Pink and White Harley Quinn – Free Pattern

Standard
Pink and White Harley Quinn – Free Pattern

A while back I made this super cute Harley Quinn. I like the pink and white version. She is a bit softer in pink and white.

Pink and White

Warning, there are quite a few color changes on this one. You need to try to make them at the same spot each row to keep the color blocking right. Again this is not tested. If you have questions or problems, please let me know.

Materials
Worsted Weight Yarn
I love this yarn – Pink
I love this yarn – Antique White
14 MM Safety Eyes
Doll eyelashes
E6000 epoxy
Size E crochet hook
Polyfiberfill
Large Eye Needle

Abbreviations
SC – Single 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
Puff Stitch –(Insert the hook in the stitch, yarn over, draw the yarn through the stitch) repeat 2 more times. You should have loops on your hook. Yarn over and draw through all 6 loops on the hook. Push the stitch out.
BLO – Back Loops Only
FLO – Front 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.

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