Sleepy Moon PATTERN

Hi, I promised tutorial & pattern for Sleepy Moon, so here it is :) It may be really nice keychain (look at my other keychains), home decoration, cute ornament for your Christmas tree (if you choose suitable colors), you may hang it inside your car etc. Thank you for subscribing my channel and blog, watching the tutorials and sending the photos of your finished projects :) All the best!


Tutorial is available on YouTube - link below (I recommend you to crochet with me)


- Yarns (you may use the yarn you like that is suitable for crochet hook 2 mm, if you want to obtain the size approx. 6 cm).
One skein of each color is enough
I use:
  • Amisia yellow - bought in Ami-Crafts shop on Allegro (similar in gauge to YarnArt Jeans) for the moon
  • YarnArt Jeans blue (in the tutorial red) - for the hat
  • Alize Softy white - for hat edging
- crochet hook 2 mm
- black thread for embroidering the sleeping eyes
- pink for embroidering the cheeks (you may blush the cheek)
- tapestry needle for sewing and embroidering
- stuffing;
- scissors.


MR - magic ring
sc - single crochet
dc - double crochet
ch - chain
sl st - slip stitch
inc - increase, 2 sc in one stitch
dec - decrease, sc2tog
rnd - rnd
bs - bobble stitch


Rnd 1: 6 sc in MR [6]
Rnd 2: 6 inc [12]
Rnd 3: 12 inc [24]
Rnd 4: (1 sc, inc) x 12 [36]
Rnd 5: (1 sc, inc, 1 sc) x 12 [48]
Rnd 6: (3 sc, inc) x 12 [60]
Rnd 7: (2 sc, inc, 2 sc) x 12 [72]
Rnd 8: (5 sc, inc) x 12 [84]
Rnd 9: 84 sc [84]

Cut the yarn, leaving a tail for sewing (you may cut more yarn and use it for making the nose).
Fold in half and sew (the way of sewing is shown in the tutorial).

Below you see the seam in contrasting red color:

Add the stuffing as you go through next stitches, before you close the moon opening.

HAT with jingle bell

Rnd 1: 3 sc in MR [3]
Rnd 2: 3 inc [6]
Rnd 3: 6 sc [6]
Rnd 4: inc, 5 sc [7]
Rnd 5: inc, 6 sc [8]
Rnd 6: inc, 7 sc [9]
Rnd 7: inc, 8 sc [10]
Rnd 8: inc, 9 sc [11]
Rnd 9: inc, 10 sc [12]
Rnd 10: inc, 11 sc [13]

Cut the yarn, work invisible finish.

Change to Alize Softy white for crocheting the edging.
Rnd 11: 13 sc [13]

Sew the jingle bell to the hat and the hat to the head (front seam is between rnds 5-6).
You may embroider a few stars on the hat with gold/silver thread.


Insert the hook between rnds 2-3 and make bobble stitch (bs):
ch4, 4 dc not finished. Pull the yarn through 5 loops on the hook, ch1 to secure the bobble. 

Then insert the yarn tail in MR and secure (I show you how to make it in my tutorial). Shape the nose if it's needed.

Embroider eyes (in rnds 4-5) and cheeks (in rnd 5).

The Sleepy Moon is finished!
Do you prefer red or blue? :)
