Jazz up your fridge with these super-cute crochet magnets. A mouse, a rabbit and a fox make up the set. They’re an easy afternoon project; just perfect for using up small quanitites of yarn. They make beautiful little gifts, too. Who could resist that jaunty neckwear?

This is an 11-page PDF pattern, with loads of step-by-step photos.

  • The pattern is written in UK crochet terms, but is US-friendly. There is only one stitch used throughout (UK dc / US sc).
  • All three animals use the same basic pattern. The PDF pattern includes comprehensive instructions to make the mouse magnet and, where necessary, the adjustments required for the rabbit and the fox (for example, the ears).

You will need

  • 3mm (US C/2 or D/3) crochet hook

  • 4-ply cotton (like Scheepjes Catona) and 2-ply cotton (like Scheepjes Maxi Sweet Treat)

  • A pair of 4.5mm safety eyes, per animal

  • A strong round magnet, about 3cm (1in) in diameter, per animal

  • Stitch markers

  • Tapestry needle and scissors

  • Polyester stuffing

Level of difficulty
