I agree with the previous commenter. I do not like peeps. They are pure sugar. They did some experiments with them on TV and it was scary. They didn't melt like marshmallows. Imagine them in your stomach? But these are adorable. No sugar yet very sweet. Plus they won't get eaten. You can give them to kids or adults to keep. Thank you, a peep I can finally like!

Im going to say right up front that I cant stand the nasty little things, and the only proper way to consume marshmallow is toasted at a campfire. That said, I would be very happy to find a few of these in my Easter Basket. These would also make nice baby toys since the features are embroidered onto the face.

Just did the body, first crochet project in 40 years. How is yarn attached to body for head

I made dozens of these last Easter, they were a huge hit. BLO means back loop only, they work up really fast.

I think BLO means "back loop only". Cute little peep!

What does BLO mean in the pattern.
