Hi,

Newbie to crochet here!  I got the Japanese books on crocheting all things Hello Kitty, which rawk the casbah.  However, I am still new, and don't know how to read pattern, and definitely don't know Japanese.

So, here's the question:

(For those crocheters that have done Hello Kitty granny squares or have crocheted Hello Kitty's head in 2D, I need your help!)

Are her ears attached to her head?  Or are they separate to be sewn on later? 


I've gotten as far as the oval part, I just can't get to her ears.  Help!

Thanks in advance.

Edit to add: pic & I've gotten to ~
Start: 4 ch
R1: 1 ch, 10 sc,
R2: 1 ch, (4 sc, 2sc on the end) X2
R3: 1 ch, (4 sc, 2sc increase, 1sc, 2 sc increase) X2
R4: 1 ch, (4 sc, 2sc inc, 2 sc inc, 1sc, 2sc in, 2 sc inc) X2
R5: 1 sc, (5 sc, [2sc inc, 1 sc] x4) X 2

Then, I'm stuck.

hey

i'm not an experienced hello kitty granny square crocheter... but from the pic it looks like maybe when u complete the last row of the oval part u continue for the ear on the right as u look at the diagram.. and then maybe for the other one u cut your yarn and rejoin to do it?! maybe? i think that might work.. i'm going to give it a ago myself to see if it works.. hubby is playing games so i need to amuse myself! lol!

i think after last oval row..
u chain 1 and turn,
then 3sc, ch 1 and turn,
1sc then sc decrease, ch 1 turn
sc decrease

then rejoin yarn to where it shows the other ear starting..
ch1 3 sc, ch1
turn 1 sc, 1 sc decrease, ch 1
turn sc decrease.

thats just a guess i could be wrong?! but like i said i'm going to give it a go myself right now..

the left one looks like you join the yarn in and sc onto the top of the head the right one looks like you just chain one up from the head just like when you were adding a row to the main head and sc

they dont look like they are sewn on later at all though

in other words i agree with what Esjay82 said Smiley
