Meet Freddie, he is a field mouse!

Who said that Field Mice can’t be cute? Freddie is looking for a new home, he would love to come live with you, if you want to knit him!

Freddie is a very quick knit, needing hardly any yarn.

He measures 10cm by 7cm (roughly) and so is a great way to use up left-over DK yarn from your stash.

He is knitted flat and then seamed using mattress stitch.

The only stitches you will need to know are:

  • Knit (k);
  • Purl (p);
  • Knit Front and Back (Kfb);
  • Knit two together (K2tog).

You will need to make an i-chord to make Freddie’s tail, but that is super simple too!

In addition to a small amount of yarn, you will need:

  • a tapestry needle for sewing Freddie up,

  • some toy stuffing and some 6mm safety eyes (or small black buttons, or even just some black yarn to sew him some eyes)

  • a very small amount of pink or black yarn or embroidery thread for Freddie’s nose.

I hope that you enjoy making Freddie, if you find any problems with the pattern, I have tested it but these things happen so please let me know, I’m happy to help!
