Loom Knit Mouse

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

18 stitches = about 4 in. (10 cm)
EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL FOR THIS PROJECT.
When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

1. Follow loom manual instructions for SINGLE KNITTING for how to cast on, knit and bind off.
2. Each small piece of Mouse is knit on one semi-circle loom piece. The curved shape of the semi-circle piece does not affect the shape of the finished knit fabric.
3. Loom can be configured into a variety of shapes to suit your preference. If desired, use additional loom pieces to configure loom into any shape, then knit back and forth in rows on just one side of loom.

BODY
Loom Configuration Use the following piece: (1) 28-hole semi-circle piece.

Set Up

Insert 18 small pegs into center 18 holes of 28-hole semi-circle piece - 18 working pegs placed.

With A, cast on to every working peg.
Working back and forth in rows, knit every row until piece measures 7 in. (18 cm) from beginning.
Bind off.

OUTER EAR (make 2)
Loom Configuration
Use the following piece: (1) 28-hole semi-circle piece.

Set Up

Place 8 small pegs into center 8 holes of 28-hole semi-circle piece - 8 working pegs placed.
With A, cast on to every working peg.
Knit 5 rows.
Bind off as follows: cut working yarn, leaving an 8 in. (20.5 cm) yarn tail; thread tail into yarn needle provided with loom. Slide needle through yarn loop on peg from bottom to top of loop. Repeat along loom until all loops are threaded. Gently remove knitting from loom. Pull end of yarn to gather stitches, knot securely.

INNER EAR (make 2)
Loom Configuration
Use the following piece: (1) 28-hole semi-circle piece.

Set Up

Place 4 small pegs into center 4 holes of 28-hole semi-circle piece - 4 working pegs placed.

With B, cast on to every working peg.
Knit 3 rows.
Bind off as for Outer Ear.

FINISHING
Fold Body in half. With A threaded into yarn needle, seam sides and top edge, stuffing as you go.
Sew Inner Ear to Outer Ear. Sew Ears to Body. With dark grey yarn, embroider a straight stitch nose.
Tail
Cut 3 strands of A, each 16 in. (40.5 cm) long. Hold strands of yarn together and fold in half.
Insert crochet hook supplied with loom into the Body at the spot where you'd like the tail to be, then bring the hook back out of the Body. Insert the hook through the fold of the yarn strands, and pull strands through Body, forming a loop. Pull ends of yarn through this loop. Pull to tighten. Divide strands into 3 groups of 2 strands each and braid. Knot and trim ends.

For whiskers, cut 2 strands of dark grey yarn, each 3 in. (7.5 cm) long. Center strands below nose and sew to Body with 1 or 2 straight stitches. Knot ends of whiskers.

Thread yarn ends into yarn needle and weave in ends.
