Frostina and Sparky

I think these two might be my favorite. The pictures don’t show how sparkly she is. I also love their expressions and striped arms. Since they are hot and cold, Katy Perry music runs through my head when I look at them.

Look at all this sparkly hair.

I also love how long I made the arms.

They will be up here free for two weeks. Let me know if there are any problems or any of the instructions are unclear.

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.

 

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.

HAIR

Frostina only

Cut several strands of diamond fifteen inches long. Fold in half and attach with a slip stitch.

 

Leave the first two rows without hair to sew the head flames on.

 

I prefer to attach hair every other row.

 

After you attach the head flames, you can add some more hairs to fill in any visible bald spots.

 

 

 

MOUTHMake one

Both have the same mouth it is just turned a different direction.
