Notes

This crochet pancake pattern is made up of one flat circle and one flat circle with sides attached, then stuffed and whipstitched together. Crochet pancake pattern is made in the amigurumi method where you do not join rounds with a slip stitch unless specifically stated. The DMC Petra 3 yarn used is classed as a crochet thread, however it is one of the thicker crochet threads so you could easily substitute this for a 4ply cotton yarn.

Round 3 2tr into each st [16 sts]

Stuff the raspberry before weaving the yarn through the sts, pulling it tight as you go. This makes a bumpy shape, which looks more like a raspberry! Weave in any ends.
