Amigurumi Santa Mouse Free Pattern

SANTA MOUSE (4.5 INCHES)

Let’s create a Santa Mouse. When creating the Mouse, please take into account your density

of crocheting (it differs for everyone). My density is average. If you use a different yarn, the

size of the toy may slightly change, but it will remain the same cute baby mouse.

ABBREVIATIONS

MR – magic ring

sc – single crochet

dec – decrease (make two stitches together)

inc – increase (make two stitches in the same stitch of the previous round)

dc dec – double crochet decrease

dc inc – double crochet increase

sl st – slip stitch

dc – double crochet

ch – chain stitch

(.) – total number of stitches after the round
