Lime Cuddler Crochet Pattern
The Lime Cuddler is a giant crochet lime! It uses Bernat Blanket Yarn to create a super soft and cuddly lime plushie!
Happy Friday Friends! I have a new, free crochet pattern for you all and it’s this adorable Lime Cuddler!
It measures approximately 7″ x 10″ and is made with Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn, making it super soft and cuddly! This Lime Cuddler is the 4th Cuddler pattern I have released, and I love them all so much! They are so cute and snuggly! Here are the other Cuddler patterns I have available: the Avocuddler, Avocuddler Mini, and the Cuddle Bee. Be sure to come back next week as I will be releasing another new design, the Lemon Cuddler, which is double the size of the Lime Cuddler! Are there any other Cuddler patterns would you like to see? Let me know in the comments!
Yarn & Supplies
I used Bernat Baby Blanket for my Lime Cuddler, but you can use any super bulky (6) weight yarn! The color I used is called Little Leaf and it’s a limited-edition colorway only available at Michaels for a short while! But don’t fret if you cannot get this color, it is almost identical to Lemon Lime which is a permanent colorway. Another color option if you want a darker shade of green is Go Go Green.
Want to make your Cuddler extra cute?! Add a face! I used 2 16mm black safety eyes that I found on Amazon. The set that I got comes with 30 pieces and range in size from 16mm-24mm so there are a lot of options to choose from! Best part, the set was only $7! Feel free to use any size or color of safety eyes, or you can even crochet eyes or make felt eyes! For the smile, you only need a short strand of black medium weight yarn, so dig through your stash or scrap pile, and use what you have on hand!
Follow Along With The Video Tutorial on YouTube!
The Lime Cuddler works up fast and is beginner friendly! It has minimal shaping and uses only the single crochet and single crochet two together stitches. Check out the video tutorial on my YouTube Channel for step by step visual instructions!
If you’re ready to get started, let’s head over to our supply list and let’s get making!

Gauge is not really important, but you can follow this gauge pattern if you want your Cuddler to turn out the same size as mine!
