Pattern: How to crochet a Potato?


Let’s start – Potato – Free Crochet Pattern

 

The body – Potato – Free Crochet Pattern

  • The potato is worked in continuous rounds (as a spiral). Use a stitch marker if needed.
  • Remember to stuff as you crochet.

With a 2.75 mm crochet and yarn in light brown OR with a 4.5 mm and yarn in light brown:

    • Round 1: start 6 sc in a magic ring. (6) – NB: if you work with plush yarn: ch2; make 6 sc in the 2nd ch from the hook. (6)
    • Round 2: [6 inc]. (12)
    • Round 3: [1 inc in the next st, 1 sc]x6. (18)
    • Round 4: [1 inc in the next st, 8 sc]x2. (20)
    • Rounds 5-6: [1 sc in all st]. (20)
    • Round 7: [1 dec, 8 sc]x2. (18)
    • Rounds 8-11: [1 sc in all st]. (18)
    • Round 12: [1 dec, 1 sc]x6. (12)

Place the eyes between Rounds 9 and 10, spaced by 2 st.

Fill the body with polyfill.

  • Round 13: [6 dec]. (6)

Cut the yarn, close the body and fasten off.

With your tapestry needle and the black cotton yarn, make a mouth over round 8.


The arms (make 2) – Potato – Free Crochet Pattern

With a 2.75 mm crochet and the yarn in light brown OR with a 4.5 mm and yarn in light brown :

  • Row 1: ch 5. (5)
  • Row 2: starting in the 2nd ch from the hook: 1 sc in each chain. (4)

Cut the yarn but leave a long tail for sewing.

Sew the arms to the body over Rounds 5 and 6, spaced by 2 stitches.

It is sometimes hard to sew such small pieces. I only sewed the external part of the arm (“shoulder” part) and I added a little bit of glue to the rest of the arm.

The legs (make 2) – Potato – Free Crochet Pattern

The legs are facultative. Some people prefer the version without legs while other people like the legs. Your choice!

With a 2.75 mm crochet and the yarn in light brown OR with a 4.5 mm and yarn light brown :

  • Round 1: start 5 sc in a magic ring. (5) – NB: if you work with plush yarn: ch2; make 5 sc in the 2nd ch from the hook. (5)

Cut the yarn but leave a long tail for sewing. Insert the yarn in the first sc to close the leg.

Sew the legs to the body over Rounds 2 and 3, spaced by 1-2 stitches. Note: Just like for the arms, I used a little bit of glue. I also placed the right side of the legs against the potato’s body.
