Melly Teddy Ragdoll Calliope Cow Part 1

Melly Teddy Ragdoll Calliope Cow Part 1

HEAD

Make one.  Using colour (PRINCESS PINK) yarn, make a magic circle.

Helpful hint: we are working in rounds.

Round 1 – nose
Ch 1 (does not count as a st), sc 6 into mc, place st marker in 6th sc and continue to work in the round (6 sc).

Helpful hint: move the stitch marker and place in the last stitch of each round; this will help keep your stitch count correct and help with round counting. Because we are working quite tightly in the round, I weave my beginning tail in whilst working round 2.

Round 2

*Sc 2 into next st*, rep *.* 5 more times (12 sc).

Round 3

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next st*, rep *.* 5 more times (18 sc).

Round 4

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 2 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (24 sc).

Round 5

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 3 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (30 sc).

Round 6

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 4 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (36 sc).

Rounds 7 – 9

Sc into next 36 sts (36 sc).

Round 10 – change colour at end of round

Helpful hint: refer to the Preamble about how to change colours.

Sc into next 36 sts, (colour change to WHITE)  (36 sc).  Cut (PRINCESS PINK) yarn leaving a 15 cm tail.

Helpful hint: work in the (PRINCESS PINK) yarn tail whilst doing round 11, and work in the (WHITE) starting tail whilst doing the round 12.

Rounds 11 -13

Sc into next 36 sts (36 sc).

Round 14

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 5 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (42 sc).

Round 30

Helpful hint:   I like to use the invisible single crochet decrease technique (inv sc2tog), but you can use whichever decrease technique you like.  The instructions on how to do the invisible decrease will be found under abbreviations in the Preamble.

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 9 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (60 sc).

Round 31

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 8 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (54 sc).

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 4 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (30 sc).

Round 36

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 3 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (24 sc).

Helpful hint: you can stuff the head now, and then just add more stuffing in before you close off after the last round, the head should be firm, be careful not to overstuff.

Round 37

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

Round 38

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next st*, rep *.* 5 more times (12 sc).

Round 39  – back of head

*Inv sc2tog*, rep *.* 5 more times (6 sc), cut yarn, use sewing needle to sew end through FLO of each st, pull tight and weave in end.

Helpful hint: we will attach the head to the body in Part 6.
