These little guys are a dietitian’s best friend. No calories! You can make a whole group of them for a cute little Halloween centerpiece. They are quick to work up. You can make one in 30-40 minutes.
I think this would be a great project to help your daughter or granddaughter learn to crochet. My 9 year old has been begging to learn. I think I might help her make a couple for her room. She loves to decorate her dressing for each holiday and season!
Finished project is approx 3 inches tall.

- In plain English, I don’t mind if you share the pdf pattern, as long as you leave my copyright and link to this blog. Please do not alter the pattern in anyway. You do not have permission to sell the pattern or any items made from it, but feel free to make as many as you want yourself or for gifts.
Note: I previously shared this pattern over at Miss Organic’s Kitchen, but I am trying to focus solely on food over there. So I am moving all my craft patterns here.
