My kids are suddenly into playing doctor…it might have something to do with their new interest in the show Doc McStuffins Little brother calls this game “time for your check-up.” I found a doctor kit for $3 at Toys-R-Us but it was missing one of the most important items… the band-aids! A crochet version was easy to make and worked perfectly. You can pretty much make these in a variety of sizes just by crocheting different widths and lengths of single crochet stitches.
– Worsted weight yarn. I used Loops & Threads Impeccable (sold at Michaels) in soft taupe, white, and a bit of red if you want to stitch on a heart.
– Size G Crochet Hook
– Tapestry Needle
– Velcro sticky back circles
– My First Doctor Kit
– ArtMinds Wood Box (found at Michaels in the wood crafts section)
Ch = Chain
SC = Single Crochet
Band-Aid Crochet Pattern:
Chain 4, SC in second chain from hook and in last two chains, chain 1, turn
Row 2-14: SC in each stitch across, chain 1, turn (3 SC)
Feel free to continue SC rows to make longer.
After last row continue to SC around the edges. Join, fasten off and weave in ends.
To make thinner/wider band-aids, start with more or less chains.
White Band-Aid Gauze Pattern:
Same pattern as above except only make about 3 rows.
