Billy the Rain Drop!!
A tutorial/pattern… whatever you wanna call it ;)
Hey you guys out there in the blogging world, this here is Amanda (I sound country there lol) this is my very first Crochet Tutorial!! So if you have problems following it, I’m sorry and you can contact me with questions by commenting below. And if you manage to make Billy, please send me a picture!!! Also, I am making this pattern assuming that you already know how to crochet, so please don’t ask me what a magic loop is. Google it. Also, it is worked in the round, so when i say row. i really mean round... im to lazy to change it lol. The entire thing is worked in single crochet.
You Will Need:
A yarn needle (dull pointed needle)
A stitch marker
Crochet hook, (one size smaller then what your yarn calls for)
About ½ an oz of stuffingButtons, google eyes or stuffed animal eyes
(supplies you need... sorry for the crappy quality. i don't have a camera.)
NOW STOP.... PATTERN TIME!! ;)
Row 1; make a magic loop and single crochet 4 stitches.
Row 2&3: increase every single crochet
Row 4&5-ish: crochet two, and increase in every third stitch. do this until you have a total of 24 stitches. you will probably get 24 in the middle of the row and that is OK just make sure you keep count
Row 6-12: single crochet all stitches once, do this for the next six rows or until your piece measures 2 1/2 inches tall when its sitting flat
Row 13: add your stitch marker now if you haven't already. just add it to the stitch you just finished. it really doesn't matter where that stitch is.so you want to crochet 5, decrease 1. repeat across row
Row 14:move your stitch marker directly up one, then crochet 4., decrease one. repeat across row.
NOW YOU WANT TO STOP AND ADD YOUR EYES, EMBROIDER THE MOUTH WITH THE BLACK AND STUFF IT!!!!!!!
Row 15: move up marker, crochet three decrease one and repeat across row
Row 16 &17: move up marker crochet 2 decrease one. repeat across rows
Row 18-? decrease every stitch until you have one left. cut yarn and pull through final loop. weave end into body.
