Hello, hi and welcome back! I'm excited to share my Popsicle Garland free crochet pattern! These are so quick and easy to whip up and make the perfect summer party décor! These sweet little crochet popsicles also make adorable appliques or coasters!
This popsicle crochet pattern is comprised of the popsicle base, base border, popsicle stick which is stitched onto the bottom of the base, the rosy cheeks which are crocheted separately and attached to the base with a tapestry needle, and the eyes. The finished popsicle measures approximately 3 inches wide by 5.5 inches tall. You could easily make a larger popsicle by using larger yarn and a larger crochet hook.
