Sammy Spliff







Ahhh Sammy Spliff.  He's a good friend, we've been buds for a bit now and I figured it was time he rolled on over to the blog (ha!  get it?  Puns ...).

Some of you may be familiar with Sammy's friend, Tony Smokes (below).  Tony is available as a purchase only pattern on my Etsy Shop.  Both Tony and Sammy came to me in a moment of ... inspiration 😅but it took a while before I put hook to yarn and completed the pattern for Sammy.  I'm so happy I did, and that I get to share this with you all for free.





Pro Tip:   

If you have cats, or know someone who is owned by cats, stuff Sammy or Tony with some catnip for a hysterical cat toy.  If you do this, I HIGHLY suggest leaving the smoke off of the top of either toy, we dont want any yarn making its way into those precious little bellies. 





Pattern Notes:

Pattern is worked in the round.  Count at the end of each row will be between ( ) 
Repeat stitches between * * to the end of the row or until specified

There is no gauge for this pattern.  With suggested materials and hook size, Sammy will measure 6 inches long and 4.5 inches around at the fattest point

Insert eyes between row 16 and 20 

Now is also a good time to add the mouth and begin stuffing.  



Continuing on to the ash portion:

The next two rows you will begin to work in the grey with speckles of red and black to create the "burning" ash look.  You can do this however you'd like. I have put the suggested colors at the beginning of the next two rows.

R30:  (Grey, Black) 1 SC in each st around (22)



Now working only in Grey:

R32:  1 SC in each st around (20)
R33:  *1 SC in nex 8 sts, DEC (18)
R34:  1 SC in next st around (18)


Fasten off and weave in ends.  Finish stuffing and shaping.





Eyelids:

Ch 5
R1:  SC in 2nd CH from hook and the next 3  (4)

Fasten off, leaving a tail for sewing.

Attach the eye lids so they partially cover the safety eyes, this will give Sammy his stoned look. 



Top and Smoke:

With Grey Yarn
R1:  6 SC in MR  (6)
R2:  INC in each st around (12)
R3:  *1 SC in next st, INC* (18)

Fasten off and leave long tail for sewing.  

Sew the top of the ash to Sammy.  Add any more stuffing you might need.  

Smoke:  Using white yarn, cut 8-10 4 inch pieces. Attach them to the top of the ash.  Using the wire brush, gently brush out the top to create smoke.

If you know me, or follow me on social media you'll know that gaming is one of the few things I do as much as I crochet.  Recently, they remastered and released the first 3 Spyro games - and let me tell you, this girl has gotten in her Spyro time.  

A few nights ago, in a complete crochet slump, I spent the night playing the third installment, Spyro: Year of the Dragon - when the inspiration hit me.  I had chased down an Egg Thief.  He bobbed, I weaved (flew off a cliff, it happens).  When i caught him, an adorable baby dragon popped out of the egg.   I knew I needed 1,…

They say that fashion cycles, sometimes this is a terrible idea (stonewashed jeans should never, ever be a thing again), but sometimes its a good thing, like now, when scrunchies make their come back.





This scrunchie pattern is ridiculously easy.  I'm not even sure we can call it pattern - its more of a How To.

First, lets talk about the yarn.  Bernat Velvet Yarn, this stuff is AMAZING.  If you haven't gotten your hands on some, even if you aren't making scrunchies, I recommend it.  Just keep some on hand to touch and caress every once in a while.  You don't even have to make anything with it.



This yarn is Bulky weight (5) and calls for a 6.5mm crochet hook.  Its much thinner, and softer, than their blanket yarn.  However, I will note that because of the texture of…

It's officially winter here in New England, and mother nature has come through with that cold air we never seem to get used to.  It's a whopping 11 degrees out currently, and my ears are cold just thinking about it!

For those of you who aren't familiar with a Nor'Easter, consider yourself lucky.  It's a storm that forms off the coast of the North Eastern United States (I'm in the Boston area). Those of us ne…
