Condom Crochet


I recently joined www.ravelry.com (username: Ungulate) and was understandably perplexed at the lack of crochet patterns for making condoms. This is my bold attempt to rectify the situation. This pattern is free, which is not to say that I would be at all pleased if you were to sell it or sell anything made with it. If you find yourself saying to yourself "but this pattern must have taken so many hours of research and development, I really must find some form of compensation", donate a few quid to an AIDS charity.


Crochet in a spiral if you want to make your life easy (amigarumi style).

R1: Ch 2, 6 sc in second ch from hook.
R2-4: Sc 6.
R5: 2 sc in each sc around. (12 sts)
R6: *Sc 1, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. (18 sts)
R7: *Sc 2, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. (24 sts)
R8-10: Sc 24.
R11: *Sc 2, dec 1*, rep 6 times. (18 sts)
R12-29: Sc 18.
R30: Through front loops only, *Sc 1, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 9 times. (27 sts)
Slip stitch (to flatten out the kink) then fasten off and weave in ends.

I'd love to see some variations on this pattern! There are all sorts of disgraceful possibilities.

  3. Well I never! I just conceived crocheting condoms for a project in Warwick University, for their Sexual Health Awareness Week. My prototype is rather more weird (got loads of holes in it), I tend to free-crochet if u like. This looks fab though. Do you mind me using your pattern for my workshops that will produce condoms for the project? Btw, the project is linked to World Aids day.

  5. I am really in need of a hook holder. And my boyfriend will be getting one for Christmas. And probably everyone in my family that it is even vaguely appropriate to give one to. Thanks for sharing this.
