Boo!

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have voted for this guy. I keep putting up Boo Berry but he never wins. Poor guy.

I was a huge fan of Ghostbusters as a kid, both the movie and the cartoon. (I know I am aging myself). Stay Puft becomes friends with Slimer later on. It is the best.

As usual, he’s not tested. I’m working on typing up all the patterns I have done over the years. I’m also updating my available patterns page to make it easier to navigate. Simply scroll to the picture you want and click on it to be taken to the pattern for that item. Suggestions are always welcome on how to make the site easier to navigate.

Now for the pattern:

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.

EYES
Before starting paint small half moons in white on the bottom of the safety eyes.

HEAD – in White
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 him.
