My mummy - 168 of 365

Time for another attempt at a unique crochet pattern. And I think it turned out well!

Crochet mummy
Only one color needed. I used Brown, but green or a varigated brown-green would work to.


I also like to leave a long tail to each body part for stitching together.

Use whatever supplies you'd like, but I used:
  • Size G hook


  • 1 skein Red Heart Soft chocolate


  • Polyester stuffing


  • Yarn needle


  • Cheesecloth


  • Googly eyes (I used two different sizes


  • Glue


  • Head:

    Rnd 1: 8 sc in a magic ring; sl st to the 1st sc; ch 1 (8sc)
    Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc; sl st to ch 1; ch 1 (16sc)
    Rnd 3: *1 sc in next sc; 2 sc in next sc*; sl st to ch 1; ch 1 (24sc)
    Rnd 4: *1 sc in next 2 sc; 2 sc in next sc*; sl st to ch 1; ch 1 (36sc)
    Rnd 5-19: *1 sc in next sc* sl st to ch 1; ch 1(36sc)
    Rnd 20: *1 sc in next 4 sc; sc2tog (30sc)
    Stuff and stitch closed.

    Body:
    Rnd 1: ch 16; sc in 2nd ch from hook; sc in next 14 ch; 2 sc in next ch (the end); turn and sc in next 15 ch. Do not sl st to start. (32sc)
    Rnd 2: 2 sc in next sc; sc in next 16sc; 2 sc in the next ch (the end); turn and sc in next 16 sc. Do not sl st to start. (36sc)
    Rnd 3-17: sc around (36sc)
    Stuff and stitch closed.

    Arm: (make 2)Rnd 1: 8 sc in a magic ring; sl st to the 1st sc; ch 1 (8sc)
    Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc; sl st to ch 1; ch 1 (16sc)
    Rnd 3-13: sc around (16sc)
    Stuff and stitch closed.

    Leg: (make 2)Rnd 1: 8 sc in a magic ring; sl st to the 1st sc; ch 1 (8sc)
    Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc; sl st to ch 1; ch 1 (16sc)
    Rnd 3: *1 sc in next sc; 2 sc in next sc*; sl st to ch 1; ch 1 (24sc)
    Rnd 4-14: sc around (24sc)
    Stuff and stitch closed.

    Using a yarn needle, stitch body parts together.
    Cut strips of cheesecloth, about 1.5" wide, and wrap around body as you like. I dabbed some glue at the edges to make sure it sticks. Glue or stitch on googly eyes.
