Pattern: How to crochet a No-sew Mouse?


Let’s start – No-sew crochet mouse

 

The body – No-sew crochet mouse

  • The mouse is worked in continuous rounds (as a spiral). Use a stitch marker if needed.
  • Remember to stuff as you crochet.

With a 2.75 mm crochet and grey yarn OR with a 4.5 mm and grey yarn:

    • Round 1: start 6 sc in a magic ring. (6) – NB: if you work with plush yarn: ch2; make 6 sc in the 2nd ch from the hook. (6)
    • Round 2: [6 inc]. (12)
    • Round 3: [1 inc in the next st, 1 sc]x6. (18)
    • Rounds 4-10: [1 sc in all st]. (18)

Place the eyes between Rounds 8 and 9, spaced by 2 st.

  • Round 11: [1 dec, 1 sc]x6. (12)

Fill the body with polyfill.

  • Round 12: [6 dec]. (6)

Cut the yarn, close the body and fasten off.


The ears – No-sew crochet mouse

With a 2.75 mm crochet and grey yarn OR with a 4.5 mm and grey yarn:

Insert your crochet hook under Round 11 on the side of the head (see pictures)

  • Row 1: ch 2. (2)
  • Row 2: starting in the 2nd ch from the hook: 9 sc. (9)

Insert the tail ends of the yarn inside the body with a tapestry needle and fasten off.

Do the same thing for the 2nd ear.


The tail – No-sew crochet mouse

With a 2.75 mm crochet and grey yarn OR with a 4.5 mm and grey yarn:

Insert your crochet hook between Rounds 3 and 4 at the back of the body.

  • Row 1: ch 12. (12)

Insert the tail ends of the yarn inside the body with a tapestry needle and fasten off.

NB: I used my tapestry needle along the tail to bring back the tail end inside the body and to secure it (don’t pull on it or the tail will be twisted).

With a small amount of pink and your tapestry needle, make a little nose between Round 7 and 8, over 1 stitch.
