Amigurumi Mouse Crochet Pattern

The Mouse, the alleged terror of all elephants, continues to drive its terror regime to this day. This horror of all cheese boards is not only just a few centimeters long, but also has large round ears and is usually quite fluffy. All this makes the fear of mice all the more understandable.

If you are daring enough, you can crochet this fright yourself in the form of this little mouse. This mouse will even leave your cheese alone.

The crochet Mouse is almost exclusively crocheted with single crochet stitches in spiral rounds with increases and decreases and is therefore perfect for beginners.

The shown Mouse has been crocheted with the “Schachenmayr Catania” yarn with a 2.5 mm crochet hook and has sitting a height of 6 cm.

Arms: Sew the arms left and right onto the body, 1 stitch row under the “neck”. Do not sew the arms directly over the legs but slightly behind the legs.

Eyes: Attach the safety eyes after the 7th stitch row counting from the top center of the head. The eyes are 4 stitches apart from each other.

Nose: Sew the nose to the head centered below the eyes.

Tail: Sew the tail to the back of the body centered over the stitch edge.

Ears: Sew the ears onto the top of the head with a distance of 1 to 2 stitches at the narrowest point to each other.
