Frankenstein Scrubby

Frankenstein scrubby

September is here, so I feel safe posting Halloween designs. I know some people get annoyed at stores who put their holiday merchandise out too early, but as crafters, we need it early! Am I right? There are so many things to make and never enough time. I usually start making Christmas gifts in January. In fact, I buy gift wrap and boxes in the after-Christmas sales. That way I can wrap the presents as I finish them and not have to worry about wrapping them all in December. Anyway, one of my favorite Halloween icons is Frankenstein, so today’s free pattern is a scrubby. This little guy only took me only an hour to crochet. Because they were out of stock of the Red Heart Scrubby Yarn in the colors I needed, I went to Hobby Lobby and got Yarn Bee Scrub-ology. This yarn is a bit softer than the RH and more suitable (in my opinion) to scrubbies for the skin rather than for the kitchen. I’m looking forward to coming up with a few more scrubby designs in the future.

Scrubby measures 3.5″ x 3″.

Frankenstein’s Monster Scrubby

Frankenstein scrubby

Materials:

Yarn Bee Scrub-ology cotton yarn – 15 yards green

Cotton worsted yarn – 5 yards black

Size G (4.0 mm) crochet hook

Yarn needle

Directions:

Row 1: With green yarn, ch 13, sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across (12 sc).

Rows 2-3: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st. Ch 3 at the end of Row 3.

Row 4: Sc in 2nd ch, sc in next ch, sc in next 12 sts, work 2 chainless foundation sc (16 sc).

Row 5: Ch 1, sc in each st (16 sc)

Row 6: Ch 1, turn, sl st over first 2 sts, sc in next 16 sts, leave remaining 2 sts unworked (16 sc).

Rows 7-8: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st. Fasten off green.

Rows 9-10: With black yarn, ch 1, turn, sc in each st.

Row 11: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st with 2 sc in last st. Turn to crochet down the side, sc in end of next 2 rows, change to green, sc down side and around ear with 2 sc in end of Row 1. Sc in each unused loop of Row 1 with 2 sc in last loop. Sc across opposite side and ear, changing to black yarn for last 2 rows. Sc in same st as first st of Row 11. Join with sl st. Fasten off black. Weave in all ends.

EYES:

With black yarn, ch 2 (or magic circle), work 5 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Join with sl st. Fasten off leaving 6” length. Sew eyes to face at Rows 6-7.

Mouth:

Use black yarn to embroider mouth.

Preemie Crochet Challenge 2021

We’re coming to the end of the Preemie Crochet Challenge with only 2 days left. Each day during August, Sunflower Cottage Crochet has featured a new baby crochet pattern by an indie designer. For each pattern you download, we are asking for one item to be donated to a charity for preemies or hospital of your choice. I am honored to have one of my designs selected as the featured pattern today.

HOW DOES THE CHALLENGE WORK?

  1. Each day at 8am London time, the blog post will be updated with that day’s featured pattern.
  2. I will give you the code and links you need. If the designer has a blog, you will be directed there for more information about the pattern; if not you will be taken directly to Ravelry.
  3. You will decide if you would like that pattern.
  4. By accepting the free PDF download, you are pledging to donate at least one made item from that pattern to a Preemie charity/organization/NICU/family of your choosing.
  5. The patterns below will be categorized as the event progresses to make it easier for you to establish which patterns are still available, which are available free on the designers blog, and which are now only paid patterns. The first pattern will be the featured pattern for that day.

To see a slideshow of featured designs, click here: https://youtu.be/JMx0HEveojc

Today’s featured pattern is SWEET PREEMIE HAT BY RAFAMUSSA DESIGNS

 

As part of year 2 of the Preemie Crochet Challenge 2021, hosted by Sunflower Cottage Crochet, you can get a FREE PDF copy of the Sweet Preemie Hat! The pattern comes in sizes from preemie – 1 year old. This design will be available free with the coupon code through August 31.

Preemie Crochet Challenge 2021

Helen Wilkinson from Sunflower Cottage Crochet is hosting her Preemie Crochet Challenge again this year. Each day a new baby crochet pattern by an indie designer will be featured. For each pattern you download, we are asking for one item to be donated to a charity for preemies or hospital of your choice. I am honored to have one of my designs selected as the featured pattern today.

HOW DOES THE CHALLENGE WORK?

  1. Each day at 8am London time, the blog post will be updated with that day’s featured pattern.
  2. I will give you the code and links you need. If the designer has a blog, you will be directed there for more information about the pattern; if not you will be taken directly to Ravelry.
  3. You will decide if you would like that pattern.
  4. By accepting the free PDF download, you are pledging to donate at least one made item from that pattern to a Preemie charity/organization/NICU/family of your choosing.
  5. The patterns below will be categorized as the event progresses to make it easier for you to establish which patterns are still available, which are available free on the designers blog, and which are now only paid patterns. The first pattern will be the featured pattern for that day.
