Half a Zombie

So this is something I am really proud of. I've just started crocheting my own creations and this is the first pattern I have written. I hope it's not too hard to understand.

Half a Zombie Key Chain Pattern:

Head:

To begin, chain 2

Rnd. 1: 6 sc in second chain from hook- 6

Rnd. 2: 2 sc in each sc around- 12

Rnd. 3: *2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc*- 18

Rnd. 4: *2 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc* -24

Rnd. 5: *2 sc in next sc, sc in next 3 sc*- 30

Rnd. 6: *2 sc in next sc, sc in next 4 sc*- 36

At some point in line 7, attach pink yarn and do a few sc and change back to gray.

Do this in lines 8 and 9 as well. I did 5 pink sc in rnd. 7, 4 in rnd. 8, and 2 in rnd. 9

Rnd. 7 -11: sc in each sc around- 36

Rnd. 12: *sc2tog, sc in next 4 sc*- 30

Attach hair and key chain ring

Attach safety eyes between round 9 and 10

Rnd. 13: *sc2tog, sc in next 3 sc*- 24

Rnd. 14: *sc2tog, sc in next 2 sc*- 18

Sew in details; mouth and blood.

Rnd. 15: *sc2tog, sc in next sc*- 12

Rnd. 16-19: sc in each sc around- 12

Stuff the head

Rnd. 20: 2 sc in each sc around- 24

Rnd. 21: *2 sc in next sc, sc in next 3 sc*- 30

Rnd. 22: Change to shirt color *2 sc in next sc, sc in next 4 sc*- 36

Rnd. 23: sc in each sc around- 36

Rnd. 24: Begin working on the arms. Sc in each of the next sc. Sc through both thicknesses. This creates an arm gap of 7 sc. 10 sc, sc through both thicknesses creating another arm gap. Sc in next 4 sc.

Rnd. 25-29: sc in each sc around- 18

Rnd. 30: This creates a slightly tattered look to the shirts bottom edge. Stitching once into each sc: 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 1 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc, 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1dc, 1hdc, 1 sc, 1 sc, 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 1 dc. 1 hdc, 1 sc- 18

Rnd. 31: This creates a slightly tattered look to the shirts bottom edge. Stitching once into each sc: 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 1 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc, 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1dc, 1hdc, 1 sc, 1 sc, 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 1 dc. 1 hdc, 1 sc- 18

Rnd. 32: Switching to skin tone 1 bphdc in each sc around. -18

Rnd. 33 and 34: sc in each sc around. -18

Rnd. 35 Change to blood color and bpc in each sc around. -18

Rnd. 36: *sc2tog, 1 sc* - 12

At this point I stuff the body I sew both sides together leaving tails of yarn (blood) and sew it closed.

Arms:

Rnd. 1: reattach the shirt color. 7 sc around- 7

Rnd 2: 7 sc around- 7

Change to skin tone

Rnd 3-8: sc in each sc around- 7

Rnd 9: sc2tog, sc in next sc until closed

For the second arm I just winged it. You can keep it whole or have a severed limb. Change to red and sc around- 7

My bone is about 12 chain stitches. I tied a knot at the end and sewed the arm shut securing the “bone” in place.
