How To Crochet A Toaster Pastry Amigurumi Cuddler Pillow. Our Toaster Pastry Crochet Pattern Is Created With Beginners In Mind & Works Up Quickly!
Hi friend! We’re so excited to share our Toaster Pastry crochet pattern Kawaii Cuddler® with you!
A few fun facts we learned about toaster pastries while researching our pattern:
- The idea for Pop-Tarts came from a refrigerated dog food invention. According to The Chicago Tribune, Post Co.’s pet-food division developed dog food called Gaines Burgers, “a novel concept because the dog food was semi-moist but didn’t have to be refrigerated — a convenience many humans coincidentally sought in their breakfast food.” Post took this innovative technology and put it towards “a fruit-filled pastry that could be shipped and stored without having to be refrigerated.”
- In the beginning there were only 4 flavors! When Kellogg’s first introduced the toaster pastry in 1964, it was unfrosted and came with four flavors: Apple Currant Jelly, Strawberry, Blueberry and Brown Sugar-Cinnamon.
- The United States actually ran out of Pop-Tarts in 1964. A Kellogg’s spokesperson said that, “In 1964, the first shipment of Pop-Tarts sold out in just two weeks.” Kellogg’s issued the above advert explaining its “Oops!” and soon the Pop-Tarts were back on shelves again.
This is a beginner level pattern. Our finished Toaster Pastry project is 11″ x 8″ 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.
