I wanted to crochet something to have an excuse to not only get out and find fun ways to use it, but also to have a need to go back to the craft store for more safety eyes! 😉
I bought the safety eyes at Hobby Lobby. They come in packs of 4-8 for about 99 cents – $1.50 a package. These are 15 mm eyes.
To crochet the eyes I used Red Heart Super Saver (worsted) yarn. I used a size E hook (3.5 mm).
Step 1: 6 SC into a magic circle. (Do not pull your ring completely closed, you will want to put the safety eyes through the hole, just not yet)
Step 2: 2 SC into each of the 6 SC from previous step.
Step 3-4: 1 SC into each of the 12 stitches.
Step 5: Put your safety eyes on and pull your ring tight.
Step 6: Make a total of 6 SC DEC.
Stuff the eyeball with cotton or scrap yarn. Weave in your yarn end!
So much fun and they work up within a minute or two each!
This last one is my favorite. I wish I could have sat around waiting for someone to go into it! Btw, I did NOT do this one, my husband did. I refuse to walk into those things… I am a wuss and always feel like a snake will fly out of it! haha!
