Pocket Peep – Free Easter Crochet Pattern!

My son recently became obsessed with “Peepers” as he calls them haha!

So of course I had to crochet him one. I introduce the FREE 3-D pattern for:

Pocket Peep:

HE IS 3-D and chunky and squishy just like a real Peep!

Materials:

  • 50 yards worsted weight yarn (Shown Red Heart Super Saver in Bright Yellow)
  • Size G (4.25mm) crochet hook
  • small amount stuffing or yarn scraps
  • scissors, tapestry needle
  • small amount black yarn or black puffy pain for eyes

Finished Size:

About 5″ tall x 3″ wide

Gauge:

Not important BUT you do need nice tight amigurumi style stitches so the stuffing does not show thought. I crochet tightly. Feel free to drop down a hook size or two if you are looser tension.

Body (Make 2):

Ch 2:

Row 1: 2 sc in 2nd ch from hook. (2)

Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc. (2)

Row 3: ch 1, turn, 2 sc in each sc. (4)

Row 4: ch 1, turn, 2 sc in 1st sc, sc in nxt 2, 2 sc in last sc. (6)

Row 6-7: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc. (10)

Row 8: ch 1, turn, 2 sc in each of 1st 2 sts, sc in nxt 6 sts, 2 sc in each of last 2 sts. (14)

Row 18: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across. (10)

Row 19: ch 1, turn, sc dec over 1st 2 sts, sc in nxt 6 sts, sc dec over last 2 sts. (8)

Row 20: ch 1, turn, sc dec over 1st 2 sts, sc in nxt 4 sts, sc dec over last 2 sts, cut yarn on FIRST body piece, do NOT CUT yarn on second body piece and move to join. (6)

Join:

Pull up the final loop on the 2nd body panel so it doesn’t pull out and lay the 1st body panel made on top of the 2nd body panel made. Insert your hook in the matching stitch on the top panel where the loop is on the 2nd panel. Pull the loop through the top panel, ch 1, working through BOTH body panels at once to join, sc in each end of row around working 3 sc at the small tip on top. Before you join the bottom, stuff with polyfil (not too much) and complete round, sl st to 1st st made. Cut yarn. Weave in any ends to this point.

Mid-Body (Make 1):

Ch 5:

Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and nxt 3 chs. (4)

Row 2: ch 1, turn, 2 sc in 1st st, sc in nxt 2 sts, 2 sc in last st. (6)

Row 4-10: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across. (8)

Row 11: ch 1, turn, sc dec over 1st 2 sts, sc in nxt 4 sts, sc dec over last 2 sts. (6)

Row 12: ch 1, turn, sc dec over 1st 2 sts, sc in nxt 2 sts, sc dec over last 2 sts, do not cut yarn, continue to edge. (4)

Edge:

Rnd 1: Ch 1, do not turn, sc in end of each row down 1st side, 2 sc in 1st st on bottom, sc dec over middle 2 sts, 2 sc in last st on bottom, sc in each end of row up 2nd side, 2 sc in 1st st along top, sc dec over middle 2 sts, 2 sc in last st, sl st to 1st sc made.

Rnd 2: ch 1, do not turn, reverse sc in each sc around, sl st to 1st st made, cut yarn leaving 36: tail to sew to body.

Sew to mid-body to body assembly:

With the right side of the round used to join the body assembly facing up, position the mid-body 1 row above the flatter bottom edge and about 5 rows down from the pointed tip. Using tail, sew the mid-body (with reverse sc edge round facing up) to the body, sew just INSIDE the reverse sc round, you want that round to remain prominent to delineate between the body and mid-body. Just before last few sts are sewn down, fill with a tiny bit of stuffing.  

Head (Make 1):

Ch 2:

Row 1: 2 sc in 2nd ch from hook. (2)

Row 2: ch 1, turn, 2 sc in each st. (4)

Row 3: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc. (4)

Row 4: ch 1, turn, 2 sc in 1st st, sc in nxt 2 sts, 2 sc in last st. (6)

Row 5: ch 1, turn, 2 sc in 1st st, sc in nxt 4 sts, 2 sc in last st. (8)

Row 6: ch 1, turn, sc dec over 1st 2 sts, sc in nxt 4 sts, sc dec over last 2 sts. (6)

Row 7: ch 1, turn, (sc dec over 2 sts) three times total. (3)

Edge:

Rnd 1: ch 1, do not turn, sc in each st and end of row around, at the tip work (sc, ch 1, sc) all in the same st, sl st to 1st sc made.

Rnd 2: ch 1, do not turn, sc in each sc around, in the ch-1 sp work, (sc, ch 1, sc), sl st to 1st sc made.

Rnd 3: ch 1, do not turn, reverse sc in each st around, sl st to 1st st made, cut yarn leaving 24” tail to sew to mid-body.

Using tail end sew head to mid-body:

Pinch the sides of the head slighty so it sits higher from the body. Sew thehead to the top of the mid-body nearer the pointed tip end. Sew with the right side of the reverse sc round facing up, just inside the reverse sc round, just before you sew it down completely, stuff so it sits high from the body. It should be triangular at the nose and rounded at the top of head, sew and shape as you attach to achieve this. You can sew a few sts at the tip of the nose to “pinch” it even more pointed as well. Cut yarn. Weave in all ends.

Eyes:

You can make eyes with French knots and black yarn or do as I did and use black puffy paint.
