Droid Mouse

     The Droid factory was under attack!  It would seem, not surprisingly, that Zija (and to a lesser extent Gurr) really enjoys the Droid head pieces and will go to great lengths to retrieve them.  Although she is horribly adorable when she takes off with a piece and tries to stash it somewhere I have to keep her from doing it, otherwise the Droid heads would be full of cat hair and other miscellaneous fluffs from the carpet and kitchen floor.

     In response to this series of attacks I created a decoy diversion.  Enter Droid Mouse!  Designed to grab and hold kitty attention and divert it from the factory storage unit (an upper shelf near my crochet chair).  Droid Mouse was very successful and has so far kept the Droid parts safe for nearly a week now.

   I made this mouse 'off the cuff' as they say, with no pattern.  I did use elements of the Droid pattern and just crocheted till it looked decent. However, I will attempt to piece together a pattern so that anyone interested can make their very own Droid Mouse.

     I used the same shade of green I've been using to make the Droids (see previous post) and the same hook (5.0 mm).

{Pattern Documentation still in progress}

Start: Ch 6.
Rnd 1: Ch2 in 2nd chain from hook, sc in next 3 sc, 2sc in last sc, continue working to other side of chain, 1 sc in next 4 loops (back of the first chain), 2sc in last loop, join to beginning with sl st.
Rnd 2:  Chain 1, 2 sc in next sc, sc
