This little cutie is ready to bring some holiday cheer into your life! He’s round, he’s a little bit waddle-y, and definitely hug-able! You can even make him without a hat, for all-year-’round hugs. Howie measures about 7.5 inches tall when completed.

Is this your first time doing the loop stitch? No worries! This is a great project to give it a try for the first time. Photo-instructions are provided in the pattern, and if you need additional help, watch our loop stitch video.

To complete this pattern, you will need:

  • size H (5 mm) crochet hook
  • 5 colors of worsted weight yarn (Ella Rae Classic is the brand used in the sample, less than a skein of each is required): white, black, blue, yellow and red
  • polyester stuffing
  • tapestry needle
  • two 12mm black animal eyes (available online from Suncatcher Eyes)

This is an easy level pattern, and the pattern contains progress photos!
