A few weeks back the family and I took a trip to Hershey, PA so I thought it would be fun to make some little crochet kisses to commemorate our trip. Aren’t they sweet? Work up this crochet kiss pattern to make up some sweets of your own …

Fasten off leaving a tail of about 6 inches.
Using a tapestry needle, weave tail through stitches to close. I prefer Planet June’s method for finishing off amigurumi items. You can see her tutorial here.
Top your kiss off with a little label. You can create your own with a marker and paper or ribbon or you can print out mine here.
This Hershey’s kiss is so cute nice could you email me on how you attached your printable on here as just made my first one and want to make a bunch more for valentines day next week for my daughter and family also do you think it would look good in brown for the kiss about how much fiberfill did ya put in kiss and are you suppose to put fill at the top tip of the kiss thanks god bless you
Hi Pat 🙂 I eased my paper through the stitches to secure it. You could probably place a drop of glue too if you need some extra support.

From the beginning this shape was for pee. Kiss in Swedish =pee. Look at this site! The brown thing is the “big” thing you make.
What grey did you use for the kiss?

i love love love love love this. I’m gonna give it a try.Thank you for sharing! 🙂
Is the “kisses” ribbon you have in the pictured, just pieces of paper? It is hard to tell. I want to use your printable but I don’t know how to print on ribbon. Is there another tip you can share?
Hi Melanie 🙂 Nope, the kisses part is actually just paper from my printer. Hope that helps!
My cousin works at Hershey and she will be getting this for her birthday. I love it and she will too. Thanks so much.
Oh how fun! Hope she likes it 🙂
That is amazing and you are truly talented! I can barely make a wash cloth!!! So want to make this though! Now I definetly have a reason to learn to crochet better! Thanks and again OMG so cute! U R awesome!!
You are truly talented!
Thank you so much! That is very sweet of you to say 🙂
Can you scale this version into a larger, huggable pillow version? I think this paired with some circular “hard candy” pillows would be so sweet! (bad pun intended) =)
That sounds like a fun idea! I am sure it could be done. It would take some fiddling to figure it out though 🙂
You’re so stinkin’ clever! How fun!
Could this be converted into a baby hat? These are just darling and I had a friend make that comment. So stinking cute!!
