Notes

Mouse pattern is ‘Mimi the Little Mouse’ by Amalou Designs.

I followed the the pattern for the head, ears, arms and hat - although I added 3 extra rounds of htr (hdc) into 3rd back loop and 1 round of crab stitch to the hat to make it a bit bigger.

Scarf: ch5, 1dc into 2nd ch from hook. 1dc in each of next 3 ch. Turn.

ch1, 1dc in each stitch, turn.

Repeat from * until scarf is 15”

Pumpkin Body: (leave a long end for sewing)
ch 26, 1dc in 2nd ch from hook. 1dc in each of next 24 ch. Turn
ch1, 1dc in back loop of next 25 stitches. Turn.
Repeat from
for a total of 46 rows.
Fold piece in half with shorter ends together, ch1, ss into back loop of stitches in last row and the starting chain. This forms a tube, fasten off yarn, leaving a long end. Thread end onto a darning needle and sew a running stitch around the open end, pull tight and secure. Stuff pumpkin with toy stuffing. Using the other yarn end repeat the running stitch on open side and pull tight to secure.

Tail: I did a chain of 22 and then ss back along the chain.

I added 4 more rounds to the legs to make them longer.
