Mousey the Mouse

I found this cute little pattern on Ravelry for free and thought it would be a great toy for the kid's Easter baskets. Unfortunately, my little man saw me working on it and the cat was out of the bag... sorry little mouse. I don't really mind because he loves Mousey.

I changed the pattern slightly, creating i-cords for the arms and legs using 5 stitches. I wish I had made it with a couple more stitches.  The bow tie was made using the following:

Cast on about 15 stitches
Knit 2 rows
Cast off

Cast on about 8 stitches
Knit 8 rows
Cast off
Wrap extra yarn around the middle to create the bow and attach to first section.

I am a slow knitter and I created this guy in about one hour start to finish. I need more practice seaming pieces together but all in all it turned out great. I think Baby Girl will be getting a white one in near future.
