Supplies:
4mm crochet hook, 4/Medium weight yarn in Brown, Grey, White, and Red. 6mm safety eyes or small black beads for eyes. Black and red embroidery thread, stuffing, tapestry needle, and scissors.

Additional Information:
Difficulty: Easy
We start by making the box first. The box is made with a total of 10 pieces, then we sew them together. You can create “bobbles” when color changing on the box so you can have an easier time crocheting and changing colors. “Bobbles” are separate small balls of yarn used in separate sections of color changes. The chicken nuggets are made in two pieces, then crocheted together. You can crochet on arms and legs if desired.

Box:

This box has a total of 10 pieces. 5 pieces are for the top of the box and 5 pieces are for the bottom of the box. We start by making the pieces for the top of the box, pinning them together as we create each piece. After creating the top 5 pieces, we create the bottom 5 pieces and pin those together.

  1. I’m sorry but for the top of the box how do you switch the colors for the first round?

    1. Hi Natalie! What I do is chain 4 in white. Then yarn over with red and pull it through the loop on your hook. This will make a 5th white chain and now you can start making the red chains. So yarn over and chain in red for the next 14 chains. Now yarn over with white and pull through the loop in your hook. This will make the 15th red chain and now we continue on with the white yarn on our hook. Yarn over and chain for the next 5 chains. This will complete Row 1 on the top box!

      When continuing to change colors in the following rows, you can carry your yarn through the crochet piece until you need to use that color again. (So if you were crocheting in white then changed to red, just crochet holding the white yarn along your red crochet piece and you will be crocheting the white yarn into the red section. A little confusing but there are video tutorials that show how to do this better than I can explain haha 😂)

      I always just cut the yarn, leaving a tail for weaving in, then continue on with the new color. Note that doing it this way means you’ll have a lot more ends to weave in!

      Hope this helps! Please let me know what else you may need help with 🙂

      1. Ok thank you this does help. I was confused on how I couldn’t see any knots and their tails.

  2. If I made something using this pattern, could I sell the product if I credit you for the pattern? I love the cute design!
