of my designs. I'd also prefer not to sew lots of pieces together, so my knitted toy designs have as little sewing as I can manage.
