Halloween Applique: Tombstone

By Janet Carrillo "damn it Janet, let's crochet!"
Ideas on how to use these appliques...
*These would be great to apply to any project.
*You can add them to kitchen towels,
*turn them into a keychain or fridge magnet.
*You can also make several and make a garland.
*Attach a ribbon to make them into bookmarks.

approx. 2"height x 1.50"length
...but they can vary based on yarn and hook size.

*Crochet hook size: 3.5mm (E)
*Worsted weight yarn: Light Gray (4yds)
*Stitch Markers to mark your rounds
*Embroidery Floss or Thread: Black
*Felt: Red
*Tapestry Needle
*Hot Glue

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.
 There's no need to sl st and/or ch when going to the next round unless stated to do so.

 Other side of the foundation chains - this VIDEO explains how to do this technique.
 Invisible join - this VIDEO explains how to do this technique.

TOMBSTONE with light gray
  Row 1: ch9, dc in 4th ch from hook (skip chs count as one dc), dc in next 4 chs, 4dc in next ch, other side of the foundation chains dc in next 6 chs, ch1, turn (16)
  Row 2: hdc in next 6 sts, 2hdc in next 4 sts, hdc in next 6 sts, ch1, turn (20)
  Row 3: sl st in next 20 sts, sl st evenly along the bottom, join to 1st st with the invisible join
F/O, secure and weave in the ends.

     CRACK...on the upper left top part create a crack on the tombstone using black embroidery floss or thread.
     EYES...using black embroidery floss or thread, make the eyes however you like the possibilities are endless. I made 2 X's for the eyes.
     MOUTH...using black embroidery floss or thread, create a mouth.
     TONGUE...using red felt, create a tiny tongue and glue it in either side of the mouth.
