Crayons Free Crochet Pattern

Updated: Oct 19, 2019



As kids, we all learn how to communicate, give meaning and share emotions using colors. Coloring helps the kids to develop both their intellectual and motor skills

...but most of all provides them with endless hours of fun!!!


Why not introducing your little one to the amazing world of colors with this fun crochet project? These crocheted crayons are very soft and safe toys for babies!

They can also beautifully work as attachments for a colorful crib mobile!


So, set your imagination free and use all the color and size combinations to create something unique for you and your kids!






“We could learn a lot from crayons, some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while other bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box.”








Here's the FREE pattern! Enjoy!
