Additional Information:
Difficulty: Experienced

• Getting started
This clown’s body is worked from the head, body, and legs, in one piece. While making the head we will also form his hair. After this, we will make this arms, legs, shoes, hat, facial features, and his balloons!

• Tip
Be sure to read the pattern through before crocheting it, that way you understand how things are done before trying it!

Clown

To make the clown, we’re first going to start at the head. While making the head, we’re going to work in the back loops only during some parts. This will then leave a front loop left. Later, we will attach our hook and new yarn to those front loops to make the hair. After we finish making the head, we’ll do this similar technique to make the collar.

Hair:

In Any Bright Color

Now we’re going to add hair to the head! Remember the front loops we left when making the head? We’re going to crochet into those loops to form the hair. Let’s get started!

Place your crochet hook into the first loop on the top row of the loops as shown  Yarn over with the hair color  Now, pull the yarn through that first loops  Ch 3  Make 3 Dc into that first loops . Continue making 4 Dc into each of the next 5 loops  Continue on the next page.

Turn the head upside down to start working on the next row of loops as shown  Insert hook into the first loop on the next row  Make 4 Dc into each of the 6 loops  Once you meet the end of the row, turn the head again to work on the next row of loops  Make 4 Dc into the next 10 loops 

Turn the head upside down again, and work in the last row of loops  Make 4 Dc in the next 10 loops Repeat this hair process for the other section of front loops 

Now we’re going to continue working back on the suit for a round, then make the collar. After this, we’ll go back to working on the suit!

Suit:

In Suit Color

Round 24: Continue working from the head by placing your hook back onto the loop of the head. Change to Suit Color. In the BLO *Sc* all around (24)
Stop here for now, DON’T finish off.

Collar Round 2: 4 Dc in each stitch all around (288)
Finish off collar here.
Continue Suit Round 25-26: Continue working from the suit by placing your hook back onto the loop of the suit *Sc* all around (24)

Round 33: *Sc* all around (42)
Round 34: *Inc, Sc 6* all around (48)
Round 35-42: *Sc* all around (48)

Important Note:

In the next round we will make the legs. To do this, we have to split the stitch count for each leg in half. Since we have 48 stitches, each leg will have only 24 stitches. If you follow how I did my legs and your legs come out looking uneven, just fold the suit part in half (Pic 2) and use a stitch marker to mark where the legs look even for you  Just make sure each leg has 24 stitches so they’re even!


Round 43: Add a differently colored stitch marker in the 38th stitch  This marks where we will crochet into later to form the leg. Sc in the next 13 st  Now make 1 Sc into the stitch where we placed the stitch marker  This forms one leg. Sc in the remaining 10 st  (24)

Round 44-48: *Sc* all around (24)
Round 49: *Dec, Sc 2* all around (18)

Finish off now, and weave in ends. Stuff the suit using the hole for the next leg. Once firmly stuffed, add stuffing to the leg we’ve already made 

Second Leg:

Balloon Assembly:

Now we need to attach the balloon! There are 2 ways we can do this. The first way is a lot more secure, but can only be done with 1 balloon because this method takes up a lot of room on the clown’s hand. If you’re giving this as a toy to a kid, I would only recommend attaching the balloon this first way.

The second way allows us to use multiple balloons, but it’s a lot less secure. This is a good option if you’re going to use the clown as more of a decoration.

Note: Pipe cleaners won’t work to keep the balloons up. Please use firm wire stems. I bought 18 gauge stems from JoAnn Fabrics. Look in the floral section, the brand I used is called “The Bloom Room”. They come in long sticks, similar to pipe cleaners.

Note: Please make sure to bend the ends of your wire so they won’t poke anyone. For extra safety, you can put hot glue or E600 on the end, then wrap yarn around it as show.

Method 1 of Balloon Assembly:

Take a wire, about 5″ long  Bend the end of it up as shown, use pliers  Insert the long end of the wire from the bottom of the toy’s hand, up to the top of the hand Do the same with the short end of the wire as shown. The wire will now look like.

Bend the very tip of short end of the wire once again, and bend it back into the toy’s hand  Bend the very top of the long wire  Place glue on the end of that wire  and slide a balloon into the wire 

Make extra sure that the balloon is secure and won’t poke you! I found this was to be a lot more secure, but it only allows room for 1 balloon. You may notice the wire on the top of the clown’s hand – just sew some yarn over that small section! (Or paint it).

Method 2 of Balloon Assembly:

Take a wire, about 8″ Bend both tips of the wire as shown, so they won’t poke you  Add glue onto one end of the wire , and slide the balloon onto that end  Insert the other end of the wire into the clown’s hand, leading the wire through the toy’s arm/body. Doing this will make it more stable. Repeat this process for any additional balloons. Please note that this method isn’t as stable as the previous method, so only use this method if your clown will be for decoration.

All Finished.
