Amanda - The Curlie Snowgirl




The snow outside is snowly falling reminding of the comming Christmas and bringing holiday mood. It is the perfect day to stay at warm in home and make more Christmas decoration.

This little snowgirl has plenty of curls and a scarf and will make everyone smile - it is fast to make and uses basic stitches only. There is only one downside - you can't make only one as everyone who see it want it :)

Yarn: DK, 100% Cotton, I used Drops Muskat

Stitches used: sc, ss, mc, sc2tog
Finished size: 3.5in/8cm tall
Colors: white, green, multicolored for the hair, small amount black and red (for the arms and mouth)
Materials: apart of the yarn you will need also small amount of stuffing, amigurumi eyes, one small button for the scarf

Abbreviations:
sc - single crochet
ss - slip stitch
mc - magic circle or magic ring
sc2tog - single crochet together




Pattern:

Body
Round 1: Start with mc and sc 8 in the magic circle.
Round 2: Ch1, sc in the same st, 2 sc in each st (16st)
Round 3: Ch 1, sc in the same st, *sc in next st, 2 sc in next st*, repeat * - *, end with sc in the last st and join with ss. (24 st)
Round 4-8: Ch 1, sc in each st around, end with ss. (24 st)
Round 9: Ch1, sc in same st, *sc2tog, sc in next st*, repeat * - *, end with sc in the last st and ss in the ch 1 (16 st)
Round 10: Ch 1, sc in the next st, sc2tog in each 2 st, end with ss in ch 1 (8 st)

The down part is made, fill it with amigurumi stuffing.

Round 11: Ch1, sc in the same st, 2 sc in each st (16st)
Round 12-14: Ch 1, sc in each st around, end with ss (16st)
Round 15: Ch 1, sc in the next st, sc2tog in each 2 st, end with ss in ch 1 (8 st)

Add eyes, fill with filling.
Round 16: Ch 1, sc in the next st, sc2tog in each 2 st, end with ss in ch 1

The body is made. Do not close the head yet.

Hair: Join yarn for the hair and ch 16, sc in second st from hook, 2 sc in each chain, ss in the same st where you started the chain. Repeat one more time but ss in the next st. 

Repeat for each of the next 3 st.
You will have 8 curls done. Now make one more row of curls only on the back part of the snowgirl - I have added 8 more randomly spread.

Nose: With orange ch 2, ss in the second st from hook, attach the nose just below the eyes.




You may close the top of the head now - just sew what is left from the hole with white or the hair color yarn.

Scarf: Ch 40, sc in the second ch from hook, sc in each chain back. Ch 1 and turn, sc in each st.

The rest part is sewn. Sew the mouth with red yarn - it may take few tries if you don't have much experience (just don't give up). Make the buttons with black yarn in the form of cross, then sew the arms. 

Finally put the scarf on and sew it with a button.

You are ready! Hm, well, not exactly - now make few more snowgirls as everyone will want them :)

Happy holidays! If you like my patterns check all of them in Ravelry.

Simply Charming Headband





Not having enough time for all the gifts you want to make? 

Try this pattern - headbands are faster to make than hats, can be made in different sizes and width, different yarn type - to either keep warm or simply to keep the hair away. Choose different colors or simply add flower or other embelishment to make them look exceptional.

This pattern uses US crochet terms.

YarnDK (11 wpi) , I used Drops Cotton Merino
Hook size: 4 mm/ G (hook size conversion chart)
Stitches used: ss, sc, dc, ch
Finished size:  Lenght 20.5in/52 cm, width 4in/10 cm. Check the notes in the pattern how to decrease/increase the starting chain to make for kids

Abbreviations:
ss - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
dc - double crochet
ch - chain
* - * Repeat the pattern between the * as described





Notes:
- The black and the colored part are done separately, you will need stitch marker or anything to stop unraveling one part while you are working on the other 
- Cluster is 3 dc in the same st, ch2 in the start of the colored row counts as dc

Pattern:

Adult size
Round 1: With black ch 90 (or any multiple of 3), join with ss in the first chain. Be careful to not twist the chain. Ch 1, sc in same st, sc around end with ss in first ch.

If you are having problems with the starting chain you may do this trick:
- Ch 91, do not join but sc in second hook from st, sc till the end, now join with ss in the opposite sc. It is easier to not twist the starting chain but you will have to sew a little at the end in the starting chain.
Or
- You may start with sc foundation chain

Round 2:
Ch 4, dc in same st. Skip 2st, * [dc, ch, dc] in the same st, skip 2 st*. Repeat * - * around, end with ss in the top of the starting chain. Put a marker in the last worked st and remove the hook. 

Round 3: [Coloured round] Join new colour (red/yellow/green or whatever you want) in the ch space between the last two dc from the previous round. Ch 3 (counts as dc), 2 dc in the same st, * work 3dc (cluster) in the next chain space*, repeat * - * till the end. SS in the top of the ch 3 from the start of the round. Put the stitch marker here and remove the hook. Continue the next row with black yarn.  Round 4: [Black round]: With the hook draw the black loop (from the last worked black stitch where the marker was) so it is between two clusters of 3 dc from the coloured row and ch 4, dc in the same st. Skip the next coloured cluster from the previous row, * [dc, ch, dc] between the clusters of 3 dc from the previous row, skip the next cluster *. Repeat * - * till the end of the round, end with ss in the starting chain. Work only in the black stitches from the previous black round. Get the marker from the last worked stitch of the coloured row and put it here. Continue next row with the coloured yarn.

Round 5: [Coloured round]: With the hook draw the colored loop from the last worked coloured round so it is in the space between 2 dc of the black round. Insert the hook in the colored yarn and continue this row with coloured yarn. Ch 3, 2 dc in the same space. *Skip to the next chain space and work 3 dc*, repeat * - * till the end of the round, ss in the top of the ch 3 from the start of the row. Put the stitch marker here and continue working with black.

Round 6, 8, 10, 12, 14: Repeat round 4

Round 7, 9, 11, 13: Repeat round 5

If you need to increase the widtth continue with few more repeats of round 4 and 5.

Round 15: Continue with black. Ch 1, sc in the same st, now work 1 sc in each st, 2 sc in the ch space between the dc. You should end up with  the same number of stitches like in the starting chain. 

Round 16: Ch 1, sc in same st, sc around. End with ss in starting chain.


Flower: If you want to add the flower from the red headband check the pattern here.
