Clem and Lydia Chlamydia – Free Crochet Pattern

Sometimes I make weird things. It’s fun to step outside of the box. Here’s another addition to my crocheted microbes collection. If you want to make a set, don’t forget to check out Mr. SnifflesAnthrax and Mr. Sa. There are more to come.

I hope you enjoy. This is not a tested pattern so let me know if you have problems or anything is confusing.  Use #drunkenauntwendy if you post a picture so I can find it. Also check out my Etsy shop for tested patterns, kits and completed plush.

Without further ado, here’s Clem and Lydia. They might be Chlamydia, but they are super cute.

Crocheted Chlamydia Pattern

Materials
Worsted Weight Yarn
I love this yarn – Jellybean
I love this yarn – Limelight
I love this yarn – Hot Rose (Lydia only)
Size 18 mm Plastic Safety eyes
Doll eyelashes (Lydia only, 5 per eye)
Epoxy 6060
Size E crochet hook
Polyfiberfill
Large Eye Needle
Abbreviations
SC – Single Crochet
HDC – Half Double Crochet
DC – Double Crochet
TC- Triple Crochet
CH- Chain
FO – Fasten Off
SL ST – Slip Stitch
INC – Make two Single Crochet in Same Stitch
DEC – Single Crochet two stitches together
BLO – Back Loops Only
FLO – Front Loops Only

Note: Almost the 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.

See last page for alternative color options

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

If you are making Lydia, cut a section of 5 doll eyelashes and attach to the flat part of the safety eyes using the Epoxy 6060. Set aside to dry.
