Free Pattern Friday – Billy from Saw

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen all my mini-monsters. I love scary movies. I love October because it ends with Halloween. I’ve been having a lot fun with these guys. I’ve made 10 that will be typed up and make it onto the blog. Samara, the Babadook and Freddy Krueger are already up.

The movie series Saw pits the victims against elaborately constructed “Games” to make them learn the value of life. These games are often introduced by a ventriloquist puppet.

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.
