GABBY GHOST – PART 5

PUMPKIN

Make one.  Using colour (ORANGE), 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 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).

Rounds 9 – 11

Sc into next 48 sts (48 sc).

Round 12

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

Round 13

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

Round 14

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

Round 15

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

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

Round 16

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

Round 17

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

Round 18

*Inv sc2tog*, rep *.* 5 more times (6 sc), cut yarn leaving a 50 cm tail, use a sewing needle to sew end through FLO of each st and pull tight.

Helpful hint: we will use the tail to shape the pumpkin.

STALK

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

Round 1

Ch 1 (does not count as a st), sc 4 into mc, place st marker in 4th sc and continue to work in the round (4 sc).

Round 2

*Sc 2 into next st*, rep *.* 3 more times (8 sc).

Round 3 – BLO

Sc into BLO next 8 sts (8 BLO sc).

Rounds 4 – 6

Sc into next 8 sts (8 sc), at the end of round 6 cut yarn leaving a 20 cm.

Helpful hint: we will use the tail to attach the stalk to the pumpkin.

VINE

Make two.  One using colour (BRIGHT GREEN) and one using colour (APPLE GREEN).

Row 1

Ch 16, sc 3 into 2nd ch from hook, sc 3 into next 14 chs (45 sc), cut yarn leaving a 20 cm tail.

Helpful hint: we will use the tail to attach the vine to the pumpkin.

SHAPING THE PUMPKING AND ADDING THE STALK AND VINE

Using the tail end of the (ORANGE) yarn left after making the pumpkin stitch around the pumpkin in 8 sections going through the middle each time and pull tight to make the segments of a pumpkin, I did it twice so as to make it nice and secure, slip stitch the stalk to the centre of the top of the pumpkin and add the two vines.

BOBBY BAT – PART 5

INNER EAR

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

Helpful hint: we are working in rows.

Row 8 – joining inner ear with outer ear

Place the inner ear on top of the outer ear with the backs of round 7 facing inwards, ch 1 (does not count as a st), sc into the BLO of the 1st st of the inner ear AND the 1st st of the outer ear at the same time, repeat 17 more times, turn work slightly, (working both pieces together) ch 1, sc into next 7 rows, sc into the mc, sc into next 7 rows (33 sc), cut yarn leaving a 35 cm tail on one ear and a 50 cm tail on the other ear and finish off with a nj.

Helpful hint: we will use the tail end to attach the ears to the head in Part 6.  I will explain why one tail is longer than the other tail.

NOSE

Helpful hint: we are working in rounds.

Round 1

Ch 1 (does not count as a st), sc 8 into mc (8 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 3 into next st, sc into next st, sc 2 into next st, sc into next st*, rep *.* 1 more time (14 sc).

Round 3

*Sc 2 into next 4 sts, sc into next 3 sts*, rep *.* 1 more time (22 sc)
