This pattern is available for free.

So… Covid-19 is putting the almost everyone on this planet in a very difficult position. Personally, I’m stuck at home and the only work I can get done is making more crochet designs… Lots of art exhibitions I would participate in have been cancelled so I decided to focus on crochet for the next couple weeks.

To encourage people to stay at home, I have made a free crochet pattern of a corona virus. Stay at home to stay safe, sit out quarantine and while doing so: don’t get bored and make a crochet plushie. Please do not go outside if you don’t have to, that’s the only way we can stop the spreading of this virus.

When made with a 4mm crochet hook and worsted weight yarn, this virus will become about 14cm/6″ in diameter.
