Sow the head onto the top of the body. Play around with the angle of the head. This is an easy and fun way to give your mouse some character.

EARS (Make 2)

Fasten off and leave a long tail of yarn for sowing.

Position the ears on top of the head and sow down. Play around with the angle of placement to give your mouse more character.

ARMS AND LEGS (make 4)

Rnd : Decrease every 2 sc around (6)

Fold in half and line up the stitches. sc the 2 sides together (2 sc)

Fasten off and chain 8. Leave long tail for sowing which you will loop through a sc st on the body and tie the end down so the chain is flush against the body.

TAIL

Take a long length of yarn and loop it through the mouse’s butt where you want the tail to be. Tie a knot. With the 2 strands of yarn together, chain 8. Fasten off and trim so that there is only a short end.

Now you have a mouse.
