Sweet Peas in a Pod: Crochet!

Two Sweet Peas in a Pod

These sweet peas were adapted from Ana Paula Rimoli's adorable 3 Peas in a Pod. I wanted to make something quite a bit smaller so instead of WW yarn I went with a lovely shade of green in a super soft crochet thread 10. Using a crochet hook size 5 (aka size teeny tiny) I made two peas and thought my hands were going to fall off. So I decided to make one a boy and one a girl and put them in their own little pod. They fit snuggly right inside and pop out easily.

The kids love to play with play food and there's just something special about food with eyes :) I have a special place in my crochet heart for these two...
She-Pea boldly leaves the safety of the pod
He-Pea ventures out as well...
Look at the flower in my "hair"!

Just a handful

  1. ADORABLE!!!! i know how to crochet, but I don't think I could do this! Nice job.

  2. Thanks, Snapdragon :) I finished these and definitely needed a break from crochet thread. However, now that it's been a week and seeing how they turned out, I'm sure I'll pick up that size 5 hook again. I guess I'm a glutton for punishment - HA!

  3. Seeing your comment, Hippywitch, reminded me I also meant to give her some rouge on her cheeks but I totally had forgotten about that until now!
