Despite her small size, the accompanying guide is 22 pages long and features 90 professional photos, so she will take some time to complete. You will only need two small 0.55mm crochet hooks, sewing thread, and different colors of yarn (the famous little mouse pattern is another one that would do well with lots of pink for the outfit as well as her tail, whiskers, feet, and hands).

Frequently Asked Questions
What Are The Benefits Of Crocheting?
There are various benefits to be had with crochet as a hobby. The repetitive nature of crafting hobbies -such as crochet and knitting- has a soothing and calming effect which can, in turn, lead to helping with issues such as stress, anxiety, and sleep insomnia.
It is also a great way to be able to create thoughtful and unique gifts for friends, family, and even for yourself!
Is Crochet Good For Your Brain?
Yes! Studies have shown that activities such as crocheting and knitting actually help to postpone memory loss and defend against the loss of brain function that occurs naturally with age.
Activities such as these- along with others like reading and gaming- can slightly reduce the risk of mild cognitive impairment due to the cognitive thought that is needed to concentrate on them.
What Is The Difference Between Crochet And Knitting?
Though similar, these are two different crafts that are executed in different ways. The major difference here is the tools, with knitting being done via two knitting needles and crocheting done via a crochet hook. The stitches that are used in both hobbies are also one of their greatest differences.
Knitting uses a looping technique when it comes to stitches whereas crocheting features stitches that tend to look like knots.
