Tonsils

Admittedly this seems a bit odd, I know. However, I was contacted again by Kaila (the wonderful lady who gave me the challenge to make the flasher banana) to make a pattern for tonsils because her son was having his removed. I still remember having mine removed and I can only imagine how cute it will be to give these to him since he is losing his. Truthfully, it just makes my day that I was asked to come up with something else… that people enjoy my work and believe that I can do it…

This pattern should be quick and easy to make up. I decided to make these a little bigger because I imagine giving them to younglings and I didn’t want to make them too small. I’m also making two, since when you get them removed it is both…

Worsted weight yarn in colors of choice
G size hook
9mm safety eyes
Poly-fil

Make two for the pair
6 sc in magic circle
*inc* around
*inc, sc in next* around
*inc, sc in next2* around
*inc, sc in next 3* around
*inc, sc in next 4* around
*inc, sc in next 5* around
sc around
*bobble (3dc tog in same st making sure to push the bundle of st to the front as you work), sc in next 6* around
sc around for 2 rounds
*sc in next 3, bobble, sc in next 3* around
sc around for 2 rounds
*sc, bobble, sc in next 5* around
sc around
*dec, sc in next 5* around
sc around, go ahead and attach the safety eyes. I placed them on the row between the 2nd row of bobbles and the sc above with about 2 st in between. It amused me to put them above a bobble making the bobble look like a nose. The top of the tonsils will lean toward the side so for the first I put the eyes over the 3rd bobble over and for the other on the 6th bobble over.
*dec, sc in next 4* around
*sc in next 2, bobble, sc in next 2* around
