I'm Back!




Lil' Zombie Stress Ball

***

DIFFICULTY: Shamefully easy

***

Materials= 2 colours of yarn (1 for body, 1 for braaaaains), 2 safety eyes, embroidery thread

Hook = Whatever you like! The smaller the hook & yarn the smaller your Zombie. I used a 3.5mm for this and it makes the little guy palm sized.

CH = Chain
SC = Single Crochet
ST= Stitch
FO = Finish Off
DEC = Decrease

***

Body

Foundation = Magic ring 6
Round 1= 2 SC in each ST around
Round 2= 1 SC in the next ST then SC twice in next ST - do this till end of round
Round 3= 1 SC in the next 2 ST then SC twice in next ST - do this till end of round
Round 4= 1 SC in the next 3 ST then SC twice in next ST - do this till end of round
Round 5= 1 SC in the next 4 ST then SC twice in next ST - do this till end of round
Rounds 6 -16= SC around ((Don’t forget to stuff the foot!))
Round 17= 1 SC in the next 4 ST then DEC - do this till end of round
Round 18= 1 SC in the next 3 ST then DEC - do this till end of round
((Add in safety eyes & stuffing here! Also stiches your lil guy a mouth with the embroidery thread.))
Round 19= 1 SC in the next 2 ST then DEC - do this till end of round
Round 20= 1 SC in the next 1 ST then DEC - do this till end of round
FO

***

Arms (make 2)

Foundation = Magic ring 6
Round 1-7= 2 SC in each ST around
FO and stuff.

***

Braaaaaaaaaaaains

There is no pattern for this, but the idea is to make a very jagged, flat swatch of fabric that you can sew to the head of your zombie. Tips: change between chaining one at the end of your round and not.

***

Sew the arms to the side of the Zombie. Now using the same colour thread you made your brains with, sew the brains to the top of you Zombie's head - just before you finish off sewing on the brains stuff them with some fiberfill! That way they are extra buldgey :D.

What do we want? Braaaaaainnnnnsssss....
When do we want it? Braaaaaainnnnnsssss....
