Catnip Stuffed Mouse Knitting Pattern

Wendy Johnson

Gauge:
Not vital

Materials:
Size 7 US (4.5 mm) needles
Worsted weight yarn

Instructions
CO 20 to 24 sts depending upon how large you want your mouse to be.
Work 4 rows St st.
On the next and then every other row, dec one st at each end.
Cont until 4 sts rem. BO.

Finishing
Fold mouse in half with the WS outside by matching the long sides. Sew the seam from nose to tail. Turn inside out. Stuff with catnip and sew the back seam from top to bottom. Securely fasten the seam at the bottom of the mouse and leave a yarn tail. Attach a few strands of yarn and make a braided tail.

When stuffing the mouse with catnip, I put the catnip in a cut off toe from old pantyhose. Tie a knot and make a little bag. Then stuff the bag in the mouse body.
