Crochet Musical Note Tutorial

Crochet Musical Notes

After some experimentation (aka. unraveling a few failed attempts), here’s my version of a crochet musical note! :) The pattern is relatively simple, but I included some pictures for clarity on the last steps. Gauge is not necessary, since the size of the musical note is determined by the weight of the yarn used. The thicker the yarn, the bigger the note:

Fingering weight yarn = 3 1/4″ long (size of the green note in the above picture)
Sport weight yarn = 3 1/2″ long (size of the blue and orange notes)
Worsted weight yarn = 3 3/4″ long (size of the pink note)

Abbreviations: chain (ch), single crochet (sc)

What You Need:

  • about 7 yards of yarn (worsted, sport, or fingering weights)
  • size F (3.75 mm) crochet hook

Pattern:

  1. Ch 3.
  2. Join with a slip stitch to the first chain. (forming a circle)
  3. 6 sc in the center. Join with a slip stitch to first sc. (6 sc)
  4. Ch 1, 2 sc in each stitch in the round. Join with a slip stitch to the starting chain (12 sc)
  5. Slip stitch in the first 4 stitches of the next round.
  6. Ch 15. (picture below)

  1. Couldn’t wrap my head around it yesterday, but now that I’ve gotten some sleep it actually turns out the way it should. Thank you so much for this, the instructions are clear, the pictures are really helpful, and the pattern is great.

    I’m going to make a rainbow colored mobile for a friend with things that she loves, and music happens to be one of those things so this is perfect.
