Princess Buttercup – Free Crochet Pattern
If you follow me on Instagram (if you don’t you should), you’ll know I’m working on Cheetara from the Thundercats. There was also a poll for my next item. The winner is the Marvel Universe. There are a lot of male superhero crochet patterns out there so I’m going to try to make the female ones. I’ve already done She-Hulk and I have a huge list of more Marvel Female Characters.
I’ve had a bit of free time lately, so I’ve been typing. I was on a Princess Bride kick a while back. I’ve already posted Westley. Please enjoy. Remember these patterns are not tested. Let me know if you have problems. If you post a picture please tag me or use #drunkenauntwendy. Then I can find it.
Now I present to you. Princess Buttercup.
Worsted Weight Yarn

12 MM Safety Eyes
Size E crochet hook
Large Eye Needle
Small Sharp Embroidery Needle

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cut a section of three lashes and glue to the flat part of the eye. Set aside until called for.
HEAD – in Beige
The head is made by doing an oval increase. Sometime 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 add the hair and stuff her.

Place safety eyes between rows 10-11 approximately 8 stitches apart. It helps to fold the head flat so you can make sure it is centered on the oval.
