I've been down and out the last couple of days with the flu. Luckily I didn't have the really terrible stomach bug, but I still couldn't eat and I was all kinds of achy and dead. For the first two days I could hardly even put the next movie on. Luckily I started to feel a bit better yesterday and realized that my weekly-ish deadline was approaching for my blog. After attacking my sister for ideas she told me to make this guy. Seriously I just make whatever my sister says. Should I be worried?
I was unsure about the whole jewel on his back thing. I couldn't find any pictures of it at first and didn't even know about it until my husband said something. I'm sure its not 100% accurate, but the pictures I did find were not as helpful as I would have liked. Hopefully its in the "close enough" category.
One final side note before I give up the goods. I'm going to be out of town for a couple of weeks and I'm not sure if I'll be posting anything or not in that time. But fear not! I have a couple of new projects I want to do when I get back.
OK, here's what you've been waiting for.
Ch - chain
Sc - single crochet
Sl st - slip stitch
= rows - sc in each stitch around
Ch 7, sc twice into the 2nd chain from hook
Sc 6 down the chain, add three more sc in the 6th
Sc on the straight, inc ever other stitch on the curve of the oval. (If you are making yours larger than mine you will need to add on inc in the middle of each straight as well.)
Continue until the oval is about 2-2.5 inches at its widest point.
Choose the inner portion of the chain and sc 1=round
Sc 10, inc 1, sc 10, etc for 3 rows
Sc 10, inc 1, sc 10, etc for 2 rows
Sc 20, inc, sc20 for 1 row (or until you end up on the curved edge of the oval)
(now for the taller lip on the sides of his “head”)
Sc 4, turn, sc 10, turn sc to other side (about 20 sc)
Sc 10, turn, sc 9, sl st into the next stitch, turn
Sc for 1=row, tie off.
Sc 6 in a magic circle. Sc = rows until you have a long tube (around 6 inches). Fold in half and stuff about halfway in his head. Repeat until you have enough fries to fill his head.
Add facial features with felt and embroidery.
