Thank you so much!
I really love your patterns. I made some for my granddaughter and sent them in the mail today. But I don’t understand how to make the mouse’s ears.
Can you tell me where exactly you are having a problem?
I can make the first ear. It cannot understand instruction for second ear. Love the mouse. So cute. Thanks
Can you tell me exactly where you are having a problem with the second ear? To make a second ear you just repeat instructions for the first ear. The pattern is instructed to repeat from * to * for the second ear.
Ok, I will be glad to make a video tutorial.
Karen Rawlins says
I love the crochet mouse but I don’t understand what it means to continue on opposite side of the chain after completing the second ear. Do you have a video to help me? Thanks,
I don’t have a video for this pattern yet. “To continue on opposite side of the chain” – after finishing the second ear, do not turn your work but continue working around inserting your hook into the beginning chain. You will be working on the “opposite” side of the chain. Hope this will help.
