Crochet Moose – A Bitty Bumble

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Please read my disclosure for more info.

When my son was a preschooler, he loved to carry around little action figures he called his “guys”.  The memory of his chubby warm hand with a death grip on a “guy” just makes me smile.  Today, I’d like you to meet this Crochet Moose!crochet mooseThe crochet moose is the 2nd in a series I’m calling Bitty Bumbles.  Bitty Bumbles are small amigurumi (or stuffed toys).  In fact, the Bitty Bumbles remind me a bit of the “guys” of my son’s childhood.  The “guys” and my little guy had all kinds of adventures together.  And maybe a Bitty Bumble like this cute moose could be a guy for your little one.

Of course I think everyone might like a Bitty Bumble for herself.  I see them scattered in my office at work.  In front of my TV at home.  They might even be just the thing to tuck into a stocking at Christmas time.  They are little.  Cute.  And just fun.

  1. This is the cutest way I’ve seen antlers done. I love it. But In trying the antlers’ pattern.
    For the antlers,What does the “and across” mean in: ch 6
    R1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and across (5 sc)

    1. I’m glad you like the antlers! and across just means to continue to work the stitch across the remaining chains in that row.

      1. Oh of course. I’m sorry. Thank you so much. I got so excited to start, I’m pretty sure I jumped the gun, with the series so cute and this pattern especially. Haha

    2. After you’ve chained 6, you skip that first chain and put a sc stitch into the 2nd chain from your hook. Then you just keep crocheting one sc into each stitch until you reach the end. You should end up with 5 sc stitches. Hope this helps!

    1. Basically, after chaining 6 and putting sc stitches into each st after the 2nd ch, you’ll have 5 sc. In the next row (row 2), you will slip stitch into the first 2 stitches, and in the third stitch you will put 1sc, 1dc, a chain of 2, and a sl st. That’s it! Hope this helps!

  2. When I try to do the antlers, after round 2 my ends of the string are on opposite sides. Do I have to weave one end to the other so they end up on the sameness side to sew onto the body? I think I’m doing something wrong, please advise.

    1. Each antler forms a “Y” shape. So when you are done, you do have ends on different sides, but just weave those in and use one to sew the antler to the head.

  3. Hello! Thank you so much for sharing this adorable pattern.
    I am however struggling to understand round two of the antlers. Could you help me?

    “R2: sl st in next 2 st, in next stitch work: (sc, dc, ch2, sl st). Fasten off.”
    Do i turn the work and crochet back the way i came, or do I round the work and crochet on the other side? And then i wonder where to fasten the last slip stitch?
    I have tried different variations, but I cant get them to look like they do on your picture.

    1. In R1 you’ve single crocheted across the starting chain. For R2, you turn, work a sl st into each of the next 2 st. Then in the 3rd st you work (sc, dc, ch 2, sl st). Fasten off and leave the remaining stitches unworked. Hope that helps clarify.
