Goodnight Mice Pattern


Goodnight Mice are sleepy little creatures who just want to curl up and forget about the holidays, and the world in general. Sounds nice, right? Tuck them into a mini stocking or sleeping bag (both included in the pattern), or just knit a drowsy mouse then take a nap for yourself!

The little mouse knits up quickly in the round with no seaming. The mini stocking incorporates an afterthought heel (no short rows), and the sleeping bag is a simple flat-knit design.

Techniques include knitting in the round on double-pointed needles, I-cord, picking up stitches, and grafting (for the stocking).

These quiet little creatures make the sweetest ornaments and gifts, garlands, cat toys and more!

NOTE: The finished pieces are very small and are not suitable for small children.
