Jacques the Pumpkin Bear – Free Pattern

Standard
Jacques the Pumpkin Bear – Free Pattern

Jacques.

I know Halloween is over, but I just finished typing this pattern. Now you have time to make it up before next October.

You can use safety eyes instead of embroidering if you want to. It might read a bit better. Again it is not tested.

Materials
Worsted Weight Yarn
I love this yarn – Orange
I love this yarn – Black
Size E crochet hook
Black Metallis Floss for the eyes and nose or
24 mm safety eyes and 24 mm nose
Polyfiberfill
Large Eye Needle

Gauge – Gauge is not important for this project, but if you are using the kit materials using a larger hook might make you run out of yarn.

Abbreviations
SC – Single Crochet
HDC – Half 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
3DEC – Single Crochet three stitches together
BLO – Back Loops Only
PUFF Stitch – (Yarn over, pull up stitch, yarn over, pull through 2 loops) 4 times, yarn over, pull through remaining four loops

Note: Almost the 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.

Bride of Frankenstein – Free Pattern

Halloween is almost upon us. I’m done with the mini-monsters and I will be moving on to Mythical Creatures for an online contest. I’m still typing up the patterns on a regular basis. I’ll try to keep to my current schedule and post them regularly.

I’m also teaching myself how to make soap. It was a project with the kids that I am expanding on.

Ohio State Soap is a must in my area

Christmas Jello soap.

Super cute owl soap.

First soaps with the kids.

The goat’s milk soap doesn’t take the colors as well. I’m not sure whether I like the goat’s milk vs. the glycerin that is clearer so the colors are brighter. I am also adding scents, but very lightly as I don’t like strong scents.

Here’s your Bride of Frankenstein Pattern. Again it hasn’t been tested. Join the mailing list for exclusive content.

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.

Attach to head pursuant to the instructions below.

HEAD – in Pistache
The head is made by doing an oval increase. Sometimes 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 her.

He’s the ghost with the most. Did everyone else love this movie as much as I did? And the cartoon? Sometimes I sing Day-O out of nowhere. People might think I’m a bit nuts.

You can’t really tell from this picture, but I gave him glow in the dark teeth. At night he is spooky, but awesome.

She-Hulk Free Pattern

I know it has been forever. I’ve been working on all sorts of new things. If you don’t follow me on Instagram, you should. I am finally getting used to the platform and getting a lot better at it.

Now for the main event: SHE-HULK!

I love comic book ladies and feel they are underrepresented in the crochet world. IMG_2897

Look at that face. I used my eyelash technique, because it is my favorite. I may run out of doll lashes soon. Also her booty shorts are just the cutest.

The pattern is available below. I have not tested it. I think her boobs need to be bigger. When I test it, I will try that part. I also have not calculated the yardage for the different colors. If you run into problems or errors, please contact me or leave a comment.

Cut two sections of 3 doll lashes and glue to the underside of the eyes. Use a strong glue. I use E6000. Set aside to dry while you work on the head.

HEAD – in Limelight
The head is made by doing an oval increase. Sometimes 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 her.

Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing.
Stuff the head and sew on the hair continuing to stuff as you go.

Cut several 8 inch pieces of jelly bean to attach as hair. You can make the hair longer if you wish.

Attach the hair by folding the piece of hair in half, pulling the loop through and securing the open ends. Attach in a line on the left side of her head for the part. Attach on the other side of the line. Attach throughout the head. Using a slicker brush, go through the hair causing the yarn to unravel. This can take upwards of an hour depending on how many strands of hair you use. Then using the needlefelting tool, style the hair.
