free mouse amigurumi crochet pattern
I know a lot of you love scraptacular patterns! (I made up that word. It’s supposed to sound like “spectacular” LOL). Since a lot of you love having scrap patterns, I knew I had to make a mouse eventually. So here’s a free mouse amigurumi crochet pattern! I hope it looks good! I’m really happy with how it came out. And if you didn’t notice, there’s no sewing needed! Everything is all made in one piece. I’ve been trying to make an effort to ditch sewing anytime possible. I know a lot of you dislike sewing!
This pattern has a lot of cute uses. For one, you can make a cat toy out of it. Just add in cat nip instead of stuffing! If you do this, definitely don’t add safety eyes in case your cat tries to eat the plastic eyes. With a lot of my scraptacular patterns, they make for awesome key chains! You could even set these mice around your town and let random people find it. 🙂 Or if you just need to get rid of some yarn that’s been sitting around for years (I’ve got some yarn guilty of this), just make some mice with this pattern!
If you guys have any ideas for future scraptacular patterns, please let me know. This year I’ve been making a big effort to make amigurumis you specifically requested! So trust me, all opinions are heard 🙂 . Maybe something for Spring would be a good idea… Scraptacular bees? Who knows, I’ll figure it out LOL! Enough of my babbling, I hope you enjoy this pattern. If you ever have any questions with this pattern, please just leave a comment or contact me! I’m always here to help 🥰 .

This mouse is made all in one piece, no sewing required! After making 1 mouse you will easily understand how it’s made, making future mice super quick to make!
The only mildly difficult part of this pattern is understanding how to crochet behind the ears after we make them. If you are used to working in front and back loops, this should be no issue for you! If you are new to this, I provide many photos and explanations to help.

Start in Main Color
Round 1: 6 Sc into a Magic Ring (6)
Round 2: *Sc* all around (6)
Now we will add eye stitch markers in Round 2. These will marks where to place the eyes later. Add a different colored stitch marker in the 3rd and 5th stitch in Round 2.
The eye markers will look like the photo below:
Round 3: *Inc* all around (12)
In the next round we will crochet the ears on. We do this by working in the front loop only when forming the ear
Round 4: Sc 5 (Pic 1). In the FLO SlSt in the next st (Pic 2), Make 4 Dc in that same st (Pic 3), SlSt in that same st. In BOTH loops, Sc in the next 3 st (Pic 4).
In the FLO SlSt in the next st, Make 4 Dc in that same st, SlSt in that same st (Pic 5). SlSt in the next 2 st
(Stitch Count: 22 counting ALL stitches, or 12 stitches only counting the back loop left behind the ear, excluding the actual ear stitches.)
In the next round we will crochet behind the ear.
Round 5: *Inc, Sc* 2 times (Pic 1). Inc in the next st. Bend the ear towards you, this will expose the back loop stitch left from round 4 (Pic 2). Make 1 Sc into that back loop stitch (Pic 3-4).
Now skip the 6 ear stitches (Pic 5). Inc in the next st (Pic 6-7). Sc in the next st, Inc in the next st. Bend the second ear towards you and Sc in the st behind the ear (Pic 9-10).
Skip the 6 ear stitches and Inc in the next st of the mouse. Sc in the last st (Pic 11-12). (18)
Add safety eyes in the marked areas now
Now that we have made the ears, single crocheting around will be as usual!
Round 6-9: *Sc* all around (18)
Round 10: *Dec, Sc* all around (12)
Stuff here. Continue adding stuffing after the next round.
Round 11: *Dec* 5 times. Ch 10 (Pic 2), SlSt in the 2nd Ch from the hook. SlSt in the next 8 ch (Pic 3). Working back on the mouse, *Dec* 1 time (Pic 4-5). (15)
Finish off, leaving a long tail of yarn for sewing. Sew the remaining stitches closed.
Done! If you made a mouse I would LOVE to see it! You can post a picture in the comments, or you can “try” it on Pinterest.
