Want to see the other fast food patterns and their release date? See them here!
Hello everyone! We’re nearly done with releasing all of the fast food themes patterns. Next week will be the last pattern, which is the french fries. I hope you guys loved this bundle! Making bundles is really great for me because my mind had a much easier time thinking of what patterns to do if they fit a certain theme, rather than trying to think of new totally different/random patterns for each week 🙂 So I LOVE bundles. Anyways, I already have almost all of August’s patterns all done and am ready to start thinking of HALLOWEEN patterns! Please leave me a comment if you have any ideas for what you’d like to see in this year’s Halloween bundle.
And below is a picture of the full free food bundle:
• Yarn 4/Medium Weight Yarn in…
Red and yellow
• 4mm Crochet Hook
• 10mm safety eyes
• Getting Started
To make the bottle, we will start at the very tip and work our way down. At the first few rounds we will work in the front and back loops often. When we work in those loops, that will help form the shape of the bottle’s top area. After this, forming the tube part of the bottle is much simpler. We will also use cardboard to help keep the bottle’s shape at the tip area and at the bottom of the bottle so it will sit well.
• Important Note:
If you put cardboard into this amigurumi, you can’t wash it or dry it, as it would be a fire hazard. If you need to wash this amigurumi, please make this toy WITHOUT the cardboard.
• Recommended Yarns:
JoAnn Fabric’s “Big Twist” Yarn
Red Heart Super Saver Yarn
Hobby Lobby’s “I Love This Yarn!”
Start in yellow or red
Round 1: 6 Sc into a Magic Ring (6)
Round 2: *Inc, Sc in the next 2 st* all around (8)
Round 3: In the BLO (Back Loop Only) *Sc* all around (8)
Round 4: In BOTH loops, *Inc, Sc 3* all around (10)
Round 5: *Sc* all around (10)
Round 6: *Inc, Sc 4* all around (12)
Round 7-8: *Sc* all around (12)
Round 9: *Inc, Sc 5* all around (14)
Round 10: In the FLO, *Inc, Sc in the next st* all (21)
Round 11: In BOTH Loops, *Inc, Sc in the next 2 st* all around (28)
Take a piece of cardboard. Place the bottle onto the cardboard as shown and outline around it (Pic 1). You will have a circle on your cardboard (Pic 2). Cut around the outline (Pic 3). Repeat this one more, for a total of 2 cut out pieces. Later we will place these pieces into the bottle (Pic 4).
Round 12: In the BLO, *Sc* all around (28)
Round 13: In BOTH Loops, *Sc* all around (28)
Round 14: In the FLO *Inc, Sc 3* all around (35)
Stuff the tip of the bottle now. Insert the cardboard now.
Round 15: In the BLO *Sc* all around (35)
Round 16-20: In BOTH loops, *Sc* all around (35)
Now we’re going to add 2 eye stitch markers into Round 20. Be sure to use a different color for these markers so you don’t confuse them with your round stitch marker. These will mark where to place the eyes later. Add a marker into the 15th stitch and the 19th stitch. This will look like the photo below:
Round 21-36: *Sc* all around (35)
Add safety eyes into the marked areas now.
Round 37: In the BLO *Dec, Sc in the next 3 st* all around (28)
Stuff the bottle firmly now. Place the second piece of cardboard into the bottom of the bottle now.
Round 38: In BOTH loops *Dec, Sc 2* all around (21)
Round 39: *Dec, Sc* all around (14)
Round 40: *Dec* all around (7)
Finish off now, leaving a long tail for sewing. Sew the remaining stitches closed. Weave in ends.
In Black Embroidery Thread
Insert needle with thread one stitch over from the right eye, then pull needle out one stitch over from the left eye as shown (Pic 1). Reinsert needle into the original insertion spot, and pull needle out where shown, making sure the needle lands ABOVE the thread (Pic 2). Reinsert needle into the same spot, this time making sure the needle lands BELOW the yarn as shown, and pull needle out where shown (Pic 3). Tie the tail ends of yarn firmly into knots and bring into the flower to hide. Done!
In Yellow Yarn
Apparently I wasn’t the brightest when taking the example photos below. Make sure you’re making the “k” on the RED KETCHUP bottle and NOT the mustard bottle like I did 🙂 Also, use YELLOW yarn on that red ketchup bottle.
Insert needle with thread anywhere into the red ketchup bottle, and pull needle out 11 rounds below the middle of the left eye (Pic 1). Reinsert needle about 5 rounds below the middle of the left eye (Pic 2), and pull needle out 3 stitches to the right (Pic 2). Reinsert needle about 3 rounds down, in the middle of the line as shown (Pic 3). Pull needle out about 3 rounds down as shown, but make sure this lands 1 round ABOVE the previous line (Pic 4). Reinsert needle where shown, this will be 1/3rd into the right line (Pic 5). Tie the ends of yarn into firm knots and bring into the bottle to hide. Done!
In Red Yarn
Apparently I wasn’t the brightest when taking the example photos below. Make sure you’re making the “m” on the YELLOW MUSTARD bottle and NOT the ketchup bottle like I did 🙂 Also, use RED YARN on that red ketchup bottle.
Insert needle with thread into the yellow mustard bottle, and pull needle out about 10 rounds below the left eye (Pic 1). Reinsert needle about 3 rounds below the left eye (Pic 2). Pull needle out at the middle of the bottle, lining up with the middle of the mouth (Pic 3-4). Reinsert needle into the same stitch as the left line (Pic 5), and pull needle out 3 rounds below lining up with the right eye (Pic 5). Pull needle out where shown (Pic 6). Reinsert needle into the same stitch at the right line (Pic 7). Tie the ends of yarn into firm knots and bring into the bottle to hide.
