Hello, I don't know about you but sometimes I feel like just being a lazy crocheter....and creating a fairly easy pattern. So I whipped up this little gal in a couple days, and thought I would share it with you.
It would of just been one day to complete her but I started her really late a few nights ago and was to sleepy to finish her. Plus I decided to give her hair as well which was a little time consuming.
You can enter my draw for a chance to win her in my previous post....here!Okay on with the pattern!Oh wait...actually I wanted to share how my notes look when I am creating an ami, now there are not many notes because this is a very basic pattern but here is a quick pic of my process when making an ami.
For this pattern you can use scrap yarn ...I used part of a green ball of worsted weight yarn and a 3.5 hook.But really you can use any yarn or hook the only thing that will happen is the size of your critter will change.
hdc~half double crochet
sl st~slip stitch
sk st~skip stitch
Monster Pattern~ Body and Legs:
Sc in second ch from hook and the remaining chains
Ch 1 turn sc across (do this round 5 times in total)
Now place your stitch marker,you will now be single crocheting around the entire piece like single crocheting in the round
Sc around the entire piece (do this round 20 times in totaln and move the st marker up with every round)
Now sc to the middle of the back of you ami, you can choose either side that is up to you.
Skip the next 33 st, and then you will sc in the next 32 stitches (this will be the first leg)
Now sc x 120, place your stitch marker
(Invedec, skip st) for the entire round
Invdec around, fo and sew in ends
Insert hook and pull up loop on other side of the body...ride beside the leg you were just working on
Then sc x 31 around
Sc x 120, place your st marker
(invdec,skip st) around
Invdec around, fo and weave in ends
Sc in second ch from hook and remaining chains
Ch 1, turn, sc across (do this round 11 times in total)
Fo leave a long tail
Arms (make 2)
6 sc in ring
2 sc in each st
Sc x 35
(sc, ivdec) x 6, fo leave a long tail
Now you sew the face on your stuffie....weave in all ends stuff him. Add your eyes, maybe some hair a bow or flower or whatever you want. This is a basic pattern but could be changed into maybe a kitty just add ears. It's nice and easy when you don't feel like doing a big pattern. I hope you like her.
