At this stage the pattern is a rough draft so please excuse any errors. There are a couple of things I want to alter slightly so once I have time I plan to fix it up but I figured if I don't write it up now i'll forget and it'll never happen. I'm going to put some better pictures up soon and hopefully some step by step pictures to make some of the trickier bits easier to understand.
Ch - Chain
Sc - Single Crocher
2sctog - Decrease. Crochet 2 stitches together
2scinc - Increase. Crochet 2 stitches in the next stitch
Sl st - Slip Stitch
Hook & Yarn. Size isn't too important. Just use something that will give you a nice tight finished piece. I used 8ply cotton and a 3.25mm hook.
Small bit of cardboard or plastic
Sewing machine needle*
*Optional. I used them on mine but you could use something else if you'f prefer.
The main part:
Round 1: Ch 30 and join to form a ring
Round 2: Sc in each ch (30)
Round 3: 2sctog, sc 28 (29)
Round 4: 2sctog, sc 25, 2sctog (27)
Round 5: sc 25, 2sctog (26)
Round 6: 2sctog, sc 22, 2sctog (24
Round 7: 2sctog, sc 20, 2sctog (22)
Round 8: 2sctog, sc 18, 2sctog (20)
Round 9 - 14: sc around (20)
Round 15: 2scinc, sc 18, 2scinc (22)
Round 16: 2scinc, sc 20, 2scinc (24)
Round 17: 2scinc, sc 22, 2scinc (26)
Round 18: sl st in next st, ch 1, sc in same stitch as ch and then in each stitch around. Don't join!
Round19: Ch 1, turn, sc around
Round 20: Ch 1, turn, sc around
Round 21: Ch 1, turn, sc around
Round 22: Ch 1, turn, sc around
Round 23: Ch 1, turn, sc around
Round 24: sc 9, 2sctog(x4) sc 9
Round 25: sc 6, 2sctog(x5) sc 6
Round 26: sc 4, 2sctog(x4) sc 5
Round 27: Ch 3. Join to first stitch on other side of the gap.
Round 28: Sc around. sc 2 stitches in the ch from previous row
Now we're going to crochet along the sides of the stitches from the previous rows. I'll pop some pictures up when I have time to make another to make it easier to understand but if you look in the picture above you'll see that the stitches go vertical and then in the little section where the machine top attaches to the base the stitches are horizontal.
Round 29 - 36: sc around (24)
Fasten off and leave a long tail so you can sew it to the base.
Handle part at side of machine
(Can you tell I don't really know a lot about sewing just yet?)
Round 1: sc 8 stitches into a magic ring. Pull closed.
Round 2: 2scinc around (16)
Round 3: 2scinc, 1 sc around (24)
Round 4: Sc around (24)
Round 5: Sc2tog, 1 sc (16)
Round 5: sc2tog around (8)
Sew onto the little hole left on the side of the sewing machine.
The Base part
Round 1: Ch 30 and join to form a ring
Round 2 - 30: sc around.
To give the base some stability cut a little bit of cardboard or plastic big enough to fit inside the base. Pop it in and sc along the open edges of the base to close.
The Front part
Round 1: Ch 6, 3scinc in second ch from hook, 3 sc, 5scinc in last, continue to work on the other side of the chain, 3 sc, 2scinc in last
Round 2: 2scinc, sc 4, 2scinc, 1 sc, 2scinc, 1 sc, 2scinc, sc 4
Round 3: 2scinc, 1 sc, 2scinc, 5 sc, 2scinc, 2 sc, , 2scinc 2 sc, 2scinc, sc 4
Round 4: 2scinc, sc 2, 2scinc, 6 sc, 2scinc, sc 3, 2scinc, sc 3, 2scinc, 5sc
Round 5: 2scinc, sc 3, 2scinc, sc 7, 2scinc, sc 4, 2scinc, sc 6
Round 6: Back Loops only: Sc around.
Now you should have all of you pieces. The sewing machine handle part should be stitched on to the machine and the base should be stuffed with cardboard and crocheted closed. Sew the 'front part' of the machine onto the front of the machine. Stuff the machine with stuffing and stitch it to the base part.
I'll pop some pictures up of the little details at a later stage but I used a real sewing needle for the machine needle. I just put some fabric glue onto the top and poked it through the stitches. For the little cotton reel I used a pencil and I just cut the end off. To secure it to the machine I used a sewing pin and fabric glue. I wrapped some embroidery floss around it and secured it with a bit of glue and threaded the other end through the needle. I used another pin to hold the floss to in that place to the left of the cotton and above the machine needle. I have no idea of the technical term for it that place but once I tidy the pattern up i'll find out and make sure to include it.
As I said before this is still a rough draft so there are bound to be errors but I promise i'l fix it all up soon.
