Standing stitches– a standing stitch can only be used when beginning with a new yarn, for example if your next row will begin with a htr, instead of sl st to the first st and working 2 ch you can begin directly with a htr as follows: place a slip knot on your hook, yrh, then insert the hook into the first st, yrh, bring the working yarn through, yrh, draw through all 3 loops, you have now started your row with a htr stitch rather than chains, this can be applied to all stitches, but remember you can only use it when attaching a new yarn to your work.


Wonderland Teac Cosy Part 2

Part one can be found here – Wonderland Tea Cosy Part 1

With Pumpkin 766 and 4mm hook join yarn to the bottom middle of face with a standing dc, when attaching the yarn, the head will be upside down, but for the following rnds, turn face right side up as you will be crocheting the collar up towards the face.

Row 1: Dc around base of face. Turn, and also rotate head as previously stated. St count will vary based on how much you needed to overlap the front of face under the spout.

Row 2: 1 ch, dc in BLO around. Turn.

Row 3: 1 ch, dc around. Turn.

Row 4: As Row 3.

Row 5: 1 ch, 1 dc2tog, dc across to last 2 sts, 1 dc2tog. Turn.

Rows 6-7: As Row 5.

Row 8: 3 ch (counts as first st), 1 tr in first st, 1 tr, 2 htr, dc across to last 4 sts, 2 htr, 1 tr, 2 tr into last st. Do not fasten off. Do not turn.

Now dc evenly down the front collar using the row-edge sts (see pictures), then dc evenly up the other side of the collar in the same manner. Fasten off. Weave in ends.

Row 1: Starting in 2nd ch from hook, dc across. Turn. 10 dc

Rows 2-4, 1 ch, dc across. Turn.

Once you have completed the back loops, rep Row 2 using the front loops (40 strands), you might get a bit lost and confused as to where you are but just go with the flow!

Now you are going to attach the hair to the top of the head (see picture).
