Gingerbread Man


I made the Gingerbread Man pattern for a friend who was just starting out in crochet and prefers 2D patterns. It is a simple pattern which is easy to follow. 


You will need:
  • Yarn needle 
  • Soft toy filling
  • 4mm crochet hook
  • DK Yarn
    • Approx. 10g each
Stitches and abbreviations used:
(I am from England but use US crochet terms)
  • MC - Magic circle/ring (sc unless otherwise specified)
  • Ch - Chain 
  • SC - Single crochet 
  • Inc - Increase stitch (2 single crochets into one stitch)
  • Dec - Decrease stitch (single crochet 2 stitches together)
  • ST - Stitch      
  • SLST - Slip stitch 
  • R – Round or Row
  • FO - finish off

Other things to note....
  • This is worked in continuous rounds. It is helpful to use a stitch marker to keep track
  • The number in ( ) at the end of each round indicates the total stitch count for that round
  • *  * indicates repeated series of stitches
  • Use invisible decreases for a neater finished product
  • Stitches in [ ]  are worked into one stitch
  • Remember to stuff the product as you work
