Lowly Worm Crochet Stuffed Animal

As I mentioned in last week’s post, for Christmas one year I crocheted a stuffed animal for each of my nephews. With each stuffed animal I also included the associated book. For my two-year-old nephew, I crocheted Lowly Worm! He was one of my favorite character’s from Richard Scarry’s books. (Fun fact: Patrick Pig is the first book I remember reading by myself.)

I used the pattern found here. It takes a G crochet hook and worsted weight yarn in black, white, red, green, blue, and brown. I didn’t make the hat for him, but the pattern does include instructions for one. This project is crocheted in the round and I think he turned out super cute!

Do you have a favorite crocheted book character? I’d love to learn about them!

Hungry Caterpillar Crochet Stuffed Animal

Last year for Christmas I crocheted a book character for each of my nephews. I then gave them the character and the corresponding book. Below are pictures of the Very Hungry Caterpillar I crocheted, based on the one from Eric Carle’s book of the same name. I got the pattern for free on Ravely here.

To make this caterpillar you will need worsted wight yarn in green, yellow, red, and brown. I think all of my colors are Red Heart, but the green has lost its wrapper, so I’m not quite sure. 🙂 You’ll also need stuffing and a size F crochet needle. As well as scissors and a tapestry needle, of course.
