Michael Myers – Free Crochet Pattern

Michael Myers Crochet Pattern

I’ve been working on my website. I hope it is easy for you to navigate now. The Available Free Patterns page has been completely revamped. Right now, over 80 patterns are linked. Simply scroll down and click on whichever one you want to make.

I also updated the Exclusive Patterns page. If you get my mailing list you will get a code periodically for the exclusive pattern. Every once in a while I’ll provide all the previous codes. You should join my mailing list so you don’t miss any codes.

A donation button has been added. If you like my patterns and would like to give me a couple of bucks to use on yarn, I’d appreciate it.

Now onto new stuff. I’ve been working on my jewelry. The dragonscale bracelet took most of the summer. I did find new John Lennon Stamps which meant new resin necklaces. So excited!!. Finally, I dusted off my metal stamping block and stamps to make these fun Ohio necklaces. (Not shown are the 6 Ohios that I couldn’t get to work). Trial and error were big on these.

 

Now for the Free Pattern. Halloween is one of my favorite scary movies. Michael Myers is the best. Here is a free crochet pattern for a mini Michael Myers. If you make him, use #drunkenauntwendy so I can find it.

Let me know what you think.

Michael Myers Crochet Pattern
Happy Halloween

Materials

I love this yarn Med Blue
I love this yarn in Brown
I love this yarn in White
Fuzzy medium brown yarn
12 mm safety eyes
Red stage makeup
Paint brush
Slicker Brush
Size E crochet hook
Large eye blunt needle

Abbreviations

Ch- Chain
INC – SC 2 stitches into same stitch
DEC – SC two stitches together
BLO – Back loops only
FLO – Front Loops only

Gauge – Gauge is not important for this project, but if you are making it from the kit, you should use the right size needle to ensure you don’t run out of yarn.

Notes:
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.

Crochet section is worked in partly 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.

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

Betty the Yeti – Free Crochet Pattern

Free Crochet Yeti Pattern

This quarter I have taken up beading. It was really hard to start. Having the proper tools definitely makes it easier. I highly recommend using the right tools and amazon in order to make progress. Uploading images is proving difficult today. Make sure you check out what I have been up to on Instagram.

Meet Betty the Yeti. I created her for a contest. I didn’t win, but I adore her.

She is made with Bernat Blanket Yarn which is what gives it the super soft snuggliness.

Remember she isn’t tested. Let me know if you have any questions or issues. Please us #drunkenauntwendy if you post so I can find it and give you props.

Free Pattern – Handy Crochet Tote

Crochet market tote pattern with sunflower

20120207-202134.jpg

I have been trying to get this pattern up for awhile, but I’m never home during the daylight hours. I really wanted to get the picture outside. This is the best alternative I could come up with. I really prefer natural light, but I think the colors are fairly well represented. You can attach any flower. I like this sunflower, but you might want to check out Micah Makes and her interchangeable big button flower. You can find it here,.
