Designer: Crafty Emmi

Materials & Tools

  • 2.5 mm crochet hook
  • Embroidery needle
  • Sport weight yarn in 4 colors (A – dark green, B – light green, C – deep pink, D – off-white)
  • Black embroidery thread
  • Soft stuffing / polyester fiberfill
  • Optional: 5 mm black safety eyes


Change the yarn while working the last stitch in the initial color. That is: insert hook into indicated stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop. Then wrap the new color around the hook and complete the stitch as usual by pulling the yarn through both loops on the hook. The next stitch is the first in the new color.


Rnd – round
St – stitch
Sl st – slip stitch
Sc – single crochet
Sc2tog – 2 st together with sc (decrease)
BLO – back loops only
St + st – several stitches in same stitch


You work from the bottom up.

Next comes the face. As an example, just embroider friendly eyes, but variations are possible. Try making a mouth or using blush. Safety eyes also fit: place them between rnd 21 and 22, 5 sts apart.

Start stuffing and continue with color C.

Fasten off and close the remaining hole.


Make a border of slip stitches in color C around the face. You can crochet or embroider it. Finally, make a few stitches with the black embroidery thread as melon seed on the head.
