10 Grimace Crochet Patterns to Celebrate His Birthday

In case you haven’t heard, it’s Grimace’s birthday. This purple Gemini is out here celebrating with a bright purple shake and a weird social media trend. We couldn’t be more proud. So, some Grimace crochet patterns are in order.

While it’s unclear exactly who or what Grimace is, we do know that he loves milkshakes and is Ronald McDonald’s bestie. Is heĀ really a sentient tastebud? We’ll never know.

If you’re like us (unhinged), you may want to get in the celebratory spirit and commemorate this fake entity’s birthday.

Here are 10 Grimace-adjacent crochet patterns to get into the birthday spirit.

Happy birthday, Grimace!

McDonald’s tries to market Grimace as a lovable, huggable guy. But…there’s something slightly creepy about his vibe. Maybe it’s the fact that his name is “Grimace.” Whatever the reason, it’s best to just embrace it.

This “Eye Scream” crochet pattern will help you make a creep-tastic ice cream keychain that Grimace would be proud of.

The Hamburglar Plushie by HeyCanYouCrochetMeA

If you know anything about Grimace, you know that he is an original McDonald’s character alongside the infamous Hamburglar. In fact, Grimace originally debuted as “Evil Grimace.” Like the Hamburglar, he would steal milkshakes from honest McDonald’s customers. Rude.

In honor of Grimace’s vaguely rebellious roots, here’s a detailed crochet pattern to make your own Hamburglar doll.
