Boy mouse in a cabled sweater
The pattern contains 50 detailed step-by-step photographs along with full pattern instructions and tips for stuffing, seaming and finishing neatly. It is less of a knitting pattern and more of a 'how to' manual.
The pattern is for knitting flat on two needles and all pieces are seamed afterwards. Please note that this project is not a quick or simple knit. It takes me around 14 hours to make and finish each of the animals that I make and just under half of that time is spent on the finishing. There are lots of separate pieces which require seaming and sewing.
I've included instructions for two different sweater options - the first has cables but for those who don't like cabling there is a simpler version in a simple broken ribbing.
The sample was knit with Debbie Bliss Mia yarn in White with ears from Phildar Phil Coton 3 in Poudre 107. His sweater is made from Scheepjeswol Cotton 8 and his shorts are in BC Garn Allino yarn. Some suggested substitutes are shown below.
