    • Round 3: [1 inc in the next st, 1 sc]x6. (18)
    • Rounds 4-6: [1 sc in all st]. (18)

    • Rows 7-9: ch 1, turn: 1 sc in the next 13 st]. (13)

We will now sew the hood to the body. Place the hood on the mouse, leaving the same number of stitches around the eyes. The hood will be attached to 13 stitches of round 7 (in the front loop only).  Once you have positioned the hood, sew it to the body with your tapestry needle.

With a 2.75 mm crochet and the yarn in the mouse color OR with a 4.5 mm and yarn in the mouse color :
