As for all Mookie Tookies, now, we’ll stop working in rounds, from now on, we’ll work in rows, to give our little guy the personality that is now typical of Mookie Tookies.
We will need a little bit of math to distribute our stitches evenly, like we have been doing with all the toys of this series. Now, 72 divided by 4 = 18. We will divide the top if 4 equal parts of 18 sts each.

Side #1 (Front)-
Row 19- Join Pumpkin where you would have started the next round and crochet 18 sc only, leaving the rest unworked. Ch 1, turn. (18 sc)
Row 20- 1 sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn. (18 sc)
Rows 21 to 22- 1 sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn. (18 sc)
Row 23- 1 sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn. (18 sc) Fasten off Pumpkin, leaving long tail to sew with.
Row 24- Join Gold. Make 1 sc in each sc across. (18 sc) Ch 1, turn.
Row 25- 1 sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn. (18 sc) Ch 1, turn.
Row 26- 1 sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn. (18 sc) Fasten off Gold, leaving long tail to sew with.
Row 27- Join Carrot. Make 1 sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn. (18 sc)
Row 28 to 30- 1 sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn. (18 sc)
Row 31- 1 sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn. (18 sc) Fasten off Carrot, leaving long tail to sew with.
Side #1 (Back)-
Rep rows 19 to 31 just as you did for the Front.
Side #2 (Front)-
Row 19- Join Carrot, work 1 sc in each of next 18 sc. (18 sc) Ch 1, turn.
Rows 20 to 30- 1 sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn. (18 sc)
Row 31- 1 sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn. (18 sc) Fasten off Carrot, leaving long tail to sew with.
Side #2 (Back)-
Rep row 19 to 31 as for Side #2 Front. Fasten off, weave in tail.
Note- If, after having made the first 3 sides with 18 sc each, you find somehow that even thou you started with the right amount of stitches, you wind out with only 17 sts for the last side, don’t fret, that happens sometimes, simply make a 2 sc in the middle of the first row to make up the 18 sc you need for that side and continue to work normally as stated in the pattern.
Thread blunt needle and sew Front sides using tails. Fasten off, weave in ends. Repeat with Back. Sew sides of Body, weave in tails. Leave top open for now.

  1. Hello I tried going to the site that Clop Clop: Banjo the Pony and it says the page can be displayed or something. I wanted to buy this pattern. Is there any way I can or have you stopped selling patterns.
