  • the hdc are then worked into the magic circle
  • the main body of the ghost consists of rounds of hdc sts
  • beginning 2 ch counts as first hdc stitch throughout the pattern
  • you can work over your ends rather than sew them in as chenille yarn will grip and not come untangled
  • alternatively, you can sew the ends in securely

  • you can embroider eyes, cheeks and mouth instead of using plastic embellishments
