Oh boy, looks like Sunday is almost over and we all know what’s coming next… the much dreaded MONDAY!!! But first, let’s enjoy a FREE pattern!
This week hasn’t been much fortunate for me, in the crochet domain, as I’ve been feeling some really annoying wrist pain and haven’t been able to crochet much because of it. Nonetheless, I still tried to create something, which brings us to today’s post.
I’ve been in love with this character called Hibud by Yoyo the Ricecorpse for a while now and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to bring it to crochet form. It’s a chubby little being with an awkward face and a leaf on its head, simply perfect! Here’s the original character that inspired me and keep scrolling to find the pattern. Have fun!
HIBUD CROCHET PATTERN
The pattern is written in U.S. terminology. This project is worked in rounds so you might want to use a stitch marker to mark the end/beginning of each round (a contrasting piece of yarn should be enough). There is no specific gauge for this project, just try to keep it tight and even throughout. Your final Hibud will end up with approximately 9 cm (4 in). If you make a Hibud of your own with this pattern I would love to see it, so please tag me in your posts and/or use the hashtag #lemonyarncreationspattern on social media. Don’t forget to also tag the original creator of this character @yoyothericecorpse.
