Crochet Pattern: Peas in a PodBy Emilee Gettle – 2 Comments
|I absolutely despised peas growing up and had more fun mashing them on my plate than anything else. However, when I discovered what they tasted like fresh out of the pod, I changed my mind. They are the perfect garden snack, wrapped in a little pod package. This week I crocheted my own peas in a pod. I used wool yarn, which can easily be felted too. This project would make a great pin. However, your children or grandchildren might claim them for their play food collection. I’m thinking of felting a few of these pods onto a wool purse too!|

Use a yarn needle to whip stitch the two pod pieces together, leaving an opening for the peas. Place each pea inside the pod and use a needle and thread to secure them in place.
