The first photo shows the new version of the pattern available in individually and in the pattern collection Fuzzy Knits.

Materials for Mouse: 40 g of worsted weight yarn in main colour (MC), 15 g of worsted weight yarn in contrasting colour (CC), pair of 4 mm (US size 6) knitting needles, two 4 mm (Us size 6) double pointed needles (dpns, optional), two 10.5 mm black buttons or safety eyes, stuffing, yarn for embroidering face, tapestry needle

There’s been a lot of interest in versions of this pattern made by other knitters. If you’re looking for more clothing options, please try these clothing sets: one, two, three, or bedtime clothing. Any of these outfits will fit the mouse, with some small adjustments for length, because the mouse is a bit shorter than my other small toys.

The last photo shows the original version of the pattern. In the new version, the face and ears have been completely redesigned. The raglan pull-over has been changed only to fit better.

ERRATA: In the Fuzzy Knits version of the pattern, for the Body, there is a stitch missing from Row 6. It should read:
Row 6: k8, m1, k15, m1, k8. (33 sts)
