Adam the Sperm

Last week I posted Eve. She has a magnet in her that will attach to Adam the Sperm.  One trick with this little guy: Make sure your magnets are turned the right way so they attract instead of repel. Crochet Sperm

Worsted Weight Yarn
I love this yarn in White (62 yds)
Black Embroidery Floss
9 mm Safety eyes
Strong Magnet
Size E crochet hook
Large Eye Needle
SC – Single Crochet
HDC – Half Double Crochet
DC- Double Crochet
CH- Chain
FO – Fasten Off
SL – Slip Stitch
INC – Make two Single Crochet in Same Stitch
DEC – Single Crochet two stitches together
BLO – Back Loops Only

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
