Ever since I was a kid I’ve been obsessed with Sesame Street and Muppets. I’m still obsessed and keep a growing collection of Sesame Street toys on my desk at work to remind me to go out and play as often as possible. So I scooted around on Etsy and found the best Sesame Street crochet patterns for you (and my future reference 😉 )
Everything you need to know about life you can learn on Sesame Street – kindness, empathy, compassion, literacy…you name it, they’ve got it covered. And beyond what you see on the show, Sesame Street Workshop and the Yellow Feather Fund are out there in the world making a difference for as many children as they can reach. I’m a proud card carrying, pin wearing member of the Yellow Feather Fund because I so believe in the magic that is Sesame Street.
So for the holidays, I wanted to round up a bunch of my favorite Sesame Street crochet patterns for you to make for the kiddos (or overgrown kiddos like me!) in your life. The world needs as many Kermits, Ernies, Berts, Grouches, Big Birds, and Grovers as possible!
Small details: There are a couple of knitting patterns mixed in here. Also, there are some other Muppets who don’t hang out on Sesame Street because why the heck not?
The photos here are just thumbnails, you definitely want to pop over to Etsy to check out all the additional photos! Click the link in the description to go to the pattern listing.
PS make sure to save the link to your favorite Sesame Street crochet patterns so you can find them again. 🙂

Smalls used to call Cookie Monster “La Cookah Nom Nom Nom” lol
We’re starting with him because he’s like, THE BEST. You can’t go wrong with cookies. Ever.
First up, Cookie Monster eating a cookie. Because of course.
Who wouldn’t want to curl up in a giant Cookie Monster hooded blanket? It’s probably like getting a fuzzy hug from a warm chocolate chip cookie!
If you have the sniffles, Cookie’s got your back. And your nose. Pro-tip: hide your cookies in a tissue box covered with a Cookie Monster tissue cover and nobody will ever find them!
Let’s stick with blue monsters for a second.
Hellloooooooooo everybodeeeeeeeee! It is I, your lovable furry pal Grover!
I’m going to just do the rest of this post in Sesame Street voices if that’s cool with you.
Bert and Ernie
This Bert sweater is perfect for anyone in your life who collects paper clips and loves pigeons. It’s a knitting pattern, but you could still use the chart in a crochet project.
Doin’ the pigeon. *coo coo* Doin’ the pigeon. *coo coo* Dancing a little smidgeon of the kind of ballet sweeps me away.
You can’t have a Bert sweater without an Ernie sweater. That’s against the law.
Every day when I make my way to the tubbie, I find a little fella who’s cute and yella and cuddly.
Rubba dubba duckie.
This crochet doll kit is probably as old as I am lol!
But seriously though, remember when nobody believed in Big Bird’s “imaginary friend” Snupfflekajoinsioagnngus.
Yeah. I had to look up how to spell Snuffleupagus.
You did too.
Would you believe I couldn’t dig up a crochet Elmo amigurumi pattern on Etsy? This hat is pretty awesome though!
Ok. So the Elmo’s World song annoys me. There. I said it.
It annoys you too though.
Elmo is still adorable.
Sticking with hats, this Zoe hat ROCKS!
Oooooooh I looooooveeee trash! Anything dirty or dingy or dusty. Anything ragged or rotten or rusty.
This Kermit is a knitting pattern, but I had to include it because it’s AWESOME.
But here’s a crochet pattern for you, which is also awesome!
It isn’t easy bein’ green.
Kermit newsboy caps are always in style.
Sesame Street Crochet Patterns – All Characters
This granny square Sesame Street blanket is adorbs!
These Sesame Street ornaments look like a really quick project you could easily complete by Christmas!
And how cute are these baskets?!?! They stack and I’m totally going to make something similar but more rectangular for my desk at work.
Fraggle Rock was my jam when I was a kid. The details on this Red crochet amigurumi are perfect!
And Boober. Fantastic hair, seriously!
I could write a whole separate post on Fraggles but right now I’m trying to keep it to Sesame Street.
Stay focused. Stay focused.
This cockroach, I mean what can you say? lol So lifelike.
It makes me so happy that a Zoot pattern exists in the world.
These next two patterns are like, my two favorite things about the Muppets universe. Central to the core of my being. If you get these two things, you get me.
If you’ve stuck with me this far, I bet you do. 🙂
I can’t wait to watch Emmet Otter’s Jugband Christmas on repeat this month! If you’ve never seen it, you have to have to have to go watch it, I promise you’ll love it!
Do do do do do.
Do do do do do.
Do do do do do, do do do, do do do, do do do do do do do do do do.
I got myself with that earworm as I typed it out. The things I put myself through for a blog post. Seriously.
There are SO MANY amazing crochet patterns on Etsy that I only had room to include a few of my favorites.
If you shop on Etsy I know you value the meaning and quality of gifting handmade items during the holiday season. But sometimes you just don’t have time to make All the Things yourself. *raises hand* I can relate to that!
If you’re looking at Sesame Street crochet patterns, you might appreciate this carefully curated gift guide for kids created by Etsy. There are tons of cute handmade gifts in the collection, everything from personalized crayons to custom painted family portrait wooden blocks.
Handmade gifts are treasured heirlooms whether you make them yourself or support other makers!
So if you’re a huge Sesame Street fan like I am, make sure you save this post on Pinterest because I’m going to be keeping it updated as I find new patterns!
And if you know of any awesome Sesame Street patterns (or have designed one yourself!), feel free to drop a link in the comments so I can include it in this post. I LOVE sharing your patterns on my blog and on the socials because I know how much time and dedication goes into creating them.
