GABBY GHOST – PART 3

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

Helpful hint: we are working in rounds.

Round 1

Ch 1 (does not count as a st), sc 6 into mc, place st marker into 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).

Rounds 5 – 9

Sc into next 24 sts (24 sc).

Round 10 – making the thumb

Make a 5 tr cl into next st, sc into next 23 sts (1 x 5 tr cl, 23 sc).

Helpful hint: when working the next round, you need to make a single crochet into the top of the 5 treble cluster stitch.

Round 11

Sc into next 22 sts, inv sc2tog (23 sc).

Round 12

Sc into next 21 sts, inv sc2tog (22 sc).

Round 13

Sc into next 20 sts, inv sc2tog (21 sc).

Round 14

Sc into next 19 sts, inv sc2tog (20 sc).

Round 15

Sc into next 18 sts, inv sc2tog (19 sc).

Round 16

Sc into next 17 sts, inv sc2tog (18 sc).

Round 17
Sc into next 13 sts so that you end up on the side opposite the thumb, ss into next st (13 sc), leave remaining sts unworked, cut yarn leaving a 20 cm tail to close the “wrist” section to keep the stuffing inside the hand.  We will do this after the next few rounds.

Round 18

Using colour (WHITE), join into last sc from round 17, ch 1 (does not count as a st), dc into same sp, dc into next 17 sts, ss into 1st st (18 dc).

Rounds 19 – 26

Ch 1 (does not count as a st), dc into same sp, dc into next 17 sts, ss into 1st st (18 dc).

Helpful hint: firmly stuff the hands after a few rounds.  To make a “wrist” and secure the stuffing into the hand, use the tail from round 17 to stitch the opening closed between rounds 17 and 18. Stitch the wrist area twice to make sure it is closed securely.  The arm is not stuffed so you can cut the yarn and weave in the end, then continue finishing the rounds up to round 26.

Round 27
Ch 1 (does not count as a st), sc into same sp, sc into next 17 sts, ss into 1st sc (18 sc), ss the opening closed in BLO, cut yarn leaving a 30 cm tail.

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

 

BOBBY BAT – PART 3

WINGS

Make two.  Using colour (BLACK), chain 21.

Helpful hint: we are working in rows.

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 loose otherwise the 1st stitch in each row will “pull” down.  Make the chain 1 longer for the half double crochet and double crochet stitches for this section.

Helpful hint: you can gently block the wings now so that the picot stitches stand out nicely.
