Tiny Jack Amigurumi Pattern

Today was the Handmade Nation premiere in Austin! I loved being a part of it, if just a little tiny part, by doing a demo! I brought lots of kits, patterns, tools, business cards, and instructional booklets on how to crochet, and at the end of my "shift"---all GONE! So no one misses out on any of the patterns I had available for the first part of the demo, I'll be posting them here every few days. First is a little pumpkin with a scary face! Tiny Jack! ;)

Orange worsted weight yarn
Green worsted weight yarn
Black safety eyes (6mm)
(E-I) Hook (larger hook will make Jack bigger)
Yarn needle
Polyester stuffing
Black felt
Craft glue

ch: chain
sc: single crochet
st: stitch
sc2tog: single crochet 2 st together (decrease)

Tiny Jack:
Starting at top of pumpkin and with orange yarn, make an adjustable ring, ch 1, and sc 6 into the ring. Pull closed.
R1: Work 2sc into each st (12)
R2: (2sc into next st, sc into next st)* repeat to end of round (18)
R3: (2sc into next st, sc into next 2 st)* repeat to end of round (24)
R4: sc into each stitch (24)
R5: sc2tog all the way around (12)
Mark your place with a stitch marker and insert the safety eyes into the pumpkin. The back will fit very snugly onto the eye inside the pumpkin. Push hard!
R6: sc2tog all the way around (6)
Fasten off by slip stitching into the next stitch. Leave a long tail and using a yarn needle, weave this tail through the last round of stitches. Pull it tight and the hole will close.
With the tail still on the yarn needle, thread it up through the pumpkin to the top and out, then back in close by, through to the bottom. Knot this tail at the bottom and hide the end inside the pumpkin by threading it back inside.
Using green yarn, create the stem by threading it through the top and back out, tying a knot, threading it back through and keeping a loop on the outside, then tying the tails. Snip off yarn to desired length.
Glue a tiny black felt triangle on for the nose, and a black felt smile on using craft glue.

**He'd be cute hanging on a black cord for a Halloween necklace, from a keychain, or just sittin' somewhere being spooky!
