Free Pattern – Knit Felted Catnip Mice

Filed under: Downloads - Original Knitting Patterns,Knitting — folkcat at 6:58 pm on Wednesday, January 31, 2007

You know, sometimes the only answer to doing something is just do it. Mere minutes ago, I posted that “someday” I’ll get the catnip mice pattern up for people to use.

Then I looked over my documents for it, and you know what? The text is complete, it’s just not in the form of a prettified PDF yet. So I decided, what the heck? I’ll put the text up anyhow, and people at least can start using the pattern!

It’s been over a year since I wrote about them, so here’s a photo of a finished one for you:

Knit Felted Catnip Mouse

The pattern is in the form of ASCII Text, so you should be able to load it in any word processing software you might own. It will also simply display in your browser window. I consider this a Beta version, so if you knit a mouse and find errors in my instructions, please let me know!

You can find the pattern two ways: go to the Free Patterns link on my menu bar at the top of this blog, which will take you to the front page for all my patterns; or click here to go directly to the mouse pattern.

So there you go – the mouse pattern is finally available, at least in a raw version. And all because someone wrote and asked me about it! Which just goes to show, it never hurts to ask.

I’m already halfway through mousie #2 for the evening. After I wet felt them, I’m going to give them needle felted eyes for realistic stalk-ability.

Yes, Miss Kaylee is still in the house. 🙂

One of the cutest mice patterns I’ve seen, and I’ve looked for alot of them! Cats seem to adore handmade toys far more than store purchases. Mine don’t even care about catnip, so I put in the medium jingle bells with some padding and they play and carry their “babies” everywhere! Thank you for sharing!
