Remember a couple of weeks back, I crocheted chocolate chip cookies? And what drink goes well with cookies? Milk of course! I just had to make a glass of milk amigurumi to pair with the choc chip cookies. I think they look adorable together!
Milk has a way of bringing me back to my childhood. Chocolate milk that is. I have very fond memories of drinking Magnolia chocolate or chocolait from the glass bottles. It was a very exciting morning when we received the Magnolia delivery. Oh, those were the days!
Free pattern and video tutorial below.
Crochet along with me, watch the video tutorial:
GLASS OF MILK
You will need:
– 3.5mm crochet hook
– 8 ply (light worsted/DK) yarn in light blue or light grey and white or cream
– Yarn needle
– 7.5mm safety eyes
– Toy stuffing
– Small amount of pink yarn
– Stitch marker (optional)
– Sewing pins (optional)
– You’ll need to know how to make a magic ring/circle.
– You will be crocheting in spirals.
– Invisible decrease technique was used for this pattern – if you’re not familiar with this decrease, a regular single crochet decrease is perfectly fine to do.
– Have fun crocheting!
