Betty the Yeti – Free Crochet Pattern


This quarter I have taken up beading. It was really hard to start. Having the proper tools definitely makes it easier. I highly recommend using the right tools and amazon in order to make progress. Uploading images is proving difficult today. Make sure you check out what I have been up to on Instagram.

Meet Betty the Yeti. I created her for a contest. I didn’t win, but I adore her.

She is made with Bernat Blanket Yarn which is what gives it the super soft snuggliness.

Remember she isn’t tested. Let me know if you have any questions or issues. Please us #drunkenauntwendy if you post so I can find it and give you props.

Note: Almost the entire project is worked in the round. Use a stitch marker or a scrap piece of yarn to mark the beginning of each row. Then you don’t have to count every row. Do not join unless instructed to.

Parentheses indicate a repeat. Repeat the stitches in the parentheses for the number of times indicated.

The bracketed number [] is the number of stitches at the end of each row.

I spread my increases out so there isn’t a seam on the finished piece. If you do not like this method, you can do regular increases.

See last page for alternative color options
