WHAT ARE WE MAKING
Hello and welcome! I'm Kristi Tullus, the face behind a little amigurumi blog. I'm so excited to host the first ever Furls Amigurumi CAL, where we will be making this Christmas mouse.
This pattern is not too complicated and only uses the most basic stitches – chain, slip, single and double crochet stitch. If you haven't made toys before, some of the techniques may be new to you, but don't worry, I have little video tutorials of all the amigurumi specific techniques used and it's a great opportunity to learn all the basics of crocheting toys.
The pattern will be released in two parts, with the first part published on December 15th and the second part on December 22nd, just in time for Christmas.
If you have any questions, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I am always happy to help. And if you haven't already, join us at our exclusive Facebook group, Fun with Furls.
WHAT DO WE NEED
Yarn. I used DROPS Nepal, a worsted weight alpaca and wool blend. You will need about 165 yards (150 m) or two skeins in 0500 light gray, 165 yards (150 m) or two skeins in 3620 red and 22 yards (20 m) or 1/4 skein in 1101 white.
But of course you can use any yarn you like, just keep in mind if you decide to go with something other than worsted weight, you will also need to adjust the size of your crochet hook and safety eyes.
Polyester fiberfill for stuffing
1/2" (12 mm) safety eyes
Dark brown and white cotton embroidery floss
Stitch marker (optional)
Go ahead and gather your materials and tools and make sure to come back next Thursday, December 15th, for part one of the pattern, where we will be making the head, muzzle, ear, arms, legs and body.
