Pattern Notes

Abbreviations (UK Terms):

Mc – magic circle

Dc – double crochet

Dc2tog - double crochet 2 sts together

Ch - chain

Tr- treble

 

Notes:

This pattern is made in several parts. The gnome, toadstools, snail and mouse is made using amigurumi technique. Loop stitch is used for the moss and greenery around the door.

 

Special Stitches:

Popcorn stitch- Work 5 trebles in the same stitch, remove the hook and insert in the first tr, place your hook through the active loop and pull through to create the popcorn.

 

Loop stitch - To form a loop stitch, wrap your yarn from front to back over the index finger of your yarn hand. Insert hook into the stitch and bring the yarn under the hook, keeping your finger in place.

Now hook your strand of yarn from behind your index finger and draw the loop through the stitch, still keeping your finger in place. You should now have two loops on your hook and a loop of yarn wrapped around your index finger. Gently pull the yarn until you have your desired loop length, pull loop to the front of wok. Yarn over hook as normal and pull through both loops on hook.

Your loop stitch is now formed and you can remove your finger.
