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
Polyfiberfill

Abbreviations

SC – Single Crochet
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.

I’ve been working on crocheting my childhood.

Here’s Wakko. You can also get Dot and Yakko. Crocheted Animaniacs

Remember this one isn’t tested. If you see problems, let me know. If you make Wakko, use #drunkenauntwendy when posting pictures 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.

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

HEAD – in Black
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 finish the head and stuff him. The example pictures are from a different head that has the same construction as Black is difficult to see the stitches.

Crocheted Brutus the Buckeye Pattern

20111228-204431.jpg

Being from Central Ohio, it is almost a requirement to be an Ohio State Buckeye fan. I can’t say that I am, but most of my extended family is. This year for the family gift exchange, I thought there should be a plush Brutus, to love, and squeeze. This was the end result.

Let me know if you find any problems with the pattern.

Sheldon the Crab – free crochet pattern

Crochet Crab pattern

I’ve decided this year to start blogging my patterns. They will be available free in the untested version. If you would like the tested .pdf version with no ads, visit my etsy shop Drunken Aunt Wendy. I also have kits available to make Sheldon in his alternate light blue and purple color scheme. This is my Cuddly Aquarium series. Other in this series include Puck the Seal, Max the Mantis Shrimp, Lennie the Jellyfish, Silas the Snail, Cecilia the Narwhal, and Lucy the Lobster. All are available in my Etsy Shop. I have a few more to design and print and I will issue an ebook.

Sheldon started out as a way for me to figure out how to make claws and then moved on from there.

The pattern is below. As most crocheters say, please provide a link back to me so that I can get credit for this design.
