Crochet Marshmallow – Free Pattern

Who doesn’t love marshmallows? They’re so soft and squishy and tasty. Ever since making my own marshmallows, I’ve been in love with them, and ever since I starting thinking about designing crochet patterns, I’ve been inspired by them. Here is the simplest pattern ever for a sweet crochet marshmallow. It even comes in two sizes: large and mini.


Crochet Marshmallow Pattern

Materials:

  • Sport yarn: 7 yards 10 inches for the large marshmallow, 3 yards 20 inches for the small marshmallow
  • Hook E (3.5mm)
  • Yarn needle
  • Stuffing; you can use fiber fill, yarn scraps, or some other suitable option. I used fibers I shaved off a faux fur trim when I made my Christmas dress

Stitches used:

  • Ch – chain
  • Sc – single crochet
  • Sl st – slip stitch

Gauge: 6 sc across 6 rows = 1″ x 1″

The final measurements of the marshmallows are according to this gauge. If your stitches are looser, your marshmallow will end up larger, like the pink one in the picture.
