How To Crochet An Amigurumi Crescent Moon Kawaii Cuddler Pillow. Our Free Crescent Moon Crochet Pattern Works Up Quickly!

Hi friend! We’re so excited to share our free Crescent Moon crochet pattern Kawaii Cuddler® with you as part of the 2021 Softie Crochet Along. This is the 4th Annual Softie Crochet Along with CAL Central Crochet!

Ten of your favorite crochet designers have joined hooks to bring you free crochet patterns for softies (including amigurumi, dolls, stuffies, and more) stuffed with Fairfield Poly-Fil or Poly Pellets. Every Monday from April 5 through June 7, 2021, a different participating designer will share a free crochet pattern for a softie. Be sure to click the image below to read all the details for this fun crochet along!

Our Crescent Moon Kawaii Cuddler® joins our other Outdoor friends Rainbow Kawaii Cuddler®, Sunshine Kawaii Cuddler®, and Mushroom Kawaii Cuddler®.

This is a beginner level pattern. Our finished project is 10″ x 11″ in diameter using the recommended hook size. You are welcome to go up or down a hook size to create a different dimension. You can even hold two pieces of yarn together with a larger hook to create a giant cuddler. The sky is the limit!

If you’ve never worked one of our Kawaii Cuddler® patterns, they are geared towards beginners. You will work two flat pieces and single crochet them together to finish the piece. Even if you’ve never been able to crochet from a pattern before, we’re confident you can create with a 3amgracedesigns pattern. We encourage you to join our Facebook Group where we remain active helping with questions! We love passing our love for the craft on to others!

We hope you enjoy making your very own Crescent Moon! We can’t wait to see your creativity. When you complete one, please post it in our Facebook group or tag us on Instagram #3amgracedesigns. We love seeing your work!
