    Free Crochet Chick Pattern – Chick Jagger

    I am back this week with the regular yarn free crochet chick pattern that I promised last week when I released my Sir Clucksalot toy (find the free crochet chicken pattern HERE). Sir Clucksalot is made with faux fur yarn and I know that some one you aren’t ready to dip your hooks into that yet so I wanted to create a regular yarn version of Sir Clucksalot for everyone to enjoy. This week’s free crochet chick pattern is named Chick Jagger.

    I named this guy Chick Jagger because, compared to his fluffy brother, Sir Clucksalot, he is a smoothe operator. He drives all the hens wild with his smoothe moves and he is a big deal around the chicken pen. I cannot resist a good chicken pun or giving my little toys a bit of a personality and back story.

    At the beginning of this week, our Pal Pascal is looking a bit like an alien. For Part Two of our amigurumi boy doll free pattern crochet along, we’ll be adding arms, hair and a nose to our pal Pascal to give him a bit more character and a more earthly appearance. Each arm is made separately and sewn onto the body, just below the neck. The nose is embroidered on simply and then the hair is crocheted as a hair cap and then sewn onto the head of our doll.

    It’s been so much fun seeing everyone’s progress so far! Don’t forget that you can join in the fun with us over in The Loopy Lamb Crochet Community on Facebook and see everyone’s progress. I’m active in the group and will be available to answer any questions posed in the group as well.

    Crochet Boy Doll Free Pattern Crochet Along – Week 1

    Amigurumi doll made with this Crochet Boy Doll Free Pattern
    This post may contain affiliate links. All opinions are my own.

    I am SO excited to be sharing this with you all today! It’s the start of my latest free crochet along! This is one of my absolute favourite events to host because it’s just so fun doing this with you and seeing all your beautiful creations. For our new crochet along, I’ve created a crochet boy doll free pattern for us, which I’ve named My Pal Pascal. This pattern was created based on requests from participants in my last crochet along: My Dolly Molly. After finish Molly there were a lot of requests for a crochet boy doll free pattern so, I got to work on it and My Pal Pascal was born.

    I hope you will join along with us for the crochet along. If you do, you can join The Loopy Lamb Crochet Community Group on Facebook where we’ll be chatting and sharing our progress.

    The crochet boy doll free pattern for My Pal Pascal has been split into three parts to make creating him a little more manageable and so you can crochet along with us. Please reference the posts below for each part of the CAL and instructions.

    Before we get more into the pattern, let’s talk about My Pal Pascal. Like my My Dolly Molly doll, is a crochet doll with clothes that are removeable. For the crochet along, Pascal’s pants and shirt are made as separate pieces and can be removed and put back on the doll.

    My Pal Pascal was designed in a way that minimizes sewing. Pascal’s legs, body and head are all crocheted in a single piece. The arms and hair are made separately and sewn on. His clothing is crocheted in a separate piece and as mentioned above, are removeable. There is some sewing for the shirt in order to fasten the button but that was unavoidable in order to make the shirt removeable.

    Crochet Bunny Lovey Free Pattern

    crochet bunny lovey made with a free crochet pattern
    This post may contain affiliate links. All opinions are my own.

    I’m back this week with the third and final installment of My Cuddle Friends crochet lovey pattern series. This week I have a crochet bunny lovey free pattern to share with you call called My Cuddle Bunny Lovey. This lovey pattern features a cute and cuddley bunny head and arms and a beautiful lovey blanket attached to it. I’ve used three different, coordinating colours for my blanket but it’s easily customized to suit your personal needs and tastes.

    This crochet bunny lovey free pattern makes the perfect crochet baby shower gift! Crochet loveys are always a big hit at baby showers and they always get great reactions from everyone. It always makes us feel so wonderful when you get such a nice reaction to gift you give. Even better when it’s something you made yourself and put all that love and care into.

    If you enjoy this crochet bunny lovey free pattern but you’re looking for a full-sized crochet bunny pattern instead, check out my amigurumi bunny pattern called Buttons the Bunny. He also makes a fantastic shower gift (a baby shower gift was actually the reason I created that pattern) and he even comes with a cute little sweater.

    For this project, we’ll be doing something called eye indentation. This is used to give some shape to the bunny’s face. Don’t let that intimidate you though. It’s as easy as tying a piece of yarn to each of the eye, pulling those pieces of yarn and tying a knot. I have step-by-step instructions and a diagram to help you out. If you’d like to skip this step, that’s ok, your bunny will still look great, it just won’t have the exact same shape.

    Crochet Bunny Lovey Pattern – My Cuddle Bunny Crochet Lovey

    Head:

    Row 1: Using Brindle and a 3.5mm hook, make a MC and SC 6 into the MC (6)
    Row 2: (SCINC) X 6 (12)
    Row 3: (SC 1, SCINC) X 6 (18)
    Row 4: SC 1, SCINC, (SC 2, SCINC) X 5, SC 1 (24)
    Row 5: (SC 3, SCINC) X 6 (30)
    Rows 6 – 7: SC around (30)
    Row 8: SC 2, SCINC (SC 4, SCINC) X5, SC 2 (36)
    Row 9: SC around (36)
    Row 10: (SC 5, SCINC) X 6 (42)
    Row 11: SC 3, SCINC (SC 6, SCINC) X 5, SC 3 (48) – **Place safety eyes in stitches 27 and 44 of Row 11

    To define the face, we will be using a technique called eye indentation. After inserting the safety eyes (don’t attach the washers yet), use your two long strands of yarn in different colours to tie knots around the post of each safety eye. Place the washers on the safety eyes. The long ends of your yarn should point downwards towards the back of the head and through the opening. Just before closing the head, we’ll pull these strings so that that the eyes will be pulled back, creating an indent in the face.  As you add stuffing to the head, make sure these pieces don’t get pushed in with the stuffing.


    Rows 12 – 16:
    SC around (48)
    Row 17: (SC 7, SCINC) X 6 (54) – Start stuffing, adding a bit more each row.
    Row 18: SC around (54)
    Row 19: (SC 7, SCDEC) X 6 (48)
    Row 20: SC around (48)
    Row 21: SC 3, SCDEC (SC 6, SCDEC) X 5, SC 3 (42)
    Row 22: (SC 5, SCDEC) X 6 (36)
    Row 23: SC 2, SCDEC (SC 4, SCDEC) X5, SC 2 (30)

    Now we’re going to indent the face.  Using two differently coloured strands helps make this step a little easier so you know which yarn is tied to which eye.  Take the yarn attached to the right eye post and cross it over top of the yarn attached to the left yarn post (creating an x with the yarn).  Pull the yarn taught gently until you get the indentation in the face that you like.  You’ll want to make sure you have the amount of stuffing you want in the face when you do this step because if you have too much, you can pull your stitches or if you have too little, you can have too much of an indent.  Once you’re satisfied, knot the two strands of yarn together.  It is helpful if you have someone to hold the cross in the yarn while you make the knot so you don’t lose tension.  Make sure the knot is secure.  Tuck your ends into the head with the rest of the stuffing.

    Row 24: (SC 3, SCDEC) X 6 (24) – Continue to add stuffing with each row.
    Row 25: SC 1, SCDEC, (SC 2, SCDEC) X 5, SC 1 (18)
    Row 26: (SC 1, SCDEC) x 6 (12)
    Row 27: (SCDEC) x 6 (6)
    FO.  Weave the tail through the FLO to close the opening.  Weave in ends.

    Embroidering the Nose

    Using the pink embroidery thread and a tapestry needle, embroider the nose onto the face starting in the stitch directly below the MC.  Put your needle through 1 stitch above and to the either side of the MC to create a V shape.  Continue embroidering through these three stitches until you are satisfied with your nose.  FO and hide your ends inside the head.

    Ears (Make 2)

    Row 1: Using Brindle and a 3.5mm hook, make a MC and SC 6 into the MC (6)
    Row 2: (SC 2, SCINC) x 2 (8)
    Row 3: SC around (8)
    Row 4: (SCINC, SC 3) x 2 (10)
    Row 5: SC around (10)
    Row 6: (SCINC, SC 1) x 5 (15)
    Row 7: SC around (15)
    Row 8: (SC 2, SCINC) x 5 (20)
    Rows 9 – 16: SC around (20)
    Row 17: (SC 2, SCDEC) x 5 (15)
    Row 18: SC around (15)
    Row 19: (SC 1, SCDEC) x 5 (10)
    Row 20: SC around (10)

    FO leaving an extra-long tail to sew onto head. Do Not Stuff. When sewing the ears on, pull the yarn taught to help the ears stand upright.  After I complete one pass through, I go back and stitch them again to give them a firm foundation.

    Amigurumi Doll Clothes – Sleepy Time Molly

    My Dolly Molly wearing amigurumi doll clothes made with this free crochet pattern.
    This post may contain affiliate links. All opinions are my own.

    Earlier this year, I released a crochet along pattern to make an amigurumi doll with removeable clothes named My Dolly Molly. Molly was a big hit and there was a lot of requests for new outfits. Today’s free pattern is to make amigurumi doll clothes for Molly. Sleepy Time Molly has a little nightgown, topped off with a bow and a pair of slippers.

    Your little one can dress Molly up for bed when they are getting themselves ready for bed. My daughter is actually the one that inspired this outfit. She absolutely loves to dress up her toys in her pajamas when she gets ready for bed. The only toy she wasn’t attempting to dress for bed was her My Dolly Molly. When I asked her why, she said it was because she didn’t have pajamas for Molly. Well, I couldn’t just let Molly go without so I made Molly her own bedtime wardrobe.

    Pin it for later Save

    The My Dolly Molly pattern includes an removeable dress pattern. You can find the free version of the My Dolly Molly pattern here on my site, broken into three parts for the crochet along: Part One, Part Two and Part Three. Each part of the pattern includes step-by-step video tutorials as well. The full pattern is also available as an ad-free PDF version HERE in my Etsy and Ravelry shops. Molly also has a dress-up outfit called Molly the Mermaid here for free on the blog.

    The original My Dolly Molly doll didn’t have any shoes so you can make the slippers from the Sleepy Time Molly pattern in a variety of colours to match Molly’s other outfits.

    The three different versions of the amigurumi doll with removeable clothes

    I have bundled the patterns for Molly, her Molly the Meraid and Sleepy Time Molly together in my Etsy and Ravelry shops for a special price. Check out the bundle HERE in my Ravelry Shop and HERE in my Etsy shop.

    • Using the same hook and yarn that you used to make your doll can help with making sure that your clothes fit your Molly doll.


    Special Techniques:

    • Invisible Join: FO leaving a long tail. Thread the tail onto a tapestry needle.  Place the tapestry needle through the top of the 2nd ST from front to back and pull through.  Place tip of needle into top of the last ST of the round, under the back loop of the stitch, and pull through to the back of the work.  Weave in the end.

    Crochet Gnome Christmas Tree Ornament Pattern

    Whether you’re ready or not, the holiday season is upon us and soon we’ll be decorating our trees (if you haven’t already). Adorn your tree with these quick, easy and oh so adorable Gnome Christmas Tree Ornaments.

    For this free crochet pattern, I’ve included two different versions which will help you get similar results using two different materials for the base of the ornament. Version 1 of the pattern includes making a beard for your Gnome Christmas Tree Ornament with faux fur yarn that takes only a few minutes to make. If you’re pressed for time or aren’t comfortable with using faux fur yarns, I have made Version 2. For Version 2, the beard of the Gnome Christmas Tree Ornament is made using a faux fur pom pom. Both versions are quick, easy and (more than) a little addictive. You have have a tree full of them before you know it.

    This Gnome Christmas Tree Ornament Free Pattern has been sponsored by Clover USA. All opinions are my own.

    If you haven’t used faux yarn to crochet amigurumi before, this Gnome Christmas Tree Ornament pattern is a great pattern to finally give it a try. The beard of Version 1 of this pattern is made with faux fur yarn and is only a few rounds so it isn’t a big committment and will give you some practice working with it. Faux fur yarn is incredibly forgiving so if you don’t have the tidiest seaming when putting your Gnome Christmas Tree Ornament together, no one can tell. The fur hides it all and still looks great. Check out my tips and tricks for using faux fur yarns in the video below (or find the write up HERE) so you can hit the ground running. If you’re looking to give faux fur yarns a try, I recommend using Fable Fur from WeCrochet (found HERE). It’s my favourite faux fur yarn as it has a thick strap on the back of the yarn which helps you feel the stitches, even if you can’t see them.

    NOTES:

    • Gauge is not vital to the project but it may affect the amount of yarn needed for the project. 
    • A 5.5mm crochet hook is recommended for the project but if you find you are unable to feel your stitches, you can adjust your hook until you can more easily feel your stitches to know where to place your stitches.  This may however affect your gauge and therefore, the amount of yarn needed. 
    • This pattern is worked in continuous rounds (unless stated otherwise).  Do not join at the end of the row, unless indicated.  A stitch marker is used to keep track of the beginning of the round.
    • All pieces made in the Fable Fur are worked and sewn onto the project with the wrong side facing out to show the better-looking side of the fur.

    Hat for Both Gnome Versions


    Round 1:
    Using 3.5mm hook and Brava Worsted Weight in Red, make a MC and SC 6 into the MC. (6)
    Round 2: SC around (6)
    Round 3:
    (SCINC) x 6 (12)
    Rounds 4 – 5: SC around (12)
    Round 6: (SC, SCINC) x 6 (18)
    Rounds 7 – 8:
    SC around (18)
    Round 9: SC, SCINC, (SC 2, SCINC) x 5, SC (24)
    Rounds 10 – 11: SC around (24)
    Round 12: (SC 3, SCINC) x 6 (30)
    Round 13: SC around (30)
    Round 14:  SC 2, SCINC, (SC 4, SCINC) x 6, SC 2 (36)
    Round 15: (SC 5, SCINC) x 6 (42)
    Rounds 16 – 18: SC around (42)Join last ST to the first ST with a SL ST.
    If using the faux fur yarn base, FO leaving a long tail to sew the hat onto the base.

    If using the pompom as your base (Version 2), FO and weave in ends.


    Creating the Hanger (for both versions):

    Cut a length of yarn that matches your hat colour to approximately 8 – 10” long.  Thread the tail onto a tapestry needle and pull the yarn through a stitch near the top of the hat.  Do NOT pull it all the way through.  Thread it through another stitch at the top of the hat and pull it inside the hat.  Take the two ends of your yarn and tie a knot inside the hat, making sure that you leave enough yarn outside of the hat to hang it on the tree. Pull the loop up to finish the hanger. (Need help with this step? Check out my YouTube video below)

    How to Assemble Your Crochet Gnome Christmas Tree Ornament (Version 2)

    trio of crochet gnome tree ornaments made with this free crochet pattern.

    Beard (for Version 1 Only)

    Round 1: Using 5.5mm hook and Fable Fur in Eisbar, make a MC and SC 6 into the MC. (6)
    Round 2: (SCINC) x 6 (12)
    Round 3: (SCINC, SC) x 6 (18)
    Rounds 4 – 6: SC around (18) – Add stuffing.  Continue to add more stuffing as you go.
    Round 7: (SCDEC, SC) x 6 (12)
    Round 8: (SCDEC) x 6 (6)
    FO leaving a long tail to sew the bead onto the Beard.  Finish stuffing. Thread the tail onto a tapestry needle and feed the needle down through the center hole left from finishing off the beard and out through the side of the beard towards you.  I like to go down approximately 3 rows. 

    needle coming out the side of a faux fur yarn pompom
    bead sewn onto side of faux fur yarn pompom

    Use the tail to sew the nose onto the side of the beard near the top of the beard (make sure the hat will cover the top part of the nose before securing it).  FO and weave in ends.  Alternatively, if you don’t want to sew on the nose, you can use some hot glue to glue it to the side of your beard.  Just make sure you’re confident of your placement before applying the glue.

    Assembly:

    Version 1:

    Stuff your hat with stuffing and place over top of your gnome beard so one edge slightly overhangs the nose.  Sew around the bottom of the hat, securing it to the beard, adding stuffing as you go.  When you get to the bead, pull the yarn through the stitch closest to the end of the bead in the hat and then through the hole in the bead to the other side and then through the stitch closest to the bead’s other side and pull taught(see image below).  Continue sewing the hat to the beard.  FO and weave in ends. Alternatively, if you don’t want to sew the hat on, you could glue it on using the hot glue and glue gun.

    Version 2:

    Use a scrap piece of yarn and thread it through your bead.  Tie the yarn to the elastic on your pompom so the bead hangs slightly against the top/side of the pompom. 

    fur pompom showing it has an elastic attachment
    pompom with bead nose attachment

    Use an elastic to wrap around the pompom to hold the fur down to make adding glue easier and less messy.  Stuff your hat with stuffing and place over top of your pompom to test the placement of your bead.  When satisfied add hot glue around the top of the pompom where the edge of your hat will meet/touch the pompom, making sure to add some to the top of the bead.  Place stuffed hat on top of the pompom and hold in place until glue cools/hat is secure.

    Before we get more into the pattern, let’s talk about My Dolly Molly. Molly is a crochet doll with clothes that are removeable. For the crochet along, Molly’s dress is made as a separate piece and can be removed and put back on the doll. If you all want to see more outfits and accessories for Molly, let me know and I can try to create some more free doll clothes patterns for her in future posts.

    Molly was designed in a way that minimizes sewing. Molly’s legs, body and head are all crocheted in a single piece. The arm and hair are made separately and sewn on. Her doll dress is crocheted in a separate piece and as mentioned above, is removeable. There is some sewing for the dress in order to fasten the buttons but that was unavoidable in order to make the dress removeable.
