Catnip Mouse Toy Pattern

Here it finally is! The long promised pattern for my catnip mice toys. If you'd like to purchase a copy for yourself, please follow the directions below. This is a copyrighted pattern, so please, no sharing.

The mouse is knit from the nose to the tail in one piece. It starts as stockinette and changes to garter stitch. The tail is crocheted using the final stitch. Yes, the ears are knit in as you go. Some people may have trouble with the ears so I've included some detailed pics with the pattern about how to make them. Don't worry, if you follow the directions step-by-step the ears are easy.

All money from this pattern will be donated to Pet Refuge.

I'm a beggining knitter, so I'm probably just reading the pattern for the ear wrong... The numbers aren't adding up for me. The pattern says I should have 8 stitches on my right needle when I start the ear, but I have only 7. What am I doing wrong?

You should have 8 stitches. Knit the first 4 stitches (4 sts). In the next stitch knit in the front & back to increase 2 stitches (3 sts from 1), then make 1 stitch (1 st). That will give you 8 sts.
