Crochet-a-long: Padma part 3


We're in the home stretch now...
OK, ready for part 3?

EARS(make 2)
Start with a magic circle into which 6 SC are made.
R1: INCR1 in each stitch across. (12 sts)
R2: *SC 1, INCR1 in next st* repeat across. (18 sts)
R3: *SC 2, INCR1 in next st* repeat across. (24 sts)
R4: *SC 3, INCR1 in next st* repeat across. (30 sts)
R5-9: SC across.
R10: *SC 3, DCR1 over next 2 sts* repeat. (24 sts)
R11: *SC 2, DCR1 over next 2 sts* repeat. (18 sts)
R12: Skip next 6 sts, SC across. (12 sts)
R13: ch1, flatten the remaining stitches so that the next st is aligned with the last st of the round(st1 & st12). SC across stitching through both layers to close up ear. After 6th stitch, bind off and clip tail.

    1. Hi, I'm currently making Padma and am also confused about the ears. I tried to look at the links in this post but they weren't found :(. Could you help me out and tell me what I'm missing?

    2. Hi there, thinking I am too late... but just in case... Once completed, grip the ear by the last row of stitches and poke the ear into itself... the little hole that was left over will sit on the inside of the ear - against the last row of stitches (which will be on the outside of the ear)... also, the ravelry discussion has a few photos that may help, about the third page in. My ears look a little bit like a spotlight :-)

  3. WOW! Okay, part three is done (thanks to some help on ravelry!) My son saw me working on this and really, really, really, wants one! The one I am making is already earmarked for his Holiday Stocking! What is a mother to do?

  4. hi, i am having trouble with the ears...

    R12: Skip next 6 sts, SC across. (12 sts)
    R13: ch1, flatten the remaining stitches so that the next st is aligned with the last st of the round(st1 & st12). SC across stitching through both layers to close up ear. After 6th stitch, bind off and clip tail.

    in R12 skip next 6 sts means i dont do anything but SC in the 7th st? i did that but it got the 2 layers joined together then i don't know how to continue to the nx row.. Help!!

    Padma is really cute.. I really want to make her...
