Barbabo - The Artist ★free pattern★








Yarn: Müller Super Preis, 2x 50g black
                                          a bit of grey, white and brown for colour palette and brush
Hook Size: Nr. 3

Abbrevations (US Terms)
V: increase (The letter V looks like the crochet symbol for increasing!)
A: decrease (The letter A nearly looks like the crochet symbol for decreasing!)
x6: repeat 6 times
sc: single crochet
ch: chain

Special stitch: The loop stitch.

Notes
"  Crochet in continuous spiral rounds.
"  Use the invisible decrease (only the front loops of both stitches).
"  On the contrary, on the parts with the loop stitch you can decrease as usual.
"  I always split my increases and decreases.
If there is an even number of stitches between the increases or decreases, for example (14, V) x6, - work 7, V, (14, V) x5, 7 instead.
Rows with an odd number of stitches between increases or decreases are worked as usual, for example (5, V) x6.
"  Stuff as you go.
"  You can use any yarn but use a smaller hook than suggested to avoid holes after filling.

    1. =)) You still remember those details? When I bought die DVD for my kids, I couldn't remember anything except the beginning song! I guess I was 5 years old when I always watched the Barbapapas on TV - a long time! =)
