Wee Mousies in Inside Crochet!

The latest copy of Inside Crochet has just come out (issue 35) and my pattern to make a pair of cute little mice is in it!

These Wee Mousies are only 9cm tall so they're perfect to make for little presents or stocking fillers. They'll fit perfectly in a pocket and it would be sweet to make them a little bed out of a box, and crochet a tiny blanket for them. Their clothes are crocheted as part of their bodies, but you could easily make them little accessories - my prototype has no clothes but he does have a scarf.



If you like to crochet you should check out Inside Crochet, it's always full of gorgeous patterns; clothes that I'm dying to make but will probably never get the time - there's a Ruby Sweater this month that has an amazing texture - and smaller projects that I really want to try. The Milly, Molly, Mandy scarf on the front cover looks delicious and there are some beautful, understated scatter cushions that I fancy giving a go. There are also some great inspirational articles and a 'how to' section that's useful if you're new to crochet.

Thank you!

There are are few patterns for crochet/amigurumi mice out there, but to my mind this is the cutest.

LucyRavenscar said...

Wow, thank you Erin! They are pretty much the same size as real mice - I used to be obsessed with tiny toys when I was a little girl, so I was channeling that feeling when I designed them.

Your work is so gorgeous! I may make a multiplicity of mousies for Christmas this year.

LucyRavenscar said...

Thank you! I hope they'll make great little presents, or decorations even.

It's so cute! It really reminds me of the mouse out of the gruffalo.

LucyRavenscar said...

Thanks - I'd not thought of that but I love The Gruffalo, and the designs of the creatures are so sweet!

How can I get the pattern if I don't get this magazine? These are too adorable!

LucyRavenscar said...

Thanks! I'll be able to sell the pattern myself three months after it was first published, so that will be the end of January.

I think the wee mousies are really cute and would love to make some but I live in the US and don't have access to the magazine and the website doesn't have anything either. Thank you.

LucyRavenscar said...

You can get a digital version of the magazine, if that helps: http://pocketmags.com/viewmagazine.aspx?titleid=1359&title=Inside+Crochet
Otherwise, I will sell the pattern in my Etsy shop from the end of January.
