Little Mouse with Big Eyes

 
I started this project as something else and somehow I ended up with a mouse. It was created a year ago and is one of my first designs.. The mouse is about 14 cm in sitting position. (5 and a half inches). I wanted him to look scared maybe, so I put him big eyes. You could place safety eyes and it would look totally different! You will notice the head increases are not regular. And where you increase - it's the face. 
I used cotton yarn for this toy and 3 mm hook. Prepare your needle, stuffing, scissors and lets begin.

Head
  1. 6sc in magic ring (6)
  2. [inc] rep (12) 
  3.  3 sc, 6 inc, 3sc (18)
  4. sc (18)
  5. 6 sc, 6 inc, 6 sc (24)
  6. sc (24)
  7. 9 sc, 6 inc, 9 sc (30)
  8. sc (30)
  9. [inc, 4 sc] rep (36)
  10. sc
  11. sc
  12. [dec, 4 sc] rep (30)
  13. [dec, 3 sc] rep (24), stuff the head
  14. [dec, 4 sc], rep (20)
  15. [dec, 3 sc] rep (16)
  16. [dec, 2 sc] rep (12), add some more stuffing
  17. [dec, sc] rep (8)
Cut yarn and close the gap with a needle

Body - it is worked from bottom to top.
  1. 6sc in magic ring (6)
  2. [inc] rep (12) 
  3. [inc, sc], rep (18)
  4. [inc, 2 sc] rep (24)
  5. [inc, 3 sc] rep (30)
  6. sc (30) for 8 rows
  7. sc
  8. sc
  9. sc
  10. sc
  11. sc
  12. sc
  13. sc      
  14. [dec, 3 sc] (24)
  15. sc (24)
  16. sc (24)
  17. [dec, 4 sc] (20)
  18. [dec, 3 sc] (16), stuff the body
  19. [dec, 2 sc] (12)
  20. sc
  21. sc
Stuff some more, do not close the gap, cut yarn, leave a tail and sew the body to the head. Insert the needle in every stitch (they are 12) and sew the head.

If you want you could make the arms shorter, just reduce the number of rows. Pin them and decide :). Do not stuff them.

Arm - make two
  1. 9 sc in magic ring (9)
  2. sc (9)
  3. [dec, sc] rep (6)
  4. - 13. sc (6) for 10 rows
Leg - make two
  1. 6 sc in magic ring (6)
  2. [inc] rep (12) 
  3. sc (12)
  4. [dec, sc] rep(8)
  5.  - 13. sc (8) for 9 rows
Tail - with main colour or pink

     21 chain, 20 sc, starting from the second st from the hook, turn, 20 sl st from the other side. 
You are making a round and a half that way. So leave a tail for sewing. And hide the beginning tail inside the tail. You can always reduce/increase the lenght of the tail. Another way to crochet a tail is to 6sc in magic ring and sc in each until you reach the desired length.

Eye - inner circle - dark colour, black
  1.  6 sc in magic ring (6)
Slip stitch and cut yarn, leaving a tail for sewing to the outer circle


Eye - outer circle - white colour
  1.  6 sc in magic ring (6)
  2. [inc] rep (12)
Slip stitch and cut yarn, leaving a tail for sewing. First sew the inner to the outer circle, than sew the eye to the head. 


Nose - see picture of this cool knot or use a safety nose, or sew one.



Ear - make two
  1. 6sc in magic ring (6)
  2. [inc] rep (12) 
  3. [inc, sc] rep (18)
  4. [inc, 2 sc] rep (24)
  5. sc (24)
  6. [dec, 4 sc] rep 20)
  7. [dec 3 sc] rep (16)
  8. sc (16)
  9. [dec, 2 sc] rep (20)
Cut yarn and leave a tail for sewing to the head. But before sewing make the inner circles of the ears and sew them first.

Ear - inner circle - make two - pink colour
  1. 6sc in magic ring (6)
  2. [inc] rep (12) 
Slip stitch and cut yarn, leaving a small tail. Sew them to the ears.
Add whiskers with dark yarn and a needle.


Bow
    chain 3, 2 dc in the first chain, chain 2, sl st in the first chain,
    chain 2, 2 dc in the first chain, chain 2, sl st in the first chain,
    leave a tail and make a knot around the first chain to shape the bow,
    Add chain 11 to the bow, sew it below the bow and then sew the bow on the mouse.
