This tiny little mouse can be knitted as a teeny toy, or you could use it as a pendant or a bag charm. If you don’t have any toy filling in your stash, you could even use a few cotton wool balls to stuff your little mouse.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, increase and decrease, and sew seams. I have knitted my mouse on straight needles but you could convert to knitting in the round if you wish.

FINISHED SIZE: The mouse is approximately 4cm long (not including the tail).
