Free Knitting Pattern…Meet Freddie the Field Mouse

Freddie the Field Mouse

Meet Freddie, he’s a field mouse, but the cute kind, not the “sneak into your kitchen and eat all your food kind”….oh…he tells me that he is the “sneak into your kitchen and eat all your food kind”, but only after you invite him in courtesy of some knitting needles and some yarn!

Freddie is a very quick knit, needing hardly any yarn.

He measures 10cm by 7cm (roughly) and so is a great way to use up left-over DK yarn from your stash.

He is knitted flat and then seamed using mattress stitch.

The only stitches you will need to know are:

  • Knit (k);
  • Purl (p);
  • Knit Front and Back (Kfb);
  • Knit two together (K2tog).

You will need to make an i-chord to make Freddie’s tail, but that is super simple too!

In addition to a small amount of yarn, you will need:

  • a tapestry needle for sewing Freddie up,
  • some toy stuffing and some 6mm safety eyes (or small black buttons, or even just some black yarn to sew him some eyes)
  • a very small amount of pink or black yarn or embroidery thread for Freddie’s nose.

I hope that you enjoy making Freddie, if you find any problems with the pattern, I have tested it but these things happen so please let me know, I’m happy to help!

        I knitted in school when I was 10. Crochet as well back then. I was good at crochet, but knitting – oh boy. I kept dropping stitches. So I’m holding back on it for now πŸ˜‰

      2. the thing I like about knitting is if I “miss” a stitch, I don’t have to frog the whole row to correct, just knit back to it and make it right. the times I’ve frogged a whole LOAD of crochet rows because I messed up! πŸ˜£πŸ˜‚

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this post...please leave comments below!
