Knit Your Own: Forest Friends

Mini Mouse Head Knitting Kit

Meet Squeak the Mouse! The smallest member of the Sincerely Louise faux taxidermy family. This woodland creature is an easy knit, as there's no colour changing at all. Fishing line is used to create the mouse’s cute little whiskers, and instructions on how to do this are included in the pattern. Everything you need to knit your own mini mouse head is included in the kit - even the fishing line and stuffing!
