PATTERN

ELIAH ELLIE PART 2 – BOY & GIRL

HANDS

Make two – lightly stuffed and worked in the round.

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, and because we are working quite tightly in the round, I weave my beginning tail in whilst working round 2.

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)

Round 3

*sc 2 into next st, sc into next st*, rep *.* 7 more times (24 sc)

Round 4

*sc 2 into next st, sc into next 2 sts*, rep *.* 7 more times (32 sc)

Round 5

Helpful hint: the next round is the ONLY round worked in the back loop only.

sc into blo of next 32 sts (32 sc)

Round 6

sc into next 32 sts (32 sc)

Round 7 -11

repeat round 6 (32 sc)

Round 12

*inv sc2tog, sc into next 2 sts*, rep *.* 7 more times (24 sc)

Round 13

sc into next 24 sts (24 sc)

Round 14

*inv sc2tog, sc into next 2 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (18 sc)

Round 15

sc into next 18 sts (18 sc)

Round 16-20

repeat round 15 (18 sc)

Helpful hint: at the end of round 20, ss into next st, cut yarn, leaving 20 cm tail (to stitch stuffing into 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 25 cm tail to stitch to body, (ss top of arm together as it looks neater and is easier to stitch to the 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.

Fingernails

Make 6 (3 per hand)

Using colour (D) make a mc

Round 1

ch 1, make 8 sc into mc, ss into 1st sc (8), cut yarn leaving a long tail, nj (the tail will be used to stitch the nails onto the hand when we put the Ellie together in the last part).

HEART

Using colour (F) 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, ss into dc from previous round, cut yarn, leaving 20 cm 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.
