Christmas Dinner Crochet Pattern!

I have no idea why, and now I have no idea what to do with it, but I went and made a entire Christmas dinner out of some very basic crochet shapes. And if you are equally as inclined to nonsense and fancy having a go, I'v gone and written up the whole pattern!

Complete with, in case you can't decipher it, Sprouts, stuffing, Roast potatoes, Pigs in Blankets, carrots and a somewhat cartoon turkey leg!

(I toyed with the idea of making some crochet gravy, but then I wondered if I might never stop until I have a crochet table and chairs)

As mentioned in the Brussel Sprout tutorial, this is a new science to me, so please be gentle if you find flaws in the pattern, and please feel free to improve!

Sprouts

For the Leaves

R1: Chain 2

R2: 6 sc into the 2nd chain from the hook (6)

R3: 2 sc into each stitch (12)

R4: 2 sc into the next stitch 1 sc into the next stitch x 6 (18)

Finish off leaving a tail for sewing and make 2 more

For the body

R1: Chain 2

R2: 6 sc into the 2nd chain from the hook (6)

R3: 2 sc into each stitch (12)

R4: 12 stitches around (12)

Now all you need to do is stitch on the 3 leaves you made to the middle centre of the ball, so that they are evenly scaced and overlapping, and your’e done!

Stuffing

You can use one speckled yarn, or as we did, hold together 3 different shades of brown and work them all at the same time.

R3: 2 sc into each stitch (12)

R4: (2 sc into the next stitch, 1 sc into the next stitch) x 6 (18)

R5: (2 sc into the next stitch, 1 sc into the next 2 sc) x 6 (24)

R6: 1 sc into each stitch around (24)

Leaving your second piece on the hook, hold the openings of both pieces together and sc all the way around the pair, joining them. Add 4 or 5 more rows of sc all the way around to make the protrusion, then stuff.

Insert the bone into the bottom opening of the leaf and using some brown wool, sew the end of the bone into place.
