Crochet the sweet AMIGURUMI MOUSE with soft chenille

The difficulty in its realization is medium for two reasons:

  1. you have to know the basics amigurumi technique.
  2. you must have experience in crochet to work with this super fine chenille.
  • 🧶Amigurumi Chenille ICE YARNS 100% polyester Super fine (1) (50 gr/ 250 m)
  • 🧶Cotton yarn Super fine (1) (50 gr /200 m)
  • Crochet hook US 0-3
  • tapestry needle
  • stitch marker
  • stuffing
used yarn to make the amigurumi mouse

👎 Negative note: I choose chenille yarn in Super fine thickness (1). If you stretch it too much it breaks easily and you have difficulty in seeing the stitches.

👉 I suggest to start crochet a chain ring in this way there is no risk of breaking the thread.

👍Positive note: make the amigurumi with this yarn give you a very soft result and for this reason, it deserves a bit of effort!

With 1 yarn of Amigurumi Chenille (50 gr), I maked 2 mice and I still have some thread left over.

It has a wide color’s variety and the similarity of the animal’s fur colors makes them perfect, just look at my mouse doesn’t it seem real?!

To do the details, such as the mustache, eyes and teeth, I used black and white cotton thread.

To make hands, feet and internal ears, as well as the nose, I opted for cotton yarn; I liked the contrast between the two yarns!

It has a height of about 12 cm, if made with the indicated yarn.

Cut the yarn and leave a long tail to sew the head on the body.

📌 do not close completely the hole, why you have to hide the yarn when you finish to sew the ears. Close the hole after assembly of each parts.

To make the nose use pink cotton yarn and with some thread pass over the tip of the head, or you can work a circle of 6 SC circle to apply.

To make the mustaches sew two lines with black yarn on the side of the nose (foto 1-2).
