FESTIVE MICE TOY KNITTING PATTERNS
My little mouse family love to celebrate Christmas. With this pattern you can knit Santa Mouse, Mrs Mouse and Baby Mouse.
PLEASE NOTE: The outfits are sewn onto the mice, so are not removable.
THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the three mice and their outfits, photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 7 pages and written in English.
TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat on straight knitting needles, apart from their tails which are i-cord knitted on two DPNs. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, knit i-cord and sew seams. For colour-work, you will need to know how to knit stripes (i.e change colour at the end of a row). The Mrs Mouse pattern also incorporates picking up stitches along a side edge of stockinette.
YARN, NEEDLES AND NOTIONS INCLUDE:
- A pair of straight 3.75mm knitting needles (US 5)
- Two 3.5mm DPNs (US 4)
- DK yarn (double knitting or light worsted weight); less than 50g in each colour
