It’s been a little while since I posted a free pattern. When my eldest daughter asked me last week, to make her friend three peas in a pod as a Galentines gift I knew this would be the perfect little pattern to post, just in time for valentines day.
I received a cricut maker for Christmas just gone and this is all very new to me, but I made these super cute little tags to complete your galentines gift. If you would like to make them here is the link to my project on cricut design space.
Lets get on and make some Hap-pea’s in a pod! Sorry, couldnt resist 🙂
2.5mm crochet hook
6mm Safety eyes
(or black yarn/cotton)
D.K/Light worsted Yarn.
I used ricorumi DK cotton
047 – Pistachio, 048 – Olive
Very small amounts of each.
This pattern is written in English using American crochet terms.
PEAS (Make 3)
Rnd 1: working into a magic ring 6 sc.
Rnd 2: [2 sc in next st] 6 times. (12)
Rnd 3: [1 sc, 2 sc in next st] 6 times. (18)
Rnd 4-8: 18 sc.
If you’re using safety eyes, place them now between rounds 5-6 approx. 5 sts apart. Begin to stuff.
Rnd 9: [1 sc, dec] 6 times. (12)
Rnd 10: [dec] 6 times. (6)
Finish off and leave a long tail, weave through the front loops of the last 6 sts and pull tight to close.
Secure your tail with a double knot, then hide the tail inside the pea.
If you prefer to embroider the eyes, do so now between rounds 5-6, approx.. 5 sts apart.
To make the pod we will begin working around the foundation chain, then carry on without joining.
Rnd 1: ch 22, 2 sc in the 2nd ch from the hook, 19 sc, 4 sc into the last ch, turning as you go to work up the other side of the chain. 19 sc, 2 sc in the last ch. (46)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in 1st st, 22 sc, 2 sc in next st, 22 sc. (48)
Rnd 3: 2 sc in 1st st, 23 sc, 2 sc in next st, 23 sc. (50)
Rnd 4: [2 sc in next st] twice, 24 sc, [2 sc in next st] twice, 22 sc. (54)
Rnd 5: 2 sc, 2 sc in next st, 26 sc, 2 sc in next st, 24 sc. (56)
Rnd 6-8: 56 sc.
Count ahead 7 stitches, pinch the end of the pod together and sc through the next st and into stitch 7, sc along the rest of the flattened part to crochet the end together, there should be another 2, maybe 3 stitches to make.
Finish off. If you would like to sew the peas in place leave an extra long tail and use it to sew all of the peas in place inside the pod. (see last picture)
If you prefer you can leave the peas removeable, in which case just weave in your end.
