Movie Night – 18” doll :pinterest

Can we all remember back to when we would put our hair up in curlers for Saturday then settle in for the Friday Night Fright Night :eek movie? Get the popcorn and where's the comfy ghan?

Special Stitch:
ehdc: extended half double crochet

It is a technique wherein you pull through only 1loop on your stitch at first and then make you stitch as you normally would. It can apply to sc, dc etc.

Here is a vid tutorial for Esc

With white and 4mm hook. The popcorn is worked in a continuous round. Don’t worry about the starting point… just have at it.

Ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook. In continuous stitches work [sc, tr] in each stitch OR [sc, dc]. Work in a completely random manner so that you get an effect of some sts (trebles) being higher than others. when it is large enough to fit in your bowl you just quit. *

I filled my bowl with leftover yarn and then just place the popcorn on top – no attaching. * you could break off leaving a long tail and stitch the popcorn in place (over stuffing) by stitching it along the white row of sts.

The ‘afghan’ is the Wheel Lattice square from Dayna’s crochet.

movie 011.jpg


I did make a couple of changes.

. I used a ch 3 on row 3 instead of the ch 5.
. I used a ch 3 instead of ch 5 on row 6.
. I made 4 rows of ch 3 mesh at the end
. My final row was 2dc in ever ch 3 space and [2dc, ch 1, 2 dc] in the corners. My square ended up at 16 inches.

I do not have a problem with people/groups using my patterns to make a little extra money by physically making them and selling the items they make.

However, I do not permit the selling of my patterns for money. I have once given permission for a booklet to be made of them for a charitable sale and I may do so again *if I am asked* and if it is for a church, charity or school type group. But first you have to ask.

Furthermore, If you choose to use my patterns as a money maker, I do not permit my images to be used for any advertizing of your work. You must make your own item and photograph that. These images are as much a part of my Web image as a designer as the patterns are and I reserve that use to myself alone.

Oh boy does that bring back some memories. Usually ended up with no curlers the next morning, cause they hurt to lay on.

This is so cute.:hook

wow, I'm always amazed by your creativeness. :) does it take you long to crochet an outfit? do you wake up in the middle of the night with ideas of new ones? I really need to stop being a slowpoke and get these outfit done!
