If you’ve seen my Great Pumpkin Pocket Pillow, you probably saw a cute little Snoopy applique peaking over the pocket on the backside. Well, I figured I needed a crochet Woodstock to be his buddy! These are crochet appliqués inspired by the peanuts characters and they go perfectly with these holiday Peanuts board books: The Great Pumpkin, Be Thankful, and Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown!
I put my cute little Woodstock on a brimmed hat This is just a basic DC hat with extra rounds of DC stitches at the bottom so I could flip it up for a brim. I will post a pattern for the hat soon!
I also plan to have a video tutorial on my YouTube Channel of the Woodstock applique as well so stay tuned!
