Pocket Pet Mouse

Lion Brand® Fun Fur®

GAUGE:

24 scs x 16 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) 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

MOUSE
Chain 21.
Row 1
Sc (single crochet) in 2nd ch from hook, and in each ch across – 20 sc.
Row 2 Ch 1, turn, sc in each st across. Rep last row 12 more times, or until piece is square. End off. Cut yarn, leaving a trailing end of about 4 inches of yarn when cutting the extra yarn.

Need a little help? Use our handy learn-to-crochet instructions for detailed pictures and instructions!

Fold square in half and stitch as shown

Tie the yarn 'tail' onto the trailing end of the yarn. Knot it well.

Turn the fabric and open it -- it will be a cone. Put the stuffing into it. Position stuffing with your finger to make the mouse the shape you'd like.

Fold down the flap at the top of the cone, tucking the ends of the yarn inside the mouse and leaving the tail hanging out. Sew the open edges closed.
To put eyes on the mouse, pull the crochet hook all the way through the mouse's 'head' and use it to pull the black and white yarn through together. Tie it off securely on one end (use several knots). Pull it tight and tie off on the other end (use several knots). Trim closely.

Tie a tuft of fun fur at the end of the mouse's tail.
