Ood Blood Drop Squeezy...



Pattern:

Make a regular Bob the Blood Drop body...

Size F Hook
Worsted Weight Yarn

Round 1: SC 4 in magic Ring (or, ch 2 and sc 4 in second ch from hook).  Join {sl st to first SC, ch1}
Round 2: SC in each st, join (4)
Round 3: *SC in first st, 2 SC in next st* repeat from *, join (6)
Round 4: *SC in first st, 2 SC in next st* repeat from *, join (9)
Round 5: *SC in first st, 2 SC in next st* repeat from * to last st, sc in last st, join  (13)
Round 6: SC in each st, join (13)
Round 7: *SC in first two st, 2 SC in next st* repeat from * to last st, sc in last st, join (17)
Round 8: SC in each st, join (17)
Round 9: *SC in first two st, 2 SC in next st* repeat from * to last 2 st, sc in last 2 st, join (22)
Round 10: SC in each st, join (22)
Round 11: *SC in first st, 2 SC in next st* repeat from *, join (33)
Rounds 12-20: SC in each st, join (33)
Rounds 21-23: *SC in first st, SC 2tog* repeat from *, join
(stuff-as-you-go decreases)
Round 24: SC 2tog
(Cram as much stuffing as you can in as youre closing him up, remember, hes there to be squeezed so he needs to be fairly firm.)
Fasten off.

Then, if you can find yarn the same color but lighter weight (or want to use a different color, anyway) use that, otherwise, I split about 30' of 4-ply yarn down to 2-ply...



...not the most fun, and, yes, I could have split 15' and used both halves, but I'd already crocheted the mouth parts with the full yarn, cut it, and found it to be too bulky!

Using a size C hook (2.75 mm)

Ch 12, turn, 2 sc in each ch
Ch 18, turn, 2 sc in each ch.  Sl St in top of original chain
Ch 24, turn, 2 sc in each ch.  Sl st in top of original chain
Ch 24, turn, 2 sc in each ch.  Sl st in top of original chain
Ch 18, turn, 2 sc in each ch.  Sl St in top of original chain
Ch 12, turn, 2 sc in each ch
Fasten off

You should have six spirals in three different lengths.

Sew to body between the eyes.

I really liked him just like that, but to make sure it wasn't mistaken for Cthulhu, I decided to add the Ood sphere.  This is optional, and you might have a better orb pattern - mine looked a little too much like a balloon...

Using crochet cotton and a size 6 steel hook,

rnd 1: 6 sc in mr
rnd 2: sc, inc (9)
rnd 3: sc, sc, inc (12)
rnd 4: sc around
rnd 5: sc, sc, inc (16)
rnd 6: sc around
rnd 7: sc, sc dec (12)
rnd 8: sc around
rnd 9: sc, sc, dec (9)
rnd 10: sc, dec (6)

fasten off, leaving long tail.  Ch 15 starting from base of sphere.



It looks... unfortunate, yes.  Sew end of ch under Ood mouth, and sew sphere to Ood body.



And, finally, that completes my suite of Dr Who inspired blood drop squeezies!  Phew!  I'm sure you're happy to see the last of them!

I've been working on this for over a year.
I started with some local, white alpaca, dyed it with Easter colors,

carded it into fluffy, sparkly batts,


And spun it into thick n' thin yarn!

I made a total of 22 batts, from 1.8 oz to 2.8 oz each.
These 3 are 9oz @ 290 yds, 8.3oz @ 290 yds, and 9oz @ 270 yds.
I have another drying that is 10oz @ 245 yds
and another still on the bobbin, yet to be measured.
I also have 1 batt left that I don't think I will spin on it's own. I guess I will hang onto it.
