And, being a newly converted Trekkie, it is only logical that I made... Spock.


http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs168.snc4/37762_1368691653205_1109100177_30954922_3301913_n.jpg


PATTERN:

[This will not be perfect, since I'm trying to recreate it from memory, so you might have to do some fudging.]

-Hook size G
-Worsted weight yarn
*unfortunately, the only one that I can give you the name of is the blue one, which was Red Heart 4-ply acrylic, Robin Blue. You also need black and tan-ish yarn.
-Black and gold embroidery thread, needle with a large eye
-thread to match the color of Spock's skin so that it won't be noticeable

HEAD:
R1) Black yarn: start off with 6 sc in a ring. (Useful knowledge: Magic ring video here)
R2) 2 sc in each crochet (12)
R3) *2 sc in 1 sc, 1 sc in next* and repeat * all the way around (18)
R4) *2 sc in 1 sc, 1 sc in next, 1 sc in next* and repeat * all the way around (24)
R5) *2 sc in 1 sc, 1 sc in next 3* (30)
R6) *2 sc in 1 sc, 1 sc in next 4* (36)
R7) *2 sc in 1 sc, 1 sc in next 5* (42)
R8-10) Work even (42)
R11) You will start utilizing your tan colored yarn at this point, so have it at hand. sc 15 black, switch to tan, sc 12, switch to black, sc 15 (42)
R12) sc 14 black, sc 14 tan, sc 14 black (42)
R13) sc 13 black, sc 16 tan, sc 13 black (42)
R14) sc 12 black, 18 tan, 12 black (42)
R15) You will begin the decreases in this row.Basically, you *sc 5 and dec 1* to make your decrease. Some of these decreases will be with black yarn, some with tan. I didn't count how many black vs tan there were, so you're on your own there in terms of knowing when to switch...
**IMPORTANT NOTE: You know how on previous rows, you were making a diagonal hairline by switching yarn at an earlier point than the previous row? You won't be doing that any longer. You will switch to tan at the same point as the row beneath it, if that makes any sense (i.e. if you weren't decreasing this row, the line caused by the switch would be "straight" rather than diagonal... but, of course, since you're decreasing, it will slant a little bit, which is what we want)...**
ANYWAYS. You should have 36 stitches at the end of this row.
R16) More decreases! *sc 4 and dec 1*. Again, you will be switching colors at the same point as the previous row. 30 stitches at the end.
R17) *sc 3 and dec 1*, switching yarn at the appropriate time (24)
R18) *sc 2 and dec 1*, switching yarn at the appropriate time (18). Bind off.

LEGS + BODY:
LEGS (make 2 and do not bind off the second one, but continue on to row 9)
R1) Starting with black, 6 sc in ring
R2) *2 sc in 1, 3 sc in next* (15)
R3) Working in back loops only, work even (15)
R4-8) Work even (15)
BODY:
R9) Once you have made both legs, crochet 12 on one leg, skip the last 3, and continue the row by crocheting 12 around the top of the other leg, joining to complete the round (24)
R10-11) Work even (24)
R12-17) Switch to blue and work even (24)
R18) *sc 2, dec 1* (18)
R19) Switch to black. *sc 1, dec 1* (12). Bind off.

ARMS (Make 2):
R1) Starting with tan, sc 6 in ring
R2) *sc 2 in 1, sc 1* (9)
R3-9) Switch to blue and work even.
R10) This is only a partial row. Sc 4, then bind off. (This is so that his arms won't stick straight out)

FEET (Make 2):
R1) Using black, sc 6 in ring
R2) sc 1, sc 2 in 1, [1 hdc and 1 dc in next stitch], [1 dc and 1 hdc in next stitch], sc 2 in 1, sc 1 (10) (This makes a weird elliptical shape. Yes, it's supposed to be that way.)
R3) sc 1, sc 1, 2 sc in 1, 1 sc, 2 hdc in 1, 2 hdc in 1, 1 sc, 2 sc in 1, sc 1, sc 1 (14)
R4-5) sc all (14)
R6) 3 sc, dec 4 times, 3 sc (10)
R7) 3 sc, dec 2 times, 3 sc (8 ) Bind off.

EARS (Make 2):
Ch 5 and turn. hdc in 3rd ch from hook, sl stitch in next ch, bind off. Tie the ends of the yarn together and sew the tails behind the ears and you should get a pointy-eared Vulcan!

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the ears on. Give Spock a face. The eyes should approximately line up with the middle of the ears.

Stuff the head and body and sew together. The head hole is bigger than the neck hole, so they won't match up exactly. Stuff the feet and sew them onto the legs.
**I waited until the end, after everything was sewn onto the body, to try embroidering the insignia on, but it didn't work out well... you might actually want to do this at an earlier point. Up to you.

Stuff arms. Give Spock his Commander's stripes in gold thread. Sew arms to body.

Add any additional touches you would like.

And please, if you use this pattern, post pictures!! Tell your friends!! Spread the Spock love!
