Pattern: How to crochet a Gingerbread Man?


We start with the head and finish with the bottom of the body. 

The head and the body – Gingerbread Man Crochet Pattern

  • Round 10: [2 sc, 1 dec] x6. (18)
  • Round 11: [1 sc, 1 dec] x6. (12)

Place the eyes between rounds 6 and 7, spaced by 3 stitches.

With the tapestry needle and the white pearl cotton, make the mouth.

With the tapestry needle and the pink yarn, make 2 little dots for the cheeks.

We are now doing the body.

  • Round 12: [1 sc in all st]. (12)
  • Round 13: [1 sc, 1 inc] x6. (18)
  • Rounds 14-18: [1 sc in all st]. (18)

Fill the head.

Fill the body as you go.

Join a new color, white.

  • Round 19: [1 sc in all st]. (18)

Join a new color, brown.

  • Round 20: working in the back loop only (blo): [1 sc in all st]. (18)
  • Rounds 21-22: [1 sc in all st]. (18)

We are now adding a row in the front loop of round 24. This will allow your doll to stand up. You can skip this step if you don’t want it to stand up.

Join the brown yarn in any front loop of Round 24 (I would suggest joining in a loop in the back so it won’t be too visible). 

  • Round 27: working in the front loop only (flo): [2 sc, 1 inc] x6. (24)

 

Finish with a slip stitch in the first st of round 27 and fasten off.
