FREE Jumbo Hersey Kiss Pattern
You know those ridiculously huge Hersey Kisses you can get that weigh like, a pound? Those were the inspiration behind this pattern! How else would you show your love for someone, aside from a solid pound of chocolate? There really isn't any other way... unless you crochet it instead!
This pattern is perfect for beginners because there isn't any sewing! You just need the following supplies:
Worsted weight yarn in white and any color of choosing
3.5 mm crochet hook
Fiber fill stuffing
sc: single crochet
HDC: half double crochet
inv dec: invisible decrease
BLO: back loop only
I always use a Clover hook when I crochet, and my favorite yarn is Impeccable Loops and Thread from Micheals... there's so many colors to choose from!
Starting with a long tail, ch 13 then HDC in the second back bump from the hook and in all remaining bumps. Fasten off and leave at least a 4" tail.
