Free Pattern Friday – Happy Pills

Hey everyone – hope you’ve had a nice week!

This week I thought I’d bring you one of my old patterns from my former blog – the Happy Pills!


Happy Pills

I wrote this pattern back in 2010, put it on my blog and kind of forgot about it. It was only recently, when I was thinking of easy patterns for beginners, that I remembered it. So I decided to re-vamp it and publish it here 🙂

So here it is – the new and improved Happy Pills!

You Will Need:

  • Crochet Hook (I used 3mm)
  • Small amount of Double Knit/Light WW Yarn
  • 4mm Safety Eyes
  • Yarn/Embroidery Needle
  • Poly-fill Or Other Stuffing
  • Blusher or pink eye shadow (optional)


  • Ch – Chain Stitch
  •  Sc – Single Crochet
  • St/Sts – Stitch/Stitches
  • Slst – Slip Stitch
  • Inc (Increase) – 2 Sc into 1 St
  • Dec (Decrease) – 1 Sc across 2 Sts
  • ** – Marks a group of stitches to be repeated until the round is completed


  • No gauge, just keep your stitches nice and tight to avoid gaps in your work

    Finished Size

  • 7cm’s Tall (approx) using a 3mm hook

    Other Info

  • As this is amigurumi, work in continuous rounds; in a spiral. Don’t join at the end of a row; just keep going
  • I write my patterns in American terms, so Sc means Single Crochet; Dc means Double Crochet etc.
  • The number at the end of each round is the number of stitches you should now have


In White
1. Ch 2, Sc 6 into 2nd Ch from hook, or Magic Ring 6 (6)
2. Inc around (12)
3. *Sc, Inc* around (18)
4-11. Sc around (18)

*Change To Teal*

12. BLO – Sc around (18)
13-20. Sc around (18)

*Add Safety Eyes to top half of pill*

21. *Sc, Dec* around (12)
22. Dec around (6)
*Finish Off, Weave In End*

Apply a small amount of pink blusher/eye shadow to the cheek area

You might also want to ad a mouth to your pill at this point


Pretty simple, no?! I hope you have lots of fun with the pattern!! 😀
