Pinky – Free Crochet Pattern


I’m back!!! The county fair is over. School will be starting back soon. I actually have time to crochet and type. It’s wonderful!!

My apologies for this taking so long. You make his companion Brain and then plot to take over the world. It takes a lot of restraint not to do stop motion movies with these little guys.

If you make him, use #drunkenauntwendy so I can find him on your social media and give you lots of likes.

NARF!

Puff Stitch –(Insert the hook in the stitch, yarn over, draw the yarn through the stitch) repeat 2 more times. You should have loops on your hook. Yarn over and draw through all 6 loops on the hook. Push the stitch out.

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 White
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 him.
