    Dear Jenny, your mice are utterly adorable. when I was a little girl, I owned a dolls house with a family of felt mice who lived inside. I spent many happy hours playing with them and have never seen anything like them since. I would love to win your little kit so that I could make a similar set for my young daughter to enjoy in the same way I did.

  10. Hi, thanks for the pattern, the cardigan is so lovely.
    I’m having a bit of trouble though, this might be a stupid question but what are you supposed to do with the stitches that you put on the stitch holder?
    If anybody could help it would be very much appreciated 🙂

    • Hi Hannah, so sorry if my pattern wasn’t clear (it’s the first time I’ve written anything like this!) The stitches on the holder make the second side of the cardi front. Once you finish the first side, you pop the stitches on the holder back on your needle and work as you did the first. Let me know if this goes ok. Jenny

    going to make a whole family of these mice to adorn my upcoming rebuild/redesign of my lounge. I have the perfect spot for them on a shelf in a picture frame! They’re going to be looking soo mousey up there in their retro clothes. Brilliant. (have only just discovered mollie makes and i’m in love!! sigh…my creative juices are flowing once again…it’s been too long!) 😛

  14. Can’t wait to make a little mouse with it’s cardi on. My friend needs a mouse in her house!

    Hello, I wonder if you could help, I am new to sewing and trying to make the small mouse for my nephew. I have got to the body and the instructions say to “stitch along the vertical slit in the body front”. I’m a bit unsure how I am supposed to be stitching along it and would be really grateful for some guidance… like I said I am new to sewing!
    Many thanks


    • Hi Sarah, sorry you’re having trouble with this but I’m sure it can be sorted out. The vertical slit is to shape the body. Treat it like a seam, as if you were joining two pieces of fabric together. Fold the body so you’ve the raw edges of the slit together. Use a small running stitch, hand or machine, to stitch the two pieces together. Make sure you finish each end securely. Open out the body shape do that it’s flat again and you’ll see it has a slightly curved shape to give your mouse a little tummy. I hope this helps, please say if you need anything more.

    I was so delighted to find a copy of your magazine in a Barns&Noble bookstore that I picked it up and couldn’t put it down and I reread them over and over. I even get copies in on my i-pad. Keep up the wonderful work. Little mice are so darling, I have made mice before but that was many years ago. I am 70+ years now And still love the little mice. Making them today.

  20. Is there some way I could send you an email with a picture of my mini cardi? I am having trouble with the pattern. Am an experienced knitter, have knitted the little sweater three times and ended up with the same problems. I know I am doing something wrong. Help! My granddaugher’s other grandma is making a mouse for her and asked me to knit the sweater as she is not a knitter. Oh dear.

  21. Lynette

    Is the front of the cardi meant to be longer than the back? Should it really be 12 rows of stocking stitch after casting off the 12 stitches or 6 rows?
