GABBY GHOST – PART 1

HEAD

Make one.  Using colour (WHITE), make a magic circle.

Helpful hint: we are working in rounds.

Round 1 – top of head
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 (or use a running 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).

Helpful hint: with my patterns, I usually always start with an increase in the 1st stitch, so if your increase stitch falls in the 1st stitch of the increase stitch from the last round, your stitch count should be correct.

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).

Round 7
*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 5 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (42 sc).

Round 8
*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 6 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (48 sc).

Round 9
*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 7 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (54 sc).

Round 10
*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 8 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (60 sc).

Rounds 11 – 22
Sc into next 60 sts (60 sc).

Round 23
*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 8 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (54 sc).

Helpful hint: insert the safety eyes between round 20 and 21; about 8 visible stitches apart.  If you prefer to embroider your eyes, you can do this when the head is finished.

Rounds 24 – 27
Sc into next 54 sts (54 sc).

Round 28
*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 7 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (48 sc).

Round 29
*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 6 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (42 sc).

Round 30
*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 5 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (36 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 31
*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 4 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (30 sc).

Round 32
*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 3 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (24 sc).

Round 33
*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 2 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (18 sc).

Round 34
*Inv sc2tog, sc into next st*, rep *.* 5 more times (12 sc).

Round 35 – bottom of head
*Inv sc2tog*, rep *.* 5 more times (6 sc), cut yarn, use a sewing needle to sew end through FLO of each st, pull tight and weave in end.

Helpful hint: this is the bottom of the head where we will attach it to the body in Part 6.

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 5 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (36 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.
