Twisty – Free Crochet Pattern

Happy Friday to everyone. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, I hope you are enjoying my Princess Bride dolls. They are making me oddly happy.

American Horror Story Freak Show featured the lovely clown, Twisty. He was quite the creepy clown. Here’s a little mini version of him. Remember, the pattern is not tested. Let me know if something is off. If you post it on Instagram use #drunkenauntwendy so I can find it.  I don’t know why the spacing went all weird at the end.

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.

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