DMC crochet frankenstein pattern

Crochet Frankenstein Halloween Candy Basket

29 September, 2015

We have a thing for making every detail ultra-cute. So when our DIY Artisans from DMC Spain came up with this crochet pattern using our new chunky Natura XL yarn we were psyched. We have it available for you ready-made and we are providing the pattern below so you can make it yourself. Grab your kiddies or make this for yourself and hit the streets - it's trick-or-treat Commonthread style!

Here is the tutorial:

Materials

DMC#1-0240

Note: The number inside the parentheses ( ) is the number of stitches you should have at the end of that row. Finish each round with a slip stitch and 1 chain.

Abbreviations:

R = Round, sc= single crochet, ch = chain, sl st = slip stitch, sts = stitches

With Natura XL 83 (green)

Magic Ring: slip knot, ch1, 5 sc in slip knot and pull the ring to close (6sts).

R 2: 2 sc in each st around (12 sts).
R 3: [2 sc in next st, sc in next st] six times (18 st)
R 4: [2 sc in next st, sc in next 2 st] six times (24 st) R 5: [2 sc in next st, sc in next 3 st] six times (30 st) R 6: [2 sc in next st, sc in next 4 st] six times (36 st) R 7: [2 sc in next st, sc in next 5 st] six times (42 st)

If you have a bigger bucket keep increasing 6 stitches every round until you reach the bottom diameter of the bucket. If you have a smaller bucket, stop increasing when you reach the bottom diameter.

R 8-10: 42 sc.(42 st)
R 11: [2sc in next st, sc in next 6 st] six times (48 st). R 12-15: 48 sc. (48 st)

Hair
R 16-17: with green, sc in next 24 sc, with black sc in next 24 sc. (48 sts)

R 18: With Green sc in next 25 sts, with black sc in next 23 sts. (48 sts)

R 19: With Green sc in next 24 sts, with black sc in next 23 sts, with Green sc in last st. (48 sts)

R 20: With green sc in next 23 sts, with black sc in next 25 sts. (48 sts)

Fasten off Green. Work the next few rows in black only.

R 21-24: 48 sc (48 st)

If your pot has a bigger diameter you should increase 6 stitches when the diameter starts to grow. We recommend working with the bucket next to so that you can fit the cover onto the bucket every now and then.

Eye (make 2)
Magic Ring: slip knot, ch1, 5 sc in slip knot and pull the ring to close (6sts).

Stitch eyes in place. Using the black yarn stitch mouth and scar. You can add as many scars as you like. Weave in the ends of the black Natura XL when you have attached all the pieces. Remove the handle. Place the crochet cover on the pot. Put the handles back in place.

You have an adorable Halloween ready candy basket for your favorite treats!
