     Approximate size –  3” / 7.5cm tall

     

    You will need: 
    4mm knitting needles

    DK yarn
    Coloured felt for the ears and tail
    Tiny buttons or sequins for eyes
    Coloured yarn for the nose and whiskers
    Needle to sew up

    Method:-
    With no 4mm needle cast on 30 stitches
    Row 1: knit all across stitches
    Repeat row 1 for a TOTAL of 27 rows
    Cast off

    To Make up
    Fold in half, and stitch the cast on and the cast off rows together to make a tube.

    Gather one end of the tube, slip the needle through the very top of the garter stitch loops that stand a bit proud and pull tightly.  Over sew a couple of times to secure well and finish off.

    Gather the other end of the tube in the same way and fold this end right up into the tube.  Secure both gatherings together with a couple of stitches through both the thicknesses and finish off.
