Free crochet patterns and tutorial

I used ww yarn, and an F hook.
Do not join rounds, the mouse is made in one complete spiral.
Use stitch markers or safety pins to mark end of each round
Starting at nose, and working down to tail:
Ch 2
1) 6sc in 2nd chain from hook
2) (2 sc in first sc, sc in next sc) repeat around ( 9 sc)
3) (2 sc in first sc, sc in next 2 sc) repeat around (12 sc)
4) sc in each sc around
5) (2 sc in first sc, sc in next 3 sc) repeat around (16 sc)
It is easiest if you embroider face here
6) sc in each sc around
7) (2 sc in first sc, sc in next 4 sc) repeat around (18 sc)
8) (2 sc in first sc, sc in next 5 sc) repeat around (21 sc)
9) sc in each sc around
10) (2 sc in first sc, sc in next 6 sc) repeat around (24 sc)
11) sc in each sc around.
12) (sc dec, sc in next 4 sc) repeat around ( 20 sc)
13) (sc dec, sc in next 3 sc) repeat around (16 sc)
14) (sc dec, sc in next 2 sc) repeat around (12 sc)
Stuff
15) (sc dec, sc in next sc) repeat around (8 sc)
16) sc dec around (4 sc)
Do not finish off
Chain 12 (this will become the tail)
Slip stitch in 2nd chain from tail, and in remaining chains going up to body.
Finish off leaving long tail.
Use long tail to close hole if necessary, weave in end.
Ear (make 2)
Chain 2
1) 6 sc in 2nd chain from hook
2) 2 sc in each sc around (12 sc)
DO NOT JOIN THIS LAST ROUND
Finish off. (by not joining, it gives you a few slightly flatter stitches, this part gets sewn on to mouse)
Contrast Ear (make 2)
With contrast color,
Chain 2
1) 5 sc in 2nd chain from hook
Join to first sc, and finish off leaving long tail
Sew contrast to ears
Sew ears to mouse.
Placement notes: I cross stitched a small “X” at the very tip of mouse for nose. (in pink)
I sewed on small button doll eyes between rows 2-3 for eyes
I sewed the ears on, using row 5.
Enjoy your mouse!
