HAIR

In Fuzzy Yellow

Take a piece of yarn and measure the crown of your dolls head. Set this aside, you will use this to make sure you make enough hair.

Using the hair color, wrap the yarn around an item the same width as you want the length of your hair to be. (I used my iphone). These wraps should be as long on the phone as your set aside piece of hair. The more wraps you do, the thicker the hair.

Then using the same yarn, SC along the spine of your item catching 3-4 pieces of yarn at a time. (This secures the hair). Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing.

Cut the hair at the other end.

Lay chain on head with hair covering face and tack down. Flip hair to the back of the head and start tacking down sections. Leave some free. Using the Sharpie, Make the roots black.

Cheetara – Free Crochet Pattern

Crochet Cheetara Doll

New Year, Old Pattern.

I’m trying to make typing patterns more of a goal than it has been in the past.

If you follow me on Instagram you know I have been painting and it is taking a lot of time. Plus I was inundated with toy plushies for Christmas orders.

Now, I am working on a fantastic custom order based off of Kevin the Bacon Scarf. Stay tuned for more updates.

Did I mention, I’m also opening a wine bar and patio. Needless to say typing patterns has not been a priority. I’m trying to fix that.

As I have said before, it is hard to find the comic book ladies in crochet form. Everyone goes to your male heroes, but the ladies are underrepresented.

Remember Thundercats? I do, I wanted to be Cheetara when I was younger. (I was young and didn’t understand cartoons vs reality). So I made my very own plush Cheetara. There is needlefelting and quite a bit of hair, but she should be fairly simple once you get those done.

As always if you make her use #drunkenauntwendy so I can find her on Social Media and give you a thumbs up.

Mini Monsters – Carrie

Crocheted Carrie

Last year I did a bunch of mini monsters for Halloween. I didn’t get them all typed. I wanted to add this one to the mix. They’re all gonna laugh at you.

One of my first Steven King books and my absolute best Halloween Costume. (I even won a contest)

Crocheted Carrie
Blood everywhere

As you can see, I may have gotten blood all over my walls and radiator. Its all good because it was just stage makeup mixed with a lot of water. (I was going to use paint, but in the test run it dried really crusty). The makeup stays nice and bright, but it does transfer off if you rub it directly.

The hair can be attached anyway you like. This is a new method, that I like a lot, but it is a touch confusing.

You also can make her with no blood, but where is the fun in that.

HAIR
In Fuzzy Yellow
Take a piece of yarn and measure the crown of your dolls head. Set this aside, you will use this to make sure you make enough hair.

Using the hair color, wrap the yarn around an item the same width as you want the length of your hair to be. (I used my iphone). These wraps should be as long on the phone as your set aside piece of hair. The more wraps you do, the thicker the hair.

Then using the same yarn, SC along the spine of your item catching 3-4 pieces of yarn at a time. (This secures the hair). Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing.

Cut the hair at the other end.

Lay chain on head with hair covering face and tack down. Flip hair to the back of the head and start tacking down sections. Leave some free.

PIGS BLOOD
Wet the red makeup to a runny consistency. You want it in between honey and whole milk. Dump on your dolls head. I also used a toothbrush and spattered some on her to spread out the blood.

Franken Berry – Free Crochet Pattern

It has been awhile since I have had time to type a pattern. I will try to be better. Here’s one of my Cereal Icons. I loved these commercials when I was little. My parents wouldn’t let us get these cereals as they were so sugary.

Remember, the pattern isn’t tested. Please use #drunkenauntwendy if you post on Instagram.

Note: Entire project is worked in the round. Use a stitch marker or a scrap piece of yarn to mark the beginning of each row. Then you don’t have to count every row. Do not join unless instructed to.

Parentheses indicate a repeat. Repeat the stitches in the parentheses for the number of times indicated.

I spread my increases out so there isn’t a seam on the finished piece. If you do not like this method, you can do regular increases.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at drunkenauntwendy@gmail.com.

HEAD – in Rosy Cheek
The head is made by doing an oval increase. Sometimes it helps to mark where your increases are going to go with a spare piece of contrasting yarn. Just note that the first row is worked on both sides of the starting chain. The face is then embroidered on before you add the hair and stuff him.
