Free Pattern – Samara from the Ring

Free Pattern – Samara from the Ring

VHS tapes are rare these days. But if you happen upon an unmarked cassette, make sure you don’t watch it less Samara comes out of the TV to scare you to death.

She’s another part of my mini-monster collection. Other patterns done are Freddy Krueger and The Babadook. There are 10 in all. Join my mailing list for links to exclusive content.

Materials

I love this yarn – Black
I love this yarn – Antique White
Vanna’s Choice – Beige
12 mm safety eyes
Size E crochet hook
Large eye blunt needle
Polyfiberfill

Abbreviations

SC – Single Crochet
DC – Double Crochet
Ch- Chain
INC – SC 2 stitches into same stitch
DEC – SC two stitches together
BLO – Back loops only
FLO – Front Loops only

Gauge – Gauge is not important for this project, but if you are making it from the kit, you should use the right size needle to ensure you don’t run out of yarn.

Notes:
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.

Crochet section is worked in partly 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.
