Out of this World MCAL | Part 1


MMCAL-Banner

Ooo I’m so excited to get started on my first mini mystery amigurumi crochet-along, if you missed the announcement about the CAL and want to check out the general CAL info and material details you can find it all here. Although I’ve done CAL’s before (2015 & 2016) this is my first time trying to design an amigurumi for us to crochet together – shall we get started 😊

Yarn: 

I have used three different colours in this pattern but you can use any colour you wish though I do suggest that sections in YARN B are best made in white. Yarn suggested colours for each particular piece will be referred in this pattern as:

  • YARN A – Any colour you wish
  • YARN B e.g. White
  • YARN C – Any colour you wish

For this design I used double knit/8 ply/yarn weight #3 however the pattern will also work in worsted /aran/ yarn weight #4 with a larger hook such as a 4mm (US size G) – your finished project will just be bigger!

Abbreviations: 

  • rnd = rounds
  • beg. = beginning
  • rem. = remaining
  • st(s) = stitch(es)
  • sp = space
  • sl st = slip stitch
  • ch(s) = chain  
  • dc/sc= UK double crochet / US single crochet
  • dc2tog/sc2tog= UK double crochet two stitches together / US single crochet two stitches together
  • BLO – Back Loop Only

Pattern Notes:

Many sections of this CAL are also worked without joining in continuous rounds by placing a stitch marker in either the the top of the first st to mark start of rnd.

Stitch Guidance:

  • Slip Stitch (sl st): Insert hook in st indicated, yarn over and pull through all loops.
  • Double Crochet/Single Crochet (dc/sc): Insert hook in st indicated and pull up a loop (two loops on hook), yarn over, pull through both loops on hook.
  • UK Double Crochet/US Single Crochet 2 sts together (dc2tog/sc2tog): Insert hook in st indicated and pull up a loop (two loops on hook), insert hook in next st, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through three loops on hook.
  • Back Loop Only (BLO): Insert your hook underneath the back loop of the stitch only and make the stitch as indicated.
