This is the final mystery box zipper charm of my little, Super Mario mini series! My son's birthday party was last week, and I will be blogging soon, about all the fun things we did to create his Super Mario theme! Until then, enjoy the patterns! You can find them all together, listed at the bottom of this blog!
Worsted weight yarn in white, yellow, orange, and green (use light and dark blue for ice), and a very small amount of black.
Crochet hook, E-3.5mm
*Optional: plastic lobster clasps for making a fun zipper charm!
Terms and abbreviations to know:
ch, chs - chain, chains
st, sts - stitch, stitches
rnd, rnds - round, rounds
sc - single crochet
sl st - slip stitch
foundation sc - this stitch is creating the chain AND the stitch together, without making the chain first. Follow the pictures and captions below for more details. It's not as hard as it sounds!
Notes: This pattern is worked in four parts, and then sewn together; two flowers and two stems. The flower is worked in a rnd with no joining. Each stem is worked up in rows, in one piece using a combination of sts. Follow the pictures for more instructions on this.

Flower, make 2
Begin with magic ring, in white.
Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic ring; 6 sts

Change to yellow or light blue and fasten off white.

Rnd 4: (inc, sc in next 2 sts)6x; 24 sts
Fasten off, leaving long tail for sewing.
Using black yarn, sew the eyes into the white on one of the flowers, to make the face. Then, sew them together, back to back to make one, thick flower.
Stem and leaves, make 2
*Note: This is a little tricky at first! It is just creating a shape. You will begin with the first leaf, then work up and back down the stem, and then add the last leaf. It is all written on one line to avoid the confusion of splitting it up into rows.
