Amigurumi Mouse

IMG_6341

Since my blog is called Pink Mouse Boutique, I had to create a mouse pattern. And this one is super adorable and very easy and quick to make. You can use any color thread or yarn. These mice are perfect to teach the children in your life about numbers, colors, sorting, counting, etc. The fun is endless! And I am so addicted to them!

  1. Aunt Lydia’s size 10 thread (color of your choice) + black for the eyes
  2. Clover Amour, 1.5 mm crochet hook
  3. Scissors
  4. Sewing needle
  5. Polyester stuffing

Abbreviations:

mr – magic ring

sc – single crochet

dec – decrease

inc – increase

sl st – slip stitch

ch – chain

Notes:

  1. When forming the magic ring, leave a long tail. We willย  need it later to braid the tail of the mouse.
  2. Do not join rounds.

Pattern:

Round 1: mr, ch 1, sc 8 – 8 sts

Round 2: 8 inc – 16 sts

Round 3: (sc, inc) x 8 – 24 sts

Round 4: (2 sc, inc) x 8 – 32 sts

Round 5: (3 sc, inc) x 8 – 40 sts

Rounds 6 – 10: 40 sc

Round 11: (3 sc, dec) x 8 – 32 sts

Round 12: 32 sc

Round 13: (2 sc, dec) x 8 – 24 sts

Rounds 14 – 15: 24 sc

Sew the eyes on round 15, 5 sts apart from each other.

Round 16:ย (4 sc, dec) x 4 – 20 sts

Round 17: 20 sc

Stuff the body well.

Round 18: (3 sc, dec) x 4 – 16 sts

Round 19: (2 sc, dec) x 4 – 12 sts

Stuff more if needed before finishing Round 20.

Round 20: 6 dec – 6 sts

Fasten off. Leave a long tail. Bring it all the way through the body of the mouse and through the magic ring.

Ears (x 2):

Leave long tails. After you sew the ears in place, you will bring the tails through the magic ring.

Round 1: mr, ch 1, sc 8; sl st to join and ch 2 – 8 sts

Round 2: 8 hdc inc; sl st to join and ch 1 – 16 sts

Round 3: 16 sc; sl st to join

Pull the mr tight and sew in place (about 3 rounds above the eyes).

Tail:

You should have 6 pieces of long thread coming out of the magic ring. Braid those until you reach a desired length for the tail. Make a knot and cut the excess thread.

  1. “Sew the eyes on round 15, 5 sts apart from each other.”

    Use black thread (or another color if you wish). I sewed a few times in each stitch because I like the eyes to be bigger.

    I am really not sure what else to add to this. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I’m relatively new to crocheting so I am confused about the meaning of “increase”. I would love to make these mice, but without the meaning, I can’t. Please help!!

    1. “inc – increase” means that you will single crochet twice in the same stitch. If you are really new, I would suggest looking up tutorials on YouTube for “crochet in the round,” “increase,” “invisible decrease,” etc. Without knowing the basic techniques in crochet, you will not be able to make an amigurumi.

      Oh, and the this little mouse pattern is a good place to start as it is fairly simple and quick to make, so you can practice those basic crochet techniques. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Let me know how it goes and if you have any more questions. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I’m visiting family in Silkeborg, Denmark. There is a group of crocheters who make mice for children in medical crisis for comfort, to hold in their small hands. Your mouse is a great design with no loose ends that can be a problem. Before leaving here while visiting family I hope to make a few.Thanks

  4. Hi, english is not my mother language and i’m technically new to crochet. I got confused at the ears, what does the first round means? It’s a magic ring, and than it says chain (Round 1: mr, ch 1, sc 8; sl st to join and ch 2 โ€“ 8 sts), also what does “hdc inc” means? I look up to the Abbreviations and didn’t found. My brother keeps asking me to make him a mouse, thanks i found your pattern haha it is a really cute mouse!!!
    Just another question: i made the mouse qith a “normal yarn” (not the proper one for amigurumi) and the mouse got really big, it fills my hole hand and i think i did everything right. It’s beacaus of the yarn i used?
    Thank you so much for the pattern!! I’m trying to get used to english terms for crochet.

    1. Hi Rebeca! That just means that you need to 8 sc in the magic ring. The “hdc inc” means to increase using the half double crochet stitch.
      And yes, your mouse is bigger because you used yarn. I prefer thread but I have made the mouse with yarn and it is still super cute.
      I hope this is helpful. Let me know if you have any more questions.

  5. I too used yarn so that will be why my mouse is so much bigger. Will have to try and find some thread and make the smaller ones. So pleased with my first attempt though, especially as I am new to crochet.
