Crochet Oscar the Grouch Inspired Trash Can

A Crochet Oscar the Grouch Inspired Trash Can is the boy version to my Crochet Cupcake with Cherries on Top that I recently just published.

My friend Michelle from Shell’s Yarncicles found my cupcake pattern and immediately got to work on making a couple of them. As she was making them she got the idea of some other versions, one of which was Crochet Oscar the Grouch. Check out Michelles Cookie Monster HERE.

I was going to use fun fur for oscar but I didn’t because I didn’t have a green colour I was happy with. Also, I know that a lot of people dislike working with eyelash yarns so I kept it simple.

There were some other ideas mentioned as well but for now, Here’s a Crochet Oscar the Grouch Inspired trash can for the boys!

Yarn:

Approximately 4 oz of Caron Simply Soft Yarn in each colour, I used Dark Sage & Grey Heather
You will also need a few yards of worsted weight yarn in white, black and brown.

Hook: US H8/5.00mm


Supplies:

  • 4 buttons
  • I used the lid of a sour cream container that measures approximately 4.625″ in diameter.
  • I ended up adding 4 Dritz Sew-On Snaps Nickel Size 1 to the inside of the lid and oscars head to help the lid from lifting when using the handle, with the snaps and buttons even spaced out the lid stays on better.

Special Stitches:

Gauge:

Using one strand of worsted weight yarn – 3.75 hdc = 1″
Using 2 strands of worsted weight yarn – 3 hdc = 1″

Notes: It’s useful to use a stitch marker in the first stitch of each rnd. Do not join rnds unless specified.

Rnd 8:

Inserting lid into bottom of bag..

I used some black worsted weight yarn and sewed on the mouth, it does not need to be straight as oscars mouth when closed is sort of uneven.
