Avocuddler Crochet Pattern
Who wants to avocuddle?! This is probably my most favorite item I have EVER made! The Avocuddler is a BIG, squishy pillow in the shape of an avocado! It is tremendously cuddly and you will not be able to fight the urge to snuggly up next to it!
I designed the Avocuddler crochet pattern as a birthday gift to my 11 year old step daughter, and she LOVES it! I think the best part about the Avocuddler is that you can make it for ANYONE! It’s a great cuddle buddy for kids younger and older, teens, and adults! This will be a must make for Christmas and birthday gifts!
I used Bernat Blanket Yarn, which is incredibly soft and squishy, and it also adds a nice texture to the pillow. I also added safety eyes and a smile to my pillow for a bit of extra fun, but you can easily omit that step if you want a faceless avocado! This pattern is beginner friendly, works up SO fast, and only uses 1 stitch! So let’s get making!

Tie off yarn leaving long 24″ tail. Place pit onto the front panel centered between rows 7 & 24. Use stitch markers to keep the pit in place and take your yarn needle and sew the pit onto the front panel. Be sure to stuff with fiber fill before sewing the pit up completely. When you reach the end, secure the yarn on the back with a few knots.
Optional: Place eyes centered between rows 32 & 33 and about 6 STs apart. Using the 6″ strand of black, medium weight yarn, make a “V” shape between the eyes to create a smile.
Back Panel (GoGo Green)
Repeat the instructions of the Front Panel but do not tie off yarn at the end.
Place the front and back panels together so that they line up, and the face on the front panel is on the outside. Working in both panels, SC the pieces together. You will work 1 SC in each ST around for a total of 110 SC’s. Be sure to stuff with fiber fill before stitching it up completely. Tie off and weave in end.
