Carla the Goose Free Crochet Pattern

Updated: Jan 18, 2023



Welcome back to my blog my crafty friends!


The super bulky Re-Spun Thick and Quick yarn by Lion Brand Yarn is perfect to work large size project in just no time...like today's free pattern – a sweet Goose named Carla!


The Head, the Body and the Feet of the goose are worked in one single piece.

Only the Beak is worked separately and then sewn to the body.

If you want to add a romantic touch to this already adorable project, have fun creating the beanie and the collar in the delicate Wisteria color!


Perfect as a home decor to add to any rooms, it can also work as door stopper - just add some heavy filling like rice or plastic beads!
