This is my world and I intend to make it beautiful!

I intend to make this world a little more beautiful each day. I think that there is too much ugly in the world and people need to focus more on the beauty that surrounds them.

Christmas Poo

When I first made this my husband laughed and commented "So what, you made a piece of talking poo!".

Here is the pattern for those of you that want to make your own talking poo!

Abbreviations used:
Chain-ch
Single Crochet-sc
Single crochet two together-sc2tog (single crochet decrease)
Finish Off-fo

This was made using some random worsted weight yarn and a G hook. Some other supplies you might need are glue, felt, pipe cleaners, and poly fil.

Poo Pattern:

Start with a magic ring or chain 2.
Round 1: 6 sc into 2nd chain from hook or into magic ring. (6 sc)
Round 2: 2sc into each sc (12 sc)
Round 3: * sc into first sc, and then 2 sc into next sc * repeat from * around. (18 sc)
Round 4-10: sc into each sc (18 sc)
Round 11: * sc into first sc, sc2tog * repeat from * around. (12 sc)

Finish off and weave in ends.

  5. I had to modify the hat to make it more character specific. Here is what I did. Enjoy.

    Still using the G hook and Red Heart yarn.

    Foundation (white): Ch 20, sl st in 1st st, ch 1.

    Row 1: sc 20 (starting in loop after your chain 1), sl st in 1st st, ch 1.

    Row 2: sc 20, insert hook into 1st st and change colors to red. Ch 1.

    Row 3-4: repeat row 1

    Row 5: sc 5, sc2tog, sc 4, sc2tog, sc 3, sc2tog, sc 3, sl st in 1st, ch 1.

    Row 6: sc 4, sc2tog, sc 4, sc2tog, sc 5, sl st in 1st, ch 1.

    Row 7: sc 3, sc2tog, sc 3, sc2tog, sc 3, sc2tog, sc 2, sl st in 1st, ch 1.

    Row 8: sc 2, sc2tog, sc 2, sc2tog, sc 2, sc2tog, sc 1, sl st in 1st, ch 1.

    Row 9: sc 1, sc2tog, sc 1, sc2tog, sc1, sc2tog, sc 1, sl st in 1st, ch 1.

    Row 10+: now sc around without joining until this part of the hat reaches twice the height of the hat.

    Attach a small white pompom ( I used the fork method with only 20 loops around). Use red yarn to attach the long part of the hat to just above the white rim.
