FOR NOTES, TIPS & ABBREVIATIONS:
PATTERN SHELLY & SANDY MERMAID PART 2
Not stuffed, using colour (A) yarn chain 32 and ss into the first chain to make a circle.
Helpful hint: work into the outside loop of the chain for this round, we will use the inside loop of the chain later when we are finished with the body.
Helpful hint: the chain 1 at the beginning of each row does not count as a stitch, but it is important to make the chain 1, and you will see why as we go along – it makes a nice straight seam – make the chain 1 loose otherwise the seam will “pull” up on this side.
Ch 1, dc into same ch, dc 14, 3 dc into next ch, dc 15, 3 dc into next ch, ss into 1st dc (36 dc).
Ch 1, dc into same st, dc 16, 2 dc into next st, dc 17, 2 dc into next st, ss into 1st dc (38 dc).
Ch 1, dc into same st, dc 17, 2 dc into next st, dc 18, 2 dc into next st, ss into 1st dc (40 dc).
Ch 1, dc into same st, dc 18, 2 dc into next st, dc 19, 2 dc into next st, ss into 1st dc (42 dc).
Ch 1, dc into same st, dc 19, 2 dc into next st, dc 20, 2 dc into next st, ss into 1st dc (44 dc).
Ch 1, dc into same st, dc 20, 2 dc into next st, dc 21, 2 dc into next st, ss into 1st dc (46 dc).
Ch 1, dc into same st, dc 21, 2 dc into next st, dc 22, 2 dc into next st, ss into 1st dc (48 dc), cut yarn and weave in ends.
Using colour (A) join yarn to round 1 of the body with a slip stitch.
Helpful hint: join yarn at one side of the neck at the top of the opening (where we are going to attach the head).
Ch 1, sc into same st, sc 31 along the neck ch, ss into 1st sc (32 sc).
Ch 1, *sc2tog, sc into next 2 sts*, rep *.* 7 more times (24 sc), cut yarn leaving a 40 cm tail to use to slip stitch the neck closed AFTER we have attached the body to the tail in Part 6.
Make two – lightly stuffed and worked in the round. Using colour (A) yarn make a mc.
Ch 1, sc 6 into mc, place st marker into 6th sc and continue to work in the round (6 sc).
Sc 2 into each st (12 sc).
*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next st*, rep *.* 5 more times (18 sc).
*sc 2 into next st, sc into next 2 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (24 sc).
Sc into next 24 sts (24 sc).
Rounds 6 – 9
Repeat round 5 (24 sc).
Make a 5 tr cl st into next st, sc into next 23 sts (1 x 5 tr cl, 23 sc).
Sc into next 22 sts, sc2tog (23 sc).
Sc into next 21 sts, sc2tog (22 sc).
Sc into next 20 sts, sc2tog (21 sc).
Sc into next 19 sts, sc2tog (20 sc).
Sc into next 18 sts, sc2tog (19 sc).
Helpful hint: at the end of this round we will continue to make the arms using the same yarn, so do not cut your yarn.
Sc into next 17 sts, sc2tog, sc an additional (approximately) 12 to 14 sts so that you end up on the side opposite the thumb so that the “join” will be underneath the arm, then ss into the next st (18 sc + app 12 to 14 sc).
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.
Ch 1, dc into same st, dc into next 17 sts, ss into 1st dc (18 dc).
Repeat round 18.
Helpful hint: lightly stuff the hands, think squishy, then the same colour yarn slip stitch the “wrist” closed, securing the stuffing into the hand, the arm is not stuffed so you can cut the yarn, weave in ends.
Ch 1, sc into same st, sc into next 17 sts, ss into 1st st, then slip stitch the opening closed, cut yarn leaving a tail to stitch the arm onto the body in Part 6.
