My Teeny Animals are a super project to use up odds and ends in your yarn stash. Make them for keychains, brooches, pendants, or even wear them as rings. This pattern includes six animals: a mouse, turtle, hedgehog, robin, bee and ladybug. The teeny toys are approximately 3 cm long. Most pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight single-pointed knitting needles. The mouse tail is i-cord worked on two DPNs. You will also need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, knit stripes and sew seams.
