Pocket Baby Alien

Pocket Baby Alien is small but mighty and quiet but wise. He’s ready to tag along with you on whatever adventures come your way. 

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner

The pattern is written in U.S. crochet terms, complete with clear instructions and  pictures to help you along the way. Pocket Baby Alien is crocheted in continuous spirals without joining the rounds. I suggest using a stitch marker or different color yarn to keep track of each round. Pocket Baby Alien is crocheted in worsted weight yarn and is approximately 4 inches tall.  Be aware that the final size may vary depending on the yarn and hook size used. Gauge is not particularly important, just be consistent with the tension you are using. And most importantly, have fun!
