Base (make 2)

With cream, ch 2

Rnd 1: 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook.

Rnd 2: 2 sc in ea sc around. Slst in 1st sc to join. (12)

Rnd 3: Ch 1, * sc, inc, rep from * 5 more times. Slst in 1st sc to join. (18)

Rnd 6: Ch 1, * 4 sc, inc, rep from * 5 more times. Slst in 1st sc to join. (36)

FO, leaving a long tail on one of the Base circles for sewing.

Lay one of the Base circles on top of the cardboard and trace around it. Cut out circle along traced line. You may need to trim it a little smaller.

Sandwich the cardboard circle between the two Base circles (RS facing out) and sew the two Base circles together using the long tail from one of them.

Stem

Rnd 1: Pull up a loop in Rnd 3 of the Base. Ch 1. Continue to pull up loops and sc in ea st of Rnd 3. Do not join with slst. (18)

Make sure you are going clockwise around the Base.

Note: This first step can be rather tricky. An alternative would be to ch 18 and join with a slst into a ring. Then continue with the pattern, but sew the bottom of the Stem to the Base before stuffing.

Rnd 2: Sc in ea sc around. (18)

Rnd 3: *Dec, rep from * 8 more times (9)

Rnds 4: Sc in ea st around. (9)

Rep rnd 4 until Stem measures 3″ tall from start of Stem.

Do not FO. Stuff the Stem firmly and continue with Bowl.

Bowl

Switch to gold.

Rnd 8: Sc in ea sc around.

Rep rnd 8 until gold part of Bowl measures 2″.

Rnd 9: * 4 sc, dec, rep from * 4 more times (24).

Rep rnd 8 until gold part of Bowl measures 3 1/2″.

FO.

Attach eyes and embroider mouth.

Stuff lightly and sew Top of Champagne onto top of Bowl.

Note: If you’re feeling adventurous, you could skip sewing the Top to the Bowl and sc the two together instead. I had success doing this after pinning them together.

Switch to cream.

Pull up a loop in top of Bowl along the edge (through both the last round of Top and through the top loop of Bowl), ch 1.

Rnds 7-10. Sc in each st around. (24)

FO, and weave in ends.

You’re Invited to the Fatimals’ New Year’s Party!

You're Invited!Hi there, Friend! It’s me, Mayor Snack Frog.

You are cordially invited to join us for a fatimal New Year’s Eve party at my home on December 31. We’ll have appetizers, cocktails, and a cotton candy machine! Dinner will be served at 7:30 followed by dancing on the tables and a spirited game of Twister. And of course there will be plenty of cheering and smooching at midnight.

Champagne Pattern by Squirrel PicnicThis year we welcome some special guests, Monsieur and Madame Champagne, who famously bring the party with them wherever they go.

If you won’t be able to make it to the party this year, perhaps you’d like to make a Monsieur and Madame to liven up your own event. I’ve enclosed the crochet pattern for your convenience. They are sure to keep you smiling all night long.

We’d love to see photos of them at your event. Post any photos to our Facebook page or tweet @SquirrelPicnic. I’ll share these and photos of our party on the 1st, after I’ve properly woken, located my camera, and gotten my head on straight.

Even if we don’t see you, we wish you a happy and healthy new year!

Sincerely,

Mayor Snack Frog
for The Fatimals
