Free Pattern: Mome Rath

I have finally gotten around to writing out a pattern for my little Mome Rath. When I worked on my first one I didn't really pay attention to what I was doing, so I had to make a second one in order for me to write the pattern. That's okay, I think my little guy needed a girlfriend anyway.

It is a super simple pattern, quick and easy enough for a beginner crocheter to make.

ch = chain
dec = decrease
sc = single crochet (UK: dc double crochet)

As long as you know how to do the above crochet stitches, you will be fine! So here is the basic pattern:

US G-6 (4.0mm) crochet hook
Red Heart Ltd. Super Saver Solids (acrylic) in two colors
Pipe cleaner
Black and white felt scraps for eyes
Embroidery thread

Mome Rath Body
Bend pipe cleaner in half.
Using color #1:
R1 - Ch 2, 6 sc in second chain from hook (do not join rounds)
R2 - 6 sc in each sc around
Place pipe cleaner into the middle of crocheted piece.
R3 - *6 sc in each sc*, repeat until one side of bent pipe cleaner is covered by crochet rounds and you have reached the top of the point.
Change to color #2:
*R1 - *6 sc in each sc*, repeat until second side of bent pipe cleaner is completely covered.
Last row - *sc 1, dec 1*, repeat 2 times
Bind off, weave in loose ends.

Mome Rath Hair and Eyes
Cut 6-8 pieces of yarn (7 inches long each).
Tie each piece of yarn to the center of the point of the Mome Rath body.
Trim hair to the appropriate height.
Cut two white ovals and two black circles out of felt scraps.

With embroidery thread, sew black circles to white ovals for your Mome Rath's eyes.
Sew one eye to each colored side of your Mome Rath, underneath the yarn hair.
Enjoy your new little friend!

I hope you enjoy the pattern. If you happen to make your own Mome Rath please send me a link to your little guy, or girl. I'd love to see them!
