Pencil Free Crochet Pattern

2020 has been a strange year for students of all ages, from kindergarten to college. Many students feel like they've missed on something, especially those who graduated this year.

I like to think 2020 has also taught us something: how fun is to see our friends, how important teachers are to us, how much we love our grandparents, and that we should never take anything for granted.

If you know a kid who's been missing going to school and playing with friends, this amigurumi pencil is the perfect, small gift!

Here's the FREE pattern!


YARN: Medium Weight Cotton Yarn (Lace 4) in Pink, gray, Yellow, Beige and Black

OTHER MATERIALS: Polyester Fiber Filling; Yarn Needle
