Free Pattern – Beetsy the adorable beet

2015-01-10 16.02.41

I’ve been working in this very cold weather. What a better thing to do when it is ice cold than sit inside and make creatures. I got the idea for this while I was working on Mr. Sniffles. Meet Beetsy. She’s a quick little pattern that can be made in a variety of colors. As I was going for beet, I made her purple.

Materials
Worsted Weight Yarn
I love this yarn – Hot Orchid (45 yds)
I love this yarn – Jelly Bean (20 yds)
Size 18 mm eyes
Size E crochet hook
Polyfiberfill
Large Eye Needle

 

Abbreviations
SC – Single Crochet
HDC – Half Double Crochet
CH- Chain
FO – Fasten Off
SL ST – Slip Stitch
INC – Make two Single Crochet in Same Stitch
DEC – Single Crochet two stitches together
BLO – Back Loops Only
FLO – Front Loops Only

Note: Almost the 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.

The bracketed number [] is the number of stitches at the end of each row.

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.
