Lenny Crochet Pattern

Happy September!

This month’s mini tier pattern is Lenny from Toy Story. I had fun making Lenny and, in this pattern, did a stitch that I have not done before. A triple decrease. It is the same as an invisible decrease where you loop the two front loops and join them into one stitch, but instead you loop 3 front loops into one. In the beginning I was trying to figure out a way to do it without this stitch because I don’t think it is a stitch that many people would have used before, but ultimately, I went with what gave me the best results. Apart from the legs everything else in this pattern is straight forward.

Lenny is crocheted and assembled in the same way as my Cogsworth – with cardboard and crocheting pieces together to create a “box”. He also has wire for the legs so that he can stand up unaided. For the eyes I used the same technique as I did for chip so that the sides had some added strength.

Everything on Lenny apart from the black and white for his eyes has been crocheted. There weren’t many opportunities for mixed media with this project, but I am still very happy with how he turned out.

Lenny measures approximately 4 inches tall, 5 inches wide and 3.5 inches deep.
