Mystery Crochet Along with Mikey Who’s in Your Closet: Week 2

Last week, we started a mystery adventure where crocheters has an opportunity to get started by making the feet and legs. This week, we are moving up the character to create two sets of components. In cooperation with Mikey of The Crochet Crowd, we have Red Heart Yarns and Fresh Stitches participating.

This project has been graciously designed by Stacey Trock, Amigurumi Designer and Author. This is a character that you will fall in love with and kids will be lined up for you to make them one! It’s irresistibly cute!

Clue: I am determined to learn and explore. In the pecking order of life, I think I am the underdog digging to navigate my way through the sea of life.

Week 2: Nubbly Things, Hands and Arms (Make 2)
Today’s pattern, we will be focused on the special nubbly things, hands and arms. Once you have done the feet, mastering the hands are relatively easy as you know what you are doing. Let’s begin.

Nubbly Thing (Make 2)
•    With CC, ch 2.
•    Round 1: Sc 6 times in 2nd ch from hook. (6)
•    Round 2: Sc twice in each st. (12)
•    Rounds 3-4: Sc in each st. (12, 2 rounds) Fasten off with long tail.

Fingers First, Hand and Arm (Make 4 Fingers First)
•    With MC, ch 2.
•    Round 1: Sc 6 times in 2nd ch from hook. (6)
•    Round 2: Sc twice in each st. (12)
•    Rounds 3-6: Sc in each st. (12, 4 rounds) For three of the fingers, fasten off.

For the fourth finger, do not fasten off! You will continue to work this finger to join all three together for the hand.
•    Round 7: Sc in first 6 sts of the finger you are working on. Then, sc in 6 sts of round 6 of the second wing finger, then sc in all 12 sts in round 6 of the third finger. Sc in the remaining 6 sts on the second finger, then the final 6 sts of the first finger. (36)
Don’t fret! You’ve done this part before… it’s just like the feet! The fourth finger hasn’t been used yet. Just set him aside for a few rounds from now.
•    Rounds 8-10: Sc in each st. (36, 3 rounds)
•    Round 11: Sc in the next 18 sts of the hand, then sc in all 12 stitches in round 6 of the fourth finger, then the remaining 18 sts of the hand. (48)
