This mouse is made all in one piece, no sewing required! After making 1 mouse you will easily understand how it’s made, making future mice super quick to make!
The only mildly difficult part of this pattern is understanding how to crochet behind the ears after we make them. If you are used to working in front and back loops, this should be no issue for you! If you are new to this, I provide many photos and explanations to help.
Start in Main Color
Round 1: 6 Sc into a Magic Ring (6)
Round 2: *Sc* all around (6)
Now we will add eye stitch markers in Round 2. These will marks where to place the eyes later. Add a different colored stitch marker in the 3rd and 5th stitch in Round 2.
The eye markers will look like the photo below:
Round 3: *Inc* all around (12)
In the next round we will crochet the ears on. We do this by working in the front loop only when forming the ear
Round 4: Sc 5. In the FLO SlSt in the next st , Make 4 Dc in that same st , SlSt in that same st. In BOTH loops, Sc in the next 3 st
In the FLO SlSt in the next st, Make 4 Dc in that same st, SlSt in that same st SlSt in the next 2 st
(Stitch Count: 22 counting ALL stitches, or 12 stitches only counting the back loop left behind the ear, excluding the actual ear stitches.)
In the next round we will crochet behind the ear.
Round 5: *Inc, Sc* 2 times Inc in the next st. Bend the ear towards you, this will expose the back loop stitch left from round 4 Make 1 Sc into that back loop stitch
Now skip the 6 ear stitches Inc in the next st Sc in the next st, Inc in the next st. Bend the second ear towards you and Sc in the st behind the ear
Skip the 6 ear stitches and Inc in the next st of the mouse. Sc in the last st (18)
Add safety eyes in the marked areas now
Now that we have made the ears, single crocheting around will be as usual!
Round 6-9: *Sc* all around (18)
Round 10: *Dec, Sc* all around (12)
Stuff here. Continue adding stuffing after the next round.
Round 11: *Dec* 5 times. Ch 10 , SlSt in the 2nd Ch from the hook. SlSt in the next 8 ch Working back on the mouse, *Dec* 1 time (15)
Finish off, leaving a long tail of yarn for sewing. Sew the remaining stitches closed.
