You made have heard (or read) that my family loves sausage! My kids wanted to help but clearly couldn't with raw pork involved so I came up with this solution. Now they can help make and cook sausage.
Crochet Sausage Links Pattern
Hook: US F5/3.75mm
Yarn: Worsted weight. I used Red Heart Eco-Ways in Cinnabar.
Step 2: 6 Single Crochet (SC) in second stitch from the hook, join with slip stitch to create circle (6 stitches)
Step 3: 2 SC in each stitch (12 stitches)
Step 4: 1 SC in next stitch, 2 SC in next stitch - repeat around (18 stitches)
Step 5: SC each round until you get the desired length of sausage (18 stitches)
Step 6: To start decrease: 1 SC in next stitch, Single Crochet 2 stitches together (SC2tog), repeat around (12 stitches)
Step 7: SC2tog around (6 stitches)
Step 8: SC2tog around (3 stitches)
Step 9: Chain 5
Repeat Steps 2 - 9 until you have the desired number of sausage links.
I took some stash yarn and tied little bows since in my mind that is how sausages look, even though we personally don't make sausage like that.
