Knitted Mice - Beginners Knitting Pattern

This is Mr & Mrs Peppermint from Willowherb Village, as named by my daughters.

The body and head are knitted all in one. There is no fiddly moments, trying to sew a head onto a body, making sure it is straight! I have tried to make this pattern as simple as possible, as I find sewing heads onto toys quite daunting. I have dressed the mice in Victorian clothes. People have knitted them as church mice, to hide in a church for children to find or Victorian Christmas mice, as part of a display.

Mr. Peppermint is knitted in green and yellow, with a belt, buckle and bow tie.

Mrs. Peppermint is knitted in red and white with a skirt, collar and waistband.
