Amara – the love slug – Free Pattern

Halloween is over. The remaining mini’s will be posted, but I’m not a strict schedule any more. I will keep posting patterns as they are typed and try to keep to my current schedule of once or twice a week. Join the mailing list for exclusive content. There may be some patterns only available to members of my mailing list.

Without further ado, meet Amara the love slug. She’s a super cute slug with hearts in her eyes. As always, the pattern hasn’t been tested. So if you have issues or anything is confusing, please feel free to drop me a comment or an email.

Look how cute!

Materials

I love this yarn – Pink
I love this yarn – Red
I love this yarn – Black
12 mm heart shaped Safety eyes/noses
Size E crochet hook
Large eye blunt needle
Polyfiberfill

Abbreviations

SC – Single Crochet
DC – Double Crochet
Ch- Chain
SK – skip
INC – SC 2 stitches into same stitch
DEC – SC two stitches together
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 mainly 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.

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

BODY in pink
The body 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.
