We are changing color next. I honestly don’t like changing colors. It looks nice. I want to be good at it. I’m just not really. I have to practice more. I’m just being lazy about it and this is for me and it was an experiment so who cares right?! Right. Thank you.
You can see the lack of expertise with the red starting abruptly and the oddness of this. In a big project it wouldn’t be noticeable
This row is another increase. We want to keep this as flat as we can, so do 2sc in each st to beg (beginning). You will have 24 sc.
OK. That’s the body. Lets start the head. Continue with 2sc for the next three stitches. You are going to want 6 sc st on the top.
Those scs are the foundation of the head. Ch(chain) 3 and turn.
The head is really just two roundish bumps to accommode the eyes. Now dc (double crochet) in the SAME place as the beginning of the chain. And do two more dc. You are going to have 4 columns now.
To create the bump down sl (slip stitch) in the next SC. Then continue with 3 more dc in the next three stitches. At this point you will have a very straight side and a rounded side. To balance the sides chain 2 and sl into the next st.
Then insert it right underneath the other eye. Leave some slack. This is where the magic happens.
Now insert the needle in the SAME hole you just made. This pulls the tip and you can only see that it is joined this way if you know what you are looking for. Sew in the end then tie it to the first tail from the first needle poke.
Here is a size comparison
Left – I hook, 2.5inches wide by 3 inches tall
Right – G hook, 2 inches wide by 2.5 inches tall
Hmm… I wonder what this guy would look like with a super bulky yarn and over sized needle….
Hook – G or I
Yarn – Worsted Weight – 4 ply, two or three colors
join and work a sc in the same st
2sc in each st (12) cut off tail
2Sc in each st (24)
2sc in each of the next 3 st ch 2 and turn
dc into same st and 2 st
sl into the next st
dc into the next 3 st
ch2 and sl into next sl
tie off and weave in
4 sc do not join
tie tails together.
