PART 2 – BOY & GIRL

HANDS

Make two – lightly stuffed

Using colour (A) yarn make a mc

Round 1:              ch 1, sc 8 into mc, place st marker into 8th sc and continue to work in the round (8 sc)

Round 2:              sc 2 into each st (16 sc)

Helpful hint: move the stitch marker and place in the last stitch of each row and this will help keep your stitch count correct and help with row counting, I have made this pattern more times than I can remember, and I still use a stitch marker otherwise I get my final stitch count incorrect, and because we are working quite tightly in the round, I weave my beginning tail in whist working round 3.

Round 3:              *sc 2 into next st, sc into next st*, rep *.* 6 more times (24 sc)

Round 4:              *sc 2 into next st, sc into next 2 sts*, rep *.* 6 more times (32 sc)

Round 5:              sc into next 32 sts (32 sc)

Round 6-10:       repeat round 5

Round 11:           *inv sc2tog, sc into next 2 sts*, rep *.* 6 more times (24 sc)

Round 12:           sc into next 24 sts (24 sc)

Round 13:           *inv sc2tog, sc into next 2 sts*, rep *.* 4 more times (18 sc)

Round 14:           sc into next 18 sts (18 sc)

Round 15-20:    repeat round 14 (18 sc)

Helpful hint: at the end of round 20, ss into next st, cut yarn, leaving 20cm tail (to stitch stuffing in to hand) and leave the tail on the outside of the hand (this makes stitching the stuffing into the hand easier).  We are going to do this after a few rounds of the arm section.

ARMS

Not stuffed

Using colour (C), join yarn in the last single crochet from round 20.

Round 21:           ch 1 and dc into same st, dc into the next 17 sts, ss into 1st dc (18 dc)

Helpful hint: the chain 1 stitch does not count as a stitch BUT it is used, and the reason for this is so that we get a nice straight join – have no idea how, but it works LOL.

Round 22:           ch 1, dc into same st, dc into next 17 sts, ss into 1st dc (18 dc)

Round 23-28:    repeat round 22

Helpful hint: lightly stuff the hands, think squishy, then using the long tail left from the “hand” section stitch the “wrist” closed, securing the stuffing into the hand, the arm is not stuffed, cut yarn, weave in ends.

Round 29:           ch 1, sc into same st, sc into next 17 sts, cut yarn leaving a 25cm tail to stitch to body

Helpful hint: slip stitch the arm opening (after you have stuffed and stitched the hand), again I do this as it looks neater when we attach the arms to the body later, make sure that your join is on the side of the arm, that way you won’t really see it.

HEART

Using colour (B) yarn make a mc

Round 1:              ch 1 (does not count as a st) sc 11 into mc, ss into 1st sc (11 sc)

Round 2:              ch 3 (counts as 1st dc), dc into same st, dc 3 into next st, hdc into next st, sc into next 2 sts, hdc into next st (bottom of heart), sc into next 2 sts, hdc into next st, dc 3 into next st, dc into next st, ch 3, cut yarn, leaving 20cm tail to use to stitch to top of body and nj into same sp of last dc from round (this will give you a nice heart shape) (2 x ch 3, 3 x hdc, 8 x dc, 4 x sc)

Helpful hint: we will stitch the heart onto the body in PART 6.
