crochet:: christmas pasties pattern

Since you have been just dying to make pasties for your friends, sisters, mothers, cousins, uncles…who am I to judge.

If you had forgotten just what they looked like in my last post

pasties

Here you go.

Mom’s Lucky Pasties Pattern::

#20 cotton

size 6 steel hook

ch 4, sl st tog to make loop, ch 1 (use a stitch marker and make continuous rounds)

rnd 1 – 12 sc in ring

rnd 2 – inc to 20 sc (2 in same st, 1 in next st, 2 in same st, 1, 2, 1…)

rnd 3 – 20 sc (1 in each)

rnd 4 – inc to 25 sc (1, 1, 2, 1, 1, 2, 1, 1, 2…)

rnd 5 – inc to 34 sc (1, 1, 2, 1, 1, 2, 1, 1, 2…)

rnd 6 – 34 sc (1 in each)

rnd 7 – 34 sc (1 in each)

rnd 8 – inc to 45 sc (1, 1, 2, 1, 1, 2, 1, 1, 2…)

rnd 9 – 45 sc (1 in each)

rnd 10 – inc to 60 sc (1, 1, 2, 1, 1, 2, 1, 1, 2…)

rnd 11 – 60 sc (1 in each)

rnd 12 – 60 sc (1 in each)

rnd 13 – 60 sc (1 in each)

rnd 14 – 60 sc with 3 ch in between each sc (sc, ch 3, sc, ch3, sc, ch 3…) then sl st tog, tie off and sew in end.

make tassels::

wrap approx 30 times around a 3” piece of cardboard

slide the wrapped cotton off and with a long piece, gather the top of the tassel and tie

with a second long piece, wrap 5 or 6 times about 1/2” down, then knot and trim tassel ends

with the top tie, ch as long as you wish the tassel to dangle and tie it into the center of the pastie (I tied it into my starting ch tail), and sew in ends

As for the stuff used to stick said pasties onto the human body, I have NOT A CLUE what is used and I refuse to google it.  Hence, some of the jokes at Christmas for my family had to do with double-faced tape, various kinds of glue and then the conversation decayed to food stuffs that might be suitable…it was hilarious to say the least, especially since we were having a little wine by then.

Happy hooking!

  1. You can either use the adhesive meant for applying false eyelashes or ‘fashion tape’ (doubl sided boob tape, meant for keepin plunging necklines from showing too much)
    I’m sure regular double sides tape would work in a pinch, but it wont be fun to remove
