Nussemus (Cuddle mice)

Anybody might need a little bit of knitted love sometimes. “Project nussemus" (project cuddle mouse) is a newly launched project where knitters join together to knit adorable, little mice for children who could use the friendship of a little, woolly mouse to help them through a difficult time.

In cooperation with local yarn shops across the Denmark, Filcolana and knitwear designer Annette Danielsen have launched this little mousy, knitting project.

Right now we have a big pile of yarn and a pattern for the cute little rodent. What we are in need of is nimble fingered knitters who can transform the two into woolly mice to the delight of children.

The plan is simple:
- You fetch 2 skeins of yarn at one of the many yarn stores that are involved in the project, as well as the pattern.
- You knit a mouse with the yarn and return it to the store.
- We distribute the mice to children who could use a little “nussemus” (cuddle mouse).

So far there are plans in motion to distribute the mice to the following places:
Shelters - There are currently agreements with Aarhus, Copenhagen and Herning.
Foreningen Savn - a charity helping children and relatives of incarcerated.
Red Cross
We have selected places where we think children who could use a Nussemus are to be found.

Knitters who have left over or extra yarn, are of course more than welcome to knit nussemus from this as well. The pattern for the Nussemus can be found below.

Filcolana sponsors the yarn, Annette Danielsen has designed the Nussemus and local yarn stores are helping with the distribution of yarn and collection of finished mice. And you as the knitter can help knit the mice.

From Friday the 17th, yarn and pattern can be collected at the following locations:

a colorwork brioche stitch shawl
Rachel Søgaard

Brioche stitch is on trend at the moment. Especially the colorwork brioche that designer Stephen West often designs, using strong, contrasting and variegated yarns and brioche.
I have chosen a calmer approach to two color brioche in this shawl worked in Pernilla.

Brioche stitch is on trend and there is a myriad of patterns in the technique. Here a simplified version called fisherman’s rib is used, which makes it possible to create vertical stripes in 2 colors.

Ninni is knit top down seamlessly featuring raglan sleeves and a lovely lace pattern on the back. Top it off with your favorite buttons in a matching or contrasting color and wear paired with dressy jeans, a narrow or wide-swinging skirt or an elegant sheath dress.

Short poncho or cape knitted in Pernilla by Filcolana. The poncho can be worn over a t-shirt and a jacket. The shorter length means the arms have full mobility, making it simple to wear while biking, driving of sitting at the keyboard.

This baby onesie is a practical knitting project, but also super cute with the little doggy heads on the yoke. Inspiration is taken from traditional Faroese knitting patterns, and this Rocky is part of a small baby collection based on the the Kettunøsin pattern.
