The cat and mice are easy to make: only use single crochet stitches (US) or double crochet stitches (UK). They are made from No 4 yarn (Worsted, Afghan, Aran) and a 4.5 mm hook (US 7, UK 7). The ears and tail of the Mouse are made from DMC Pearl Cotton Thread Size 3 (115/3) and 3.25 mm hook (US 3/D, UK 10). The pattern instructions include the Cat and Mouse.
You can make them bigger or smaller than the dolls in the photo, without changing the patterns. The Cat is about 7.5 inches/ 18.5 cm high standing (excluding ears). The Mouse is 2.5 inches/ 6.5 cm long (excluding tail). The size of the dolls depend on the size of the crochet hook, thickness of yarn and how you stuff them; a bigger hook and thicker yarn make a bigger doll, a doll stuffed tightly is bigger than a loosely stuffed doll.
- The dolls are not suitable for children under 3 years because of loose parts (the eyes).
- Kindle patterns cannot be printed. You read them on your Kindle, tablet or laptop.
