Free Crochet Pattern – Mr. Sa – the Superbug, MRSA

Free Crochet Pattern – Mr. Sa – the Superbug, MRSA

Here at Drunken Aunt Wendy Designs, I’ve been continuing my crochet microbes series. Below you will find a pattern for Mr. Sa. He’s MRSA under the microscope. He’s got a cape because he’s a superbug. I think I’m going to have to crochet an antibiotic in order to fight off all these diseases.

But before we get to your free pattern, lets check in on everything else I have been up to.

I finished my gingham plaid scarf. I went a little crazy on the color scheme settling on Lime Green and Blush.

Handwoven plaid scarf

Handwoven scarf

This one I made with worsted weight acrylic yarn. I don’t think I will use the same kind of yarn in the warp as it was a touch sticky in the heddle. The next scarf will be purple silk made out of lace weight yarn. It should have amazing drape.

Last week I also found a bonus sweater. What is a bonus sweater? Well it is a completely knitted wool cable sweater that just needed the arms sewn on. Exactly how many projects do I have going that I forgot I knitted a sweater. I mean seriously.

Handknit sweater with cables

It is made out of Wool of the Andes Yarn in Sapphire Heather from Knit Picks. I’m a big fan of this site. The yarn is very reasonable and makes sweater knitting significantly cheaper. The pattern is called the Central Park Hoodie. It is one of my favorite patterns. I have knitted it a couple of times. The end project is super cozy. I did go up a size on the arms as my biceps are huge. (knitting apparently beefs them up, lol).

Free Crochet Pattern

Now what you have all been waiting for. Here’s the crochet pattern for Mr. Sa, the MRSA superbug.

If you haven’t visited me before, the free patterns are not tested. Tested versions with lots of photos are available in my Etsy or Ravelry shops. If you make Mr. Sa, make sure to use #drunkenauntwendy so I can find it on social media. Don’t forget the other crocheted microbes, Anthrax and Mr. Sniffles.

Materials
Worsted Weight Yarn
I love this yarn in Old Leaf
I love this yarn in Black
12 mm Safety eyes
Size E crochet hook
Polyfiberfill
Large Eye Needle

Gauge is not important for this project unless you have purchased a kit. Using the right size hook is important to ensure you have enough yarn.

HDC – Half Double Crochet
DC- Double 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

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.

Free Crochet Pattern – Baby Platypus

I’ve been working on my crocheted microbes. I haven’t had a chance to type up the pattern yet, but meet Clint and Lydia. They are based on microscopic version of Chlamydia.

Crocheted Chlamydia

The beer koozies were taking up a bit of my time, but I have still been weaving.

Check out this twisted fringe.

Handwoven scarf - twisted fringe

I used the Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball. It created a wonderful ombre effect with very little work on my part.

I also like to make sure I try patterns by other designers to give me ideas for shaping, structure and texture.

This little porg is about 3″ tall. The pattern is available on Ravelry from Geeky Hooker. It turned out super cute.

Amigurumi Porg

On to your free pattern. Remember for tested patterns that have lots of pictures check out my Etsy or Ravelry pages. I entered a contest for amigurumi parents and babies. Here is my baby Platypus. His name is Gus. He is super cute and waiting to grow into a full-fledged platypus. If you make him, post a picture with #drunkenauntwendy so I can find it and give you lots of love.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I am almost done with Pinky. NARF! Brain and Pinky should be ready to take over the world this weekend.

Crocheted Pinky and the Brain
Did you see Animaniacs and Pinky and the Brain are coming back with new content on Hulu? Make your own Yakko, Wakko, and Dot and sit back and watch the show with your little friends.

I’ve also finally got back to weaving. That is my goal for this year. I want to use this expensive piece of equipment that my husband was nice enough to allow me to purchase.

Warping the loom
It is very meditative, but warping takes forever. I’m thinking of adding a luxury line of handwoven goods based on Pantone’s color of the year – Ultra Violet.

Here’s your first free pattern for the New Year. It’s a Jelly Jar! This is a great way to use up scraps of yarn. You can make many different kinds.

Dot – Free Crochet Pattern

Last week was my off week for crochet. I try to schedule one week a month that do another craft non crochet related, be it knitting, soap making, weaving, etc. This week, I went back to cross stitch. I started this a long time ago and decided I needed to finish it this week. Naively, I thought “How long could it take.”

Hogwarts express

3-5 hours a night later for the whole week, I learned just how long it could take. I was also halfway done when I started this week. I will not be posting a picture of the back of the project as it is a complete disaster. Plus I somehow managed to spill a little bit of red wine on it.  AAAAAAAH! Now I need to remember how to frame it and all that fun wonderful stuff.

Now for the free pattern. I’m sure you remember Yakko and Wakko. The Warner Brothers have been up on my blog for a little bit, making their poor sister sad. No worries, Dot. We just saved the best for last. If you make Dot and post her on Instagram, please use the hashtag #drunkenauntwendy so I can find it. I’d love to see your work.

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.

Spray Paint the Nose before you start crocheting to give them time to dry. I recommend 2 coats to get even coverage.

Cut 3 pieces of eyelashes and glue to the flat part of your safety eye. I use E6000 to get a good tight hold. Set aside to dry and attach as instructed.

The example pictures are from a different head that has the same construction as Black is difficult to see the stitches.

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.
