Special notes:
This pattern will give you a Hat and Scarf that will fit Mouse depending on your choice of yarn and hook size.

st = stitch
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
sl st = slip stitch
f/o = finish off

Supplies used:
3.7mm hook
any color of worsted weight medium #4
yarn needle
Specialty yarn to edge the hat. I used Bernat On The Fringe. I have a picture of it in the Mouse pattern

How to read the rows: Each row has a sequence as given below. For example 1sc then 2sc in next st means repeat that sequence 1sc then 2sc in next st followed by 1sc then 2sc in next st over and over to the end of that particular row. The number inside the parentheses ( ~ ) is the number of stitches you should have at the end of that particular row.

To edge the hat, pull the specialty yarn through any one of the edge stitches on the hat, ch 1 and sc into each st around. f/o and weave yarn tail in.

    As you already know, I love mouses! >°O°<
    They are perfect for Christmas, I hope to have some time to do mouses first!
    But definitively I'll do it!
    I have a question, sorry if I post here, but since I'm new with 'Blogger', if I want to put this page in my 'favorite' or something, in the way in future can I find it easily, there's the possibility on Blogger to add this page in a sort of 'favorite' list in my blogger?

    Thanks in advance if you can reply :)

    1. Hello! I'm glad you like the mice, I have a love for them too, lol

      There used to be a join this site gadget on blogger but it seems to have disappeared, not sure why, for now you can follow by email and that gadget is near top of the page so you will get an email when I add a new post. And check back in a few days to see if the follow gadget has re-appeared :))

  4. Thank you so much for the patterns, they are lovely!

  5. So cute....
    Thanks for sharing the pattern.

  6. Thanks for the cute patterns.

  7. I recently found you when I needed to learn how to do a magic circle. I see that you do start to finish videos and wonder if you would do one for a special project. I would like to participate in a project that I read about in Readers Digest. It is a project called "Knitted Knockers" (but you may crochet the knockers, too). Volunteers are asked to make these for women who have had mastectomies. I understand that they are so much more comfortable than the medical alternative and there is currently a waiting list for these items. I have downloaded the instructions from their website but I just don't understand what to do at Round 5! My 86 y/o mother and I would both like to crochet and donate, but we need instruction. Would you consider making a video to demonstrate start to finish? You may find more at if you'd like to understand more. Thank you so much for considering. I'm sure many would participate in this wonderful program if they only knew how! Blessings to you for considering! I look forward to your response. Linda

  8. Hi Sharon! Thank you for sharing!!! I have found your blog and I think it is amazing, you made so lovely designs! I have tried the mouse with the scarf and will be posted on my blog with the link to your site (of course). It is in spanish because I live in Madrid, but if you want to check it:
    Thanks again and Regards!!!

  9. Hi again, I have problems to join your site with google, I like the Facebook site, but will try later again to join through google.


  10. Hi Sharon - since you never answered about doing the tutorial for the prostheses for mastectomy patients, I'll assume that you are not interested. Merry Christmas anyway.


    1. Hello Linda,
      First of all I have to say since it's Christmas Eve a very Merry Christmas to you and yours and of course Happy Crocheting!!

      Your first message was found in the spam box, unfortunately this happens from time to time. Comments left under anonymous and contain web links will be flagged so if you find other blog authors have not responded then it might be the message was flagged by blogger. I checked the spam box to see where your first comment went after receiving your last comment this morning. There are also rare times that comments get eaten by blogger and that remains a mystery as to why. I have set messages to be be moderated so I can catch them as they come in but nothing works 100% of the time.

      For the request you have left with me.. I only do videos of my own patterns. I would imagine that the Knitter's Knockers website would have some sort of copyright on their patterns. You would have to ask for permission to have a video made using a pattern of theirs. Once you have permission you can let me know. I am not sure if I could make a video anytime soon as my time is spread very thin. Between work and my children I also have many projects and commitments waiting for me. But I know a few people that do video tutorials so if I couldn't do one then I would certainly do my best to find somebody who could.

      Thank you for the message and keep me posted

  11. these little guys are adorable! can't wait to make a bunch of them. thank you for sharing your talent with us! :-)

  12. Hi Sharon,
    was wondering where you purchased the 4.5mm safety eyes? I can't seem to find a store that carries that size.

    1. you'll find the link to the eyes in the blue tab on the right hand side near the top of this page called "You Asked" that is my FAQ page. I'm not sure I can link to that page from the comments but I'll leave it anyway

  13. Sharon,

    Was wondering where you purchased the fringe for the hats?? Can't find anyone in PA that has it. HELP!

  14. Does anyone know where I can purchase Bernat On The Fringe???

  15. I just wanted to thank you for the free patterns. And share That i made your kisding mouse. My first try at Amiguri crochet.

  16. May I please use the above image on my blog to illustrate a Christmas story I wrote for my granddaughter? I'll credit you and link. No problem if not. I just love it and it is perfect.
