How to crochet eyes
Add Eyes Made From Crochet Thread to Toys (Comstock/Comstock/Getty Images)

If you like to crochet animals and dolls, make crochet eyes yourself instead of buying ready-made plastic ones. Eyes made out of yarn or crochet thread lend a more realistic look and blend in better with a crocheted toy. If you have a lot of scrap yarn, making crochet eyes is a great way to use it up. Eyes made from crochet thread are also child safe because they do not have plastic parts that can come off.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

Things you need

  • Black yarn or crochet thread
  • White yarn or crochet thread
  • Size H crochet hook

  1. 1

    Use black crochet thread and chain two stitches for the base of the eye.

  2. 2

    Make six single crochet stitches in the second chain stitch from the hook.

  3. 3

    Use white crochet thread and make two single crochet stitches into each stitch. Fasten off the yarn and cut away the excess.

Tips and warnings

  • Make more rounds if you want the eye to be larger.
  • For smaller eyes, fasten off the crochet thread after the first step.
