PATTERN FIREMAN FRED PART 3

BODY

Not stuffed, using colour (B) yarn chain 32 and ss into the first chain to make a ring.

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.

Round 7

Helpful hint: when I add the next colour, I do not cut the yarn but carry it “up” while working on the next colour, I also finish the last stitch in the one colour using the following technique:

Insert hook into stitch, yarn over with current colour, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through two loops, then yarn over with new colour and pull through two loops.
