Mystique – Free Crochet Pattern

I am working on my Drunken Care Bears. They are super cute. I’m making a Wino Bear.

I haven’t had as much time as I like to keep up with all my idea. I think I have some crafting ADD. I can’t focus on one thing at a time. I love to do all types of crafts.

Next up, air plant cork magnets and soaps. These have an ulterior purpose as I will be selling them at the vacant space where my new bar is going. (Maybe the bar is what is taking up all my time).

Anyway, I have been focusing on female pop culture characters. You voted on Instagram for the Marvel Universe. I decided on Mystique.

I think I have finally perfected that hourglass figure typical to most comic book characters.

Crochet Pattern Mystique

One of my favorite characters from the X-Men. I love Mystique. I got the beads from the Bead Chest. I think the really add to the finished doll.

BLO – Back Loops Only
FLO – Front Loops Only

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.
