Scrump inspired VooDoo Doll



Materials

Scissors
 Yarn needle
5mm Crochet Hook
buttons
stuffing

Yarn colors
"Mint green"
Yellow
black, or brown
pink

NOTES:
I would suggest working on the limbs, and "collar" first, as you'll be sewing them on before you close the body up.
MC - Magic Circle (if you haven't mastered the magic circle, an alternative would be to chain 3 join together and crochet inside the circle)
SC - Single Crochet
SC2TO - Single Crochet Two Together
** - Repeat everything between astriks.
If you are unsure of any of the stitches above, there are some great tutorials on Youtube that will walk you through how to do them.
Make sure to move your stitch markers at the end of each round, there will be many reminders as it's pretty important you do so.

LIMBS:
Starting with a MC
RND1: SC 6 in MC
RND2: 2 SC in each ST around
RND3: *SC in next ST, 2 SC in next*
RND4-15: SC in each ST around
Add your stuffing, and sew your limb together so the top flattens out

COLLAR:

With pink Chan 22, and join to the first CH
SC in each ST around fastening off

HEAD and BODY:

Don't forget to move the stitch marker into the last stitch after each round!
Start with a MC
RND1: SC 6 inside MC, add stitch marker in last stitch from here on out (DO NOT JOIN, continue working in the round)
RND2: 2 SC in each ST around, add marker
RND3: *SC in next ST, 2 SC in next*
RND4: *SC in next 2 ST, 2 SC in next*
RND5: *SC in next 3 ST, 2 SC in next*
RND6: *SC in next 4 ST, 2 SC in next*
RND7: *SC in next 5 ST, 2 SC in next*
RND8: *SC in next 6 ST, 2 SC in next*
RND9: *SC in next 7 ST, 2 SC in next*
RND10: *SC in next 8 ST, 2 SC in next*
RND11: *SC in next 9 ST, 2 SC in next*
RND12: *SC in next 10 ST, 2 SC in next*
RND13-27: Sc in each ST around

Now we are going to start decreasing our stitches

RND28: *SC in next 10 ST, SC2TO*
RND29: *SC in next 9 ST, SC2TO*
RND30: *SC in next 8 ST, SC2TO*
RND31: *SC in next 7 ST, SC2TO*
RND32: *SC in next 6 ST, SC2TO*
RND33:*SC in next 5 ST, SC2TO*
RND34: *SC in next 4 ST, SC2TO*
RND35: *SC in next 3 ST, SC2TO*
At this point you are going to add the stuffing to the head, and sew on your button and your mouth.
WITH BROWN/BLACK: To sew on the mouth, I just did random weaves to create a "rough" smile, and I just made random pink stitches.
WITH YELLOW: For the eyes I used a large 4 hole button (I just went from one hole across to the other one)  and a small 4 hole (making an "X" pattern.
add your stuffing last, it will make it easier to sew your pieces.
RND36-38: SC in each ST around.
Increases are going to begin again
RND39: *SC in next 3 ST, 2 SC in next ST*
RND40: *SC in next 4 ST, 2 SC in next ST*
RND41: *SC in next 5 ST, 2 SC in next ST*
RND42: *SC in next 6 ST, 2 SC in next ST*
RND43-48: SC in each St around
The end is near, promise.
RND49: *SC in next 6 ST, SC2TO*
RND50: *SC in next 5 ST, SC2TO*
RND51: *SC in next 4 ST, SC2TO*
RND52: *SC in next 3 ST, SC2TO*
At this point add the collar around the body up to the neck, otherwise it will not fit around the body, or head.
Also, add the last button on the body with an x pattern stitched in the button!
Add remainder of stuffing
RND53: *SC in next 2 ST, SC2TO*
RND54: *SC in next ST, SC2TO*
RND55: SC2TO, in remainder of ST in the row
Fasten off leaving a tail for sewing in the ends
Sew the hole clothes by weaving through the ST
Sew the limbs and you're finished!!
I added my limbs right at the bottom of the counter

RND23: CH1 SC in same ST as Join: SC in 4 ST, SC2TO, repeat around join with a SL (it’s okay if it doesn’t even out just finish out row with SC)

Weave tail in and out of every ST until closed, FASTEN OFF!



POM:



I don’t have a POM-POM maker as my hands work just as well!



I wrapped around 3 fingers, until it was to my liking about 65 times.

Pull it off your fingers and tie it in the middle

Cut the loops and there is your POOF!

Attach to the top of the hat!




Finished! I hope you enjoy your beautiful new hat!

What have I been up to?

 


I have been working on a few new patterns, which I will be posting soon, I just have a few more revisions to make, I've been working on really improving them. I have also been working on being a mommy, and moving. It's been hard to find the time to put up new patterns.

I have also been working on going back to school, I just feel like it's something I need to do, for myself.

Beginner Coasters



This is a perfect beginner pattern for someone just beginning with a magic circle or just beginning to work in the round!

It was inspired by constantly having to clean out the bottom of my cup holders in my car, due to soda spilling, or some drink "sweating" and crumbs and dirt gets stuck in there!


MATERIALS:
5MM Crochet Hook
Any brand of cotton yarn

I used 2 colors Just because I wanted a little "spunk", one color or more is awesome as well!


Start with a MC
HDC 10 into MC join with SL
 CH 2; 1 HDC in same ST, 2 HDC in every ST around join with SL
CH2; 1 HDC in same ST, *1 HDC in next ST, 2 HDC in next*, repeat from* to *around, Join with SL
