I made these Legos for who else but my nephew who is obsessed with Legos right now! I even discovered they can be a great way to teach kids how to juggle! They are really light so it’s easy to throw them in the air and catch. These are a great little gift for any Lego lover and besides being used for juggling they can work as mini bed pillows and more…

Could these made larger by using more stitches to make a bigger pillow? My grandsons love legos and I thought this would be cute to make a pillow for them for Christmas. Thanks.

Sahrit says:

Hey Gail!

I sure think so! You would probably need to multiply the sts by at least 4 by my guess and then when you make the piece make sure that you still have the original shapes (4 Rectangles, two squares, and then for the crochet circles you’ll need to keep increasing your rounds first so it’s the size you like and then work some even rnds to make the circle shape.

Let us know how it goes! and feel free to post you pictures here or on my fb page: eye for cuteness

All the best,
Sahrit 🙂

[…] Legos: This is actually a combination of knitting and crochet; the crochet produces the little Lego “knobs.” The pattern creates small plush Legos that can be used as is for very young children, as small decorative pillows, or as for the designer, to teach a child to juggle. […]
