First of all, Happy New Year to everyone!! I hope you will have a wonderful and blessed 2018!
I thought I would start the year off with Minnie Mouse Crochet-A-Long!
I was asked to make a Minnie Mouse for a ladies’ granddaughter. I had a look at what’s on Pinterest and Google. I only found 2 that has been crocheted and I wasn’t very happy with those, so I decided to make one from the picture below.
I understand why the other two Minnie Mouse’s are so simple, it’s easier set than done to crochet one that looks like Minnie Mouse.There are so many little pieces of detail on Minnie. It took me a while to figure out how to make it, but I did it! I left the face till last, I just couldn’t figure out how to make it! I stared and stared at it until I thought I got it and when I tried my idea it didn’t work, so I stared at it some more and then decided to make it like it’s now, I’m still not 100 percent happy with the face but it’s the best I could do.
I’m making this pattern a crochet-a-long since there’s SOOOOO many pieces to make, it just looks a lot more manageable if we take it day by day.
Minnie turned out quite big,I wasn’t planning on her being that big, but it’s perfect for a toddler, Minnie can be her new best friend.
Minnie Mouse measures 70cm from the top of her ears to her feet. If you would like to make Minnie Mouse a bit smaller you are welcome to use 4ply wool with a 3mm crochet hook instead of using double knit wool and a 3.5mm crochet hook.
I’m going to alternate a bigger body piece with a smaller body piece to make it more manageable.
Make sure to get your supplies so long.
You will need-
3.5mm crochet hook
200g of black double knit wool
150g of light pink double knit wool
100g of white double knit wool
50g of dark pink double knit wool
50g of cream double knit wool
Lots of stuffing
A piece of white, light pink and black felt
I will be posting the first pattern on the 3rd of January 2018! After that I will be posting a piece every second day, I hope you enjoy!
I’m so excited to start this Crochet-A-Long with you!
