Crochet Onigiri

Onigiri is a yummy Japanese snack made from rice and a variety of other ingredients. You can make your own edible onigiri with this recipe and tutorial.

Inspired by a bunch of cute onigiri food art images on Pinterest, I felt the need to create my own!

I found this free pattern by Nathalie Nuisement and had to make it. I used Red Heart Supersaver yarn in white and black and a 2.75 mm crochet hook to make these onigiri.

Here is the completed pattern before I added my own ears.

These are the onigiri after I added my own ears and felt details! I embroidered the nose and mouth with brown thread and attached the felt details with E-6000.

Here are the ear patterns:

I added a strip of ‘nori’ with black yarn using the original crochet pattern for the onigiri bear.
