Chickenpox – Free Crochet Pattern

Crochet Pattern for Chicken Pox

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

Materials
Worsted Weight Yarn
I love this yarn in White
I love this yarn in Red
12 mm Yellow Safety eyes
Size E crochet hook
Polyfiberfill
Large Eye Needle

HDC – Half Double Crochet
DC- Double Crochet
CH- Chain
FO – Fasten Off

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.

Free Pattern – Mr. Sniffles

Free crochet cold virus pattern

It’s Mr. Sniffles. He’s the cold you want to catch. Mr. Sniffles is based on the microscopic view of the cold virus. At our house, we like to play Catch a Cold. (Hot potato with a cold virus). If you make him make sure to #drunkenauntwendy so I can find it and give you lots of love.

I have made other microbes; Mr. Sa – the MRSA super bug and Anthrax the cutest little biohazard along with Clem and Lydia, Chlamydia, and Eggbert the Chicken Pox. Want to make Mr. Sniffles, but don’t have the supplies? There’s a kit for that.
