Baby’s First Tie Fighter

Image

No boys toy collection is complete without a tie fighter!! I wanted to make a simple fighter that could be used for all ages. I’ll admit, there isn’t much detail, but it’s a free pattern and i didn’t feel like spending hours on a toy.

I used RED HEART SUPER SAVER grey heather and black.

You will also need a size H crochet hook and a bit of stuffing (go ahead and use some spare yarn clippings you only need enough to fill a half dollar sized ball)

sc- single crochet

dc-double crochet

sl st- slip stitch

cluster- 2 sc, dc, 2 sc.,..into stitch indicated (used only in the wings)

THE WINGS

  This is a granny square variation. MAKE 2

 WITH GREY Chain 4, join with a sl st (or use and magic circle and…..)

rd 1…ch 3 (counts as dc here and throughout). 12 dc into circle. (13 dc)

rd 2…CHANGE TO BLACK…ch 3, dc in same st. *2 dc in next dc* around. Join with sl st onto top of ch-3 (26 dc)

rd 3…ch 3, *2 dc in next, dc in the next st* around. Join with sl st to top of ch-3. (39 dc)

rd 4…CHANGE TO GREY…ch 1. sc in same st and *sc each of the next 5 st. CLUSTER in next st. sc in next 6 st, CLUSTER in next.* around.  Join with sl st into fist ch-1 (64 st)

Fasten off and weave in ends. Using grey, embroider six lines matching up the 6 clusters.

Looks kinda like a raddish….

With grey, CH 4, sl st into first chain to form a ring (leave long tail to sew onto wing)

rd 1-2….ch 1, sc around, sl st into ch-1 (4 sc)

rd 3…ch 1, 2 sc into each sc. sl st into ch-1 (8 sc)

rd 4…ch 1, 2 sc into each sc. sl st into ch-1 (16 sc)

rd 5-6…. ch 1. sc into each sc, sl st into ch-1 (16 sc)

rd 7… ch 1. sc 2 together around. sl st into ch-1 (8 sc)

rd 8…ch 1. sc 2 together around. sl st into sh-1 (4 sc) STUFF with yarn or cotton.

rd 9-10…ch 1. sc around. sl st into ch-1. (4 sc)

fasten off leaving a long tail. take tapestry needle and go around the 4 sc and tighten them together. sew onto the middle of one of the wings and weave in loose ends.

Sew other wing onto other side of the body and weave in all loose ends. Wa-La. you now have a tie fighter.
