Chickenpox – Free Crochet Pattern
Meet Eggbert. He’s a Chicken Pox virus. Now there is a vaccination for Chicken Pox. I remember people sending their kids over to get Chicken Pox when I had it. It was summer, my grandparents were up for a visit, but I couldn’t leave and stayed on the couch.
The pattern is not tested. Let me know if you have any questions or if there are problems with the pattern. If you post a picture, use #drunkenauntwendy so I can find it.

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 email@example.com.
