Hello, hi & welcome back! I'm excited to share this adorable pencil amigurumi free crochet pattern with you! This pattern works up quickly and makes the perfect handmade teacher appreciation gift idea!
This pencil is worked in continuous rounds with the eyes and stuffing added before completion. The finished project measures approximately 4" tall. You could easily make a larger pencil by increasing your yarn and hook sizes.
