Chickenpox – Free Crochet Pattern

Here’s another addition to my Cuddly Microbes set. Check out the previous ones Anthrax, Mr. Sa, Mr. Sniffles, Clem and Lydia. You can have a whole set of little microbes.

Meet Eggbert. He’s a Chicken Pox virus. Now there is a vaccination for Chicken Pox. I remember people sending their kids over to get Chicken Pox when I had it. It was summer, my grandparents were up for a visit, but I couldn’t leave and stayed on the couch.

The pattern is not tested. Let me know if you have any questions or if there are problems with the pattern. If you post a picture, use #drunkenauntwendy so I can find it.

Crochet Pattern for Chicken Pox
Chicken Pox

Worsted Weight Yarn
I love this yarn in White
I love this yarn in Red
12 mm Yellow Safety eyes

CH- Chain

Note: 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.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at drunkenauntwendy@gmail.com.
