Crochet Alien Pattern

This crochet alien pattern will knock you out of this world for three reasons: it is very low sew, works up quickly, and is made with cuddly, plush yarn.

There are a couple of things to love about this crochet alien pattern. It is a simple pattern, but still very cute! This would be a great thing to make if you do a lot of markets, because it works up quickly. This crochet pattern is low-sew.

    This alien pattern is the plushie version of an earlier one I did! The yarn I used is Premier’s Parfait Chunky in Key Lime. You can substitute this with another size 6 bulky yarn, it might just change the size a little bit. In my experience, Michael’s Sweet Snuggles Lite yarn is the closest thing to the Parfait Chunky. Bernat Blanket yarn could also be used. You could also go a little bit more out of this world and make him glow in the dark! Or, if you want to use worsted weight yarn, you could try out the other crochet alien pattern I have.

      This little alien is made from the bottom up. You make two feet and attach them as you go. The head is made by decreasing the body and increasing back out. You will use a neck strengthener to keep the head stable. The feet, body, and head are made in one piece. The arms and antenna are attached at the end.
