Free Doll Ottoman Crochet Pattern
Poor Ken is being pushed over by Barbie. Haha, but that’s life for you, sometimes we do the pushing when we don’t mean to, and sometimes we get pushed around by those who don’t mean to…. and I didn’t mean for the picture to come out that way. I didn’t see it when I took the pic, and was too lazy to go back later and redo it. I think it’s kinda cute though. :)
Anyhow, I’ve been meaning to publish this for a while now, but wasn’t sure about it as I’m using a rare lid that most of you might not have. I got it off an empty matcha can, and in my mind it is so perfect for this. (For those who don’t know, I’m totally addicted to matcha. It’s my brain food, my antioxidant, my coffee substitute and my tea at all hours of the day. If you’d like to try some for yourself, Google it online or visit your nearest specialty tea store. There are some brands that you just don’t buy, but Teavana has my favorite.)
The lid measures 6cm across the diameter and 1.5cm high. I looked in my cupboards to find a similar lid, but couldn’t find one at the moment. If you can’t find one you might be able to adjust the pattern for a different size lid.
And, feel free to crochet this in any colors. I worked one in a single color, and the other in a two-toned color. As you can see, I didn’t do my color change very good. For a cleaner look, use a standing crochet stitch to begin each round instead of carrying the yarn.
Also, this pattern has not been tested by anyone other than me, so please let me know if you run into any problems.
