Stan the Crochet Stick Man a Free Pattern

Last night I was helping the Squid with her homework. She had to draw children playing so she decided to give me a lesson on how to draw a stick figure. I had no idea! lol.

After learning how to draw a stick figure I asked her if she thought I could crochet one. “No! You can’t crochet a stick figure!?”

Challenge accepted.

The Squid helped me out and made sure the legs and arms were right. She informed me that the head went on top (again, I had no idea!).

Here you have (Squid approved) Stan the Crochet Stick Man!

When you’re done Stan will be a bit curly. You can fix this by blocking. Since I used acrylic I just pinned him to my ironing board and hit him with some steam from an iron. Do NOT touch him with the iron or he’ll melt!

I hope you enjoy Stan. I think he’d be cute sewn onto a sweater. You can starch him, put a magnet on his back and put him on the fridge. Or make a whole stick figure family!
