Thumbs Up - Coaster, Applique - Crochet Pattern
Crochet in no time one of the most popular emoticons. Use it as coaster, applique, gift hanger, or just for fun. :)
I crocheted the thumbs quite tight, like Amigurumi. You can crochet more loosely, too. The thumb can be crocheted with any yarn weight.
All steps are explained in detail in words and pictures, so this pattern is suitable for beginners as well. This pattern contains 4 pages of crochet instructions and 6 pages of detailed step-by-step instructions.
Used techniques (US crochet terms): magic ring, chain, slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet & increases. The figures are crocheted in continuous rounds/spirals (only the button) as well as in closed rounds.
The thumbs got to be 12.5 x 12.5 cm & 9 x 9 cm tall (with 3.0 mm hook and DK yarn like Puppets Lyric 8/8 & 2.0 mm hook and sport weight yarn like Catania Originals).
You need it smaller or bigger? No problem! Simply use lighter or heavier yarn

I'm Stephanie, mother of three and I live with my family in Germany.
I've been crocheting for a while now. My kids got me to it. When there's no merchandising on the market for the current favorit comic figure you just have to make it yourself. That's how my first crocheted figure came to life. And with that my crochet addiction. :)
My patterns are for beginners and advanced crocheters alike. Stuffed with photos and detailed step-by-step instructions (I think you could call them photo-tutorials). I learned crocheting by myself and often found it quite frustrating to get stuck in the middle of a pattern just because some key-information was simply missing (as a beginner pretty much everything is key-information). That's why in my patterns almost everything is explained with words and photos.
I'm currently converting my older patterns into a new layout. Here on Makerist you can find all the patterns that already have the new layout plus all my new creations.
Have fun browsing through my patterns and happy crocheting!
