Monkey C2C Pillow

By Janet Carrillo "damn it Janet, let's crochet!"
SIZE/MEASUREMENTS
approx. 14"height x 14"length

*Worsted Weight Yarn: Chocolate (355yds), Ivory (110yds), Beige (65yds), Black (10yds) & White (2yds)

PATTERN NOTES - must read...
 *I used the corner-to-corner (C2C) method to crochet the graph.

 *You'll find below the graph, written directions and color block directions to help you make this pillow. I include all 3 instructions since everyone has a different preference.
 *After you finish the graph below you will need to make a second piece for the back in a solid color (I used chocolate).
This is the back side of the pillow.

COLOR CODE DIRECTIONS


ASSEMBLE
     You can either sew the pieces together or single crochet them. If you're going to single crochet them together; attach the yarn at any point on the edge and a good way to keep your stitches even is to alternate between making 2 sc and then 3 sc along. Leaving one side open so you can line your pillow and stuff it.
     You would need to line your pieces or make a cushion so the fiberfill won’t show through and/or if you wash the pillow the fiberfill won’t come out. You can sew or glue the fabric in place. (Even if you decide to wash it, the glue won’t come undone. I have washed several beanies that I have made for my son and the embellishments have stayed intact.)
     Now you'll need to stuff your pillow moderately firm or to your liking. Continue to finish closing off the pillow. If you are single crocheting the pieces together, remember to slip stitch to the first stitch to give it an even finish. Finish off, secure and weave in the ends.


This pillow will go great with these and several other Monkey items that I have available.
You can purchase these patterns over on any of my shops (Ravelry or Etsy)

 Triple Crochet (tr)- Y/O hook twice, insert hook into stitch & pull up a loop (4 loops remaining), Y/O hook & pull thru 2 loops (3 loops remaining), Y/O hook & pull thru 2 loops (2 loops remaining, Y/O hook & pull thru the 2 remaining loops.
 Other side of the foundation chains - this VIDEO explains how to do this technique.

MAST with aran
Attach yarn to back loop of the 6th st
  Row 1: ch11, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and across, sl st in same st you attach (10)
F/O, secure and weave in the ends.


ASSEMBLE
     I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I personally like to use matching thread).
     TIP...For anything that I’m going to be using felt, I like to first sketch it out on a white paper and make a stencil of what I need. Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.
FISH
     EYE...using black embroidery floss or thread embroider a black dot for the eye.
SAILBOAT
     BIG SAIL...sew it to the 3rd and 9th stitch of the mast on the right-hand side.
     SMALL SAIL...sew it to the 5th and 9th stitch of the mast on the left-hand side.
     FLAG...using red felt, make a flag (small triangle) and glue it on top of the left-hand side of the mast.

Women's US Shoe Size: 6 - 8.5 and Foot Length of 8.75" - 9.75".

MATERIALS
*DPN's or Circular Needles: 3.25mm (US3)
*Sport Weight Yarn: color of choice (246yds)
*Cable Needle
*Stitch Markers to mark your rounds
*Tapestry Needle

11stitches x 14rows = 4cm (1.57")
Don't forget to check your gauge.

PATTERN NOTES - must read...
  Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round/row indicate the total number of stitches.
  Always use stitch markers to mark your rounds.
  Socks are worked from the toe up.
  Instructions are given using a circular needle for the magic loop method.
  If you’re making your socks using the magic loop method, be sure to pull tight each time when knitting the 1st stitch on each one of the needles (front and back) to prevent a hole.
STARTING the TOE
Using the turkish cast on and with the 3.25mm needles, CO 24 sts over 2 needles (12sts on ea needle)
(with another skein of yarn, cast on an additional 24sts if you're going to be making 2 at a time)
  Rnd 1: k all sts on front and back needles (12sts on ea needle = 24sts)
  Rnd 2: *k1, m1l, k to last st, m1l, k1* repeat from * to * for the back needle (14sts on ea needle = 28sts)
  Rnd 3: k all sts on front and back needles (14sts on ea needle = 28sts)
Repeat rounds 2-3 until you have 28 sts on each needle = 56sts total

STARTING the FOOT
NOTE: The cables are worked over 6 stitches only on the front needles.
  Rnd 18: k1, *p2, k4* repeat from * to * 2 more times, p2, k1, k28 from back needle (28sts on ea needle = 56sts)
  Rnd 19: repeat rnd 18
  Rnd 20: k, *p2, place 2sts on cn & hold to front, k2, k2 from cn* repeat from * to * 2 more times, p2, k1, k28 from back needle
  Rnd 21-24: repeat rnd 18
Repeat round 20-24 til you reach round 66.
At this point, your sock should reach where you’re foot meets your leg.

STARTING the HEEL (fleegle heel)
NOTE: for the front needle we will continue working the same pattern that we have been doing while for the back needle we will start increasing to form a “V”. As you start doing the heel, you will start seeing a pattern and it will become easy.
  Rnd 67: repeat rnd 18 for front needle, back needle-> k1, m1r, k to last st, m1l, k1 (28front + 30back = 58sts)
  Rnd 68: repeat rnd 18 for front needle, back needle-> k30 (58sts)
  Rnd 69: repeat rnd 18 for front needle, back needle-> k1, m1r, k to last st, m1l, k1 (28front + 32back = 60sts)
  Rnd 70: repeat rnd 20 for front needle, back needle-> k32 (60sts)
  Rnd 71: repeat rnd 18 for front needle, back needle-> k1, m1r, k to last st, m1l, k1 (28front + 34back = 62sts)
  Rnd 72: repeat rnd 18 for front needle, back needle-> k34 (62sts)
  Rnd 73: repeat rnd 18 for front needle, back needle-> k1, m1r, k to last st, m1l, k1 (28front + 36back = 64sts)
  Rnd 74: repeat rnd 18 for front needle, back needle-> k36 (64sts)
  Rnd 75: repeat rnd 20 for front needle, back needle-> k1, m1r, k to last st, m1l, k1 (28front + 38back = 66sts)
  Rnd 76: repeat rnd 18 for front needle, back needle-> k38 (66sts)
  Rnd 77: repeat rnd 18 for front needle, back needle-> k1, m1r, k to last st, m1l, k1 (28front + 40back = 68sts)
  Rnd 78: repeat rnd 18 for front needle, back needle-> k40 (68sts)
  Rnd 79: repeat rnd 18 for front needle, back needle-> k1, m1r, k to last st, m1l, k1 (28front + 42back = 70sts)
  Rnd 80: repeat rnd 20 for front needle, back needle-> k42 (70sts)
  Rnd 81: repeat rnd 18 for front needle, back needle-> k1, m1r, k to last st, m1l, k1 (28front + 44back = 72 sts)
  Rnd 82: repeat rnd 18 for front needle, back needle-> k44 (72sts)
  Rnd 83: repeat rnd 18 for front needle, back needle-> k1, m1r, k to last st, m1l, k1 (28front + 46back = 74sts)
  Rnd 84: repeat rnd 18 for front needle, back needle-> k46 (74sts)
  Rnd 85: repeat rnd 20 for front needle, back needle-> k1, m1r, k to last st, m1l, k1 (28front + 48back = 76sts)
  Rnd 86: repeat rnd 18 for front needle, back needle-> k48 (76sts)
  Rnd 87: repeat rnd 18 for front needle, back needle-> k1, m1r, k to last st, m1l, k1 (28front + 50back = 78sts)
  Rnd 88: repeat rnd 18 for front needle, back needle-> k50 (78sts)
For the following round, we will only be working on the front needle as follows…
  Rnd 89: repeat rnd 18 and leave the back needles unworked.

STARTING the HEEL TURN
NOTE: we would only be working on the back needle in rows to start decreasing and shaping the heel.
Place a marker at the center of the heel (back needle).
You should have 25sts on each side (50sts total)
knit 2sts pass the marker, ssk, k1, turn your work, pull yarn tight,
slip 1st st, purl 2sts pass the marker, p2tog, p1, turn,
*slip 1st st, knit to the gap, ssk the st before & after the gap together, k1, turn,
slip 1st st, purl to the gap, p2tog the st before & after the gap together, p1, turn*
repeat from * to * until you have no stitches left to decrease
You should have ended with the wrong/purl side and with 28sts (original amount before increasing). Turn your work and knit across.
Repeat above process on 2nd sock.

STARTING the LEG
  Rnd 90: repeat rnd 20 on front and back needles (56sts)
  Rnd 91-94: repeat rnd 18 on front and back needles (56sts)
Keep repeating round 90-94 ‘til you reach round 131 or desired length.

STARTING the CUFF

  Rnd: 132-136: k1, p1 on front and back needles (56sts)
Bind off by using Jeny's surprisingly stretchy bind off.
Secure and weave in the ends.
