Hello Kitty & Pink Bow πŸŽ€

thumbnail-hello-kitty

Difficulty Level β˜… β˜… β˜…

This is a pattern for Hello Kitty.

The final result is around hand palm size (6x12 cm). The gauge used is 13 single crochet in row with length of 5 cm. Total yardage is around 5,5 meters.

I'm using crochet hook size 2,5 mm.

The materials we need are

  • 2 plastic eyes 5 mm (or you can embroider them)
  • Light polyester wool for stuffing the doll
  • Light or medium worsted yarn: pink, dark pink and white colours
  • Light or medium worsted yarn of black colour to sew the whiskers and yellow to sew the nose

Techniques that you need to know

  • Magic ring
  • Single crochet (Sc)
  • Increase (Inc)
  • Invisible Decrease / Decrease (Dec)
  • Double Crochet (Dc)
  • Slip stitch (Sl st)

Notes

It's recommended to use invisible decrease techniques to reduce the gap between stitch, it is like decrease but using only front loop of a stitch.

I’m using invisible decrease (decreasing using the front loop only), it is prettier because the gap is smaller rather than decreasing normally.

When the indication is grouped like this (Sc, Inc) * 6, it means to do a Single Crochet, then Increase in that order for 6 times.

For the FIRST leg: Close with a slip stitch to close the circle then cut off with some length left, set aside to use it later.
For the SECOND leg: Don’t cut off. See pictures attached for more clarity.
10From the second leg, add a stitch marker to help make 3 chains.

Join the first leg with a sc, continue sc in the first leg until reaching the 3 chains, do 3 sc in the side of the chains.

This results in 15 stitches. Then continue sc in the second leg and when arrived at 3 chains again, do 3 sc on the other side of the chains. Then we have a total of 30 stitches.
