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

sl st – slip stitch

st(s) – stitch(es)

ch – chain

sc – single crochet

hdc – half double crochet

dec – decrease

inc – increase

Notes:

  1. Leave long beginning and end tails. We will need them later to braid the tail of the mouse.
  2. Do not join rounds.
