Little Green Man Space Alien Applique or Small Mask Pattern
Little Green Man Space Alien Applique
or Small Mask
By Debbie Williams
Size G hook
Worsted weight yarn
Note: you can probably do the pattern in crochet thread with a smaller hook like # 7, but I have not tested it.
Rnd 1: ch 1, 9 sc in ring, sl st in first sc, to join.
Rnd 2: ch 1, 2 sc in ea of first 3 sc, ch 5 (for eye), skip next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc, ch 8 (for mouth), 2 sc in next sc, ch 5 (for other eye), skip next 2 sc, sl st in first sc of this round, to join.
Rnd 3: ch 1, sc in same as joining and next 5 scs, 5 scs around ch 5 of eye, dec over next 2 scs, sc in next 8 chs of mouth, dec over next 2 scs,5 sc around ch5 sp for next eye , join to top of 1st stitch
Turn (do not ch1) sl st in 2 scs, turn (you're back tracking here)
Rnd 4: ch1, sk 1 sc, sc in next 9 scs, sl st in next sc
Rnd 5: ch 1, sk 1 sc,sc in next 8 scs, sl st in next sc
Rnd 6: ch 1, sk 1 sc, sc in next 7 scs, sl st in next sc
Rnd 7: ch 1, sk 1 sc, sc in next 6, sl st in next sc
Rnd 8: edge-ch 1, turn, sc in next 19 scs /end rows, 2 scs in next sc (bottom of mouth) sc in next 11 scs, join 30 scs not counting turn ch. Finish off. Weave in and ends.
If you would like to turn this into a little mask, go around edge again in sc until desired "bowl effect " is reached. Tie a piece of yarn to each side (near top of each eye)
