Minnie Little Mouse hat, shoes and skirt set FREE PATTERN

Well, this was a custom order that was just so much fun. I love the little shoes with bows! I'm not sure if I'm allowed to use the name of the character (without getting in trouble) so we'll just call her Little Mouse instead of....well.....you know who.



This was such an easy pattern since it is just a basic beanie with some ears. Here is the basic pattern:

I used bernat super saver worsted weight yarn for all of it. 
H hook
needle for sewing on ears.

Pattern fits newborn- 3 month.

Hat


 using black, start by forming a magic ring

1. ch 2. 11 dc in ring. join to top of ch 2 (12 sts)

2.ch2. dc in same dc as ch 2.  2dc in each dc (24 st) join every round unless otherwise noted

3.ch 2  dc in same dc as ch 2. (2dc in next dc, dc in next dc) around (36 sts)

4.ch2, dc in same dc as ch 2 (2dc in next st, dc in next two sts) around (48 sts)

5. ch 2. dc in same st, dc all the way around. (48 sts each row) Continue in pattern until 6 rows of dc are done, OR until a hat height of 5.5" - 6" is achieved.
break off yarn using invisible knot.


Earflap: (make 2)
start by attaching black yarn to hat, ch2 (counts as first stitch)

(I fold the hat in half so that the front is showing. I then count in 5 sts from each side and place a stitch marker. This is where I start my earflaps and I work toward the back of the hat where the joining "seam" is.)

1.dc 10, ch 2 turn

2.dc2tog, dc in next 7 st dc2tog ch 2 turn

3.dc2tog, dc in next 5 st, dc2 tog ch 2 turn

4.dc2tog, dc in nex 3 st, dc2tog ch 2 turn

5.dc2tog,  dc in nex st, dc2tog ch 2 turn

6.dc2tog twice. break off yarn.


Edging:

with OUTSIDE of hat facing you, attach yarn to back of hat and ch 1. sc in each st around, working sc evenly over sides of earflaps. fasten off, tie in all loose ends.


Ears

You are going to make 2 of these, it is a basic circle.

using black, start by forming a magic ring.

1. ch 1, 6 sc in magic ring. DO NOT JOIN here, or anywhere unless specifically noted.

2. continuing working in the round, 2 sc in previous 6 sc. (12sc)

3.  continuing in rounds, *2sc in next sc, sc in next st* 6 times. (18 sc)

4. continuing in rounds, *2sc in next sc, sc in each of the next 2 sts* 6 times. (24 sc)

5. continuing in rounds, *2sc in next sc, sc in each of the next three sts* 6 times. (30 sc)

6. continuing in rounds, *2sc in next sc, sc in each of the next 4 sts* 6 times. (36 sc)

7.  continuing in rounds, *2sc in next sc, sc in each of the next 5 sts* 6 times. (42 sc)


note** you are going to continue to do the same thing we just did, but with decreasing this time. This makes the circle ear two layers thick, and they stand up much better this way.

8. continuing in rounds, *sc2tog, sc in each of the next 5 sts* 6 times (36 sts)

9. continuing in rounds, *sc2tog, sc in each of the next 4 sts* 6 times (30 sts)

10. continuing in rounds, *sc2tog, sc in each of the next 3 sts* 6 times (24 sts)

11. continuing in rounds, *sc2tog, sc in each of the next 2 sts* 6 times (18 sts)

12. continuing in rounds, *sc2tog, sc in each of the next 1 st* 6 times (12 sts)

13. continuing in rounds, *sc2tog* 6 times (6 sts)

leave a long tail, fasten off and break yarn. With a needle, make sure hole is closed. flatten to make a nice round circle. I also weave the needle back and forth a few times attaching the two layers of the ear so that it doesn't puff out to make a 'ball'. You want nice, flat circles.

Sew the two ears evenly onto hat, pinning in place first to make sure of the placement.

Using Red yarn, I found a bow pattern here.


Shoes


I just used my Pretty and plain mary jane pattern, but used all red. I added white bows, but you could add polka dots or anything you want. The sky is the limit!




Skirt

I used the diaper cover pattern from the Little brimmed hat and diaper cover pattern on my blog. i used white. 

for the skirt overlay:
Minnie Skirt: Materials: Red Worsted Weight Yarn 
 Size H Crochet Hook White buttons 
Abbreviations: HDC= Half Double Crochet 

Chain 55, HDC in second chain from hook and all the way across, chain 1, turn (54 HDC) If this is WAY longer than your diaper covers waist line then I would adjust now. Stitch count doesn't really matter that much.

Row 2: 2 HDC in first stitch, HDC in next, *2 HDC, HDC, *continue for the rest of row, chain 1, turn 

Row 3-7: HDC across, chain 1, turn.

Row 8: add a scalloped edge.  *skip first 2 stitches, 5 double crochets into next stitch, skip next 2 
stitches, single crochet into next stitch, repeat from * to end and finish off.

I crocheted little white polka dots by starting with a magic ring and hdc9 in each. You can decide if you like them bigger or smaller.  I then sewed them on.  I then sewed the skirt onto the diaper cover. This 
takes a bit of adjusting to get it just right so that there is a bit of cross-over in the front.

For the tail all I did was sc a line, then sc back on it. sew it on. Voila! 





There you have it. I hope you have fun making it. The sky is the limit to how you can do this. Check out the below photos to see more ideas. These are all the Mickey and Minnie inspired hats that I have made. Happy Crocheting!

    2. Hello Kristi! Your patterns are Adorable and I sooo appreciate that you share them with all your viewers/followers! I love your simple profile here! I am also a crafter for far too many years than I care to admit here, and my hubby is like your own, in the fact that he has been known to come to the door of my crafting space, peer in making sure I am still alive and kickin' then simply turn and walk away.:) He is my saint of 44+ yrs and counting! Thank you so much for sharing and I can't wait to try this pattern out.

  7. Hi, This is too cute! Quick question, on the ears, what does "*2c in next sc, sc in next st* 6 times" mean? I've never seen just a "c", is it supposed to be a ch or sc? I'm fairly new to crocheting :) Also, did you ever write out a pattern for the ruffle skirt?

    1. 2 single crochets in the first stitch, then 1 single crochet in the next 6 stitches, so 8 total over 7 stitches :)

  12. Any chance you have this pattern (hat, diaper cover with skirt and booties) in a knitting pattern? I'm very new to knitting so trying to transfer a crochet pattern to a knitting pattern is way above my level.

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Ashley, the hat pattern would be the same, just with a color change. If you are looking for a larger size, try the owl hat pattern on this site. It is for a slightly bigger size. The ears are the same. TO make the polka dots I just started with a magic ring and 9 hdc in magic ring. Then I sewed them on. Hope that helps.

    2. It's been a year since this post, and hopefully you have found a way to print it by now, but if not, it's very simple. Just select all, copy it, and open up a word document and paste it. Then you can save it and print it.

    1. Hi Tawny, I don't have it written for 6-9 month but the owl hat pattern (link at the top of the page) is written for approx that size You could just do a solid color and not do the eyes and ears etc. Check out the hat sizing chart link at the top of the page as well for some helpful tips on how to size any hat.

  28. Very cute. I just want to let people know that if you are being brought to this website from a link on pinterest, attached to MY picture that has been stolen by someone, this is not the pattern for MY outfit. This is my photo that has been used thousands of times on pinterest leading here. I do not have a written pattern for my original design and would love for people to stop using my images to link to this pattern here. While the pattern is somewhat similar, it is not the same! https://www.pinterest.com/pin/AevSZecflKSF-B4BvgZrcjiCjoqou6Tq-ZODdFJ-Twsv4yw02tbSGHk/
