Mummy – Free Crochet Pattern

Mummy – Free Crochet Pattern

This week, I am finishing up my testing of Brain and making sure that there are no issues with the pattern. I should have a kit finished by the beginning of next year if you want to make your own brain. Remember, there is exclusive content for those that are mailing list members.

Questions:

  1. What would you like for me to add to the blog? More patterns? Videos?
  2. Mailing list members, would you like an email when I post a new pattern?
  3. What should I make next: Princess Bride? Ghostbusters? Female comic heros? Avengers Infinity War? Leave a comment, Let me know.

I am also working on another faux taxidermy head. This one is a rabbit. The pattern is confusing the crap out of me, but I am plugging along.

Now for the free pattern. He stumbles along and hopes his wrappings don’t come undone. If you make him, post it on Instagram. Use #drunkenauntwendy so I can find him and give you lots of love.

Super cute Mummy. This one actually brings a lot of people to my table whenever I am at a show. It brings them in, but no one ever buys him. He is really sad about that.

This little guy is approximately 8″ when finished. You can make him smaller or larger depending on your hook and yarn size.

Materials

SL ST – Slip Stitch

DEC – Single Crochet two stitches together
BLO – Back Loops Only
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.

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

 

HEAD in Greymist
The head 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. The face

is then embroidered on before you finish the head and stuff her.

  1. Thank you for answering my questions. The mummy is about 8″ tall when done. I will keep your suggestions in mind. I’ve got one vote for everything but Ghostbusters. I will have to see if I get more votes.
