Numbers

 
These numbers were made to go with the Birthday Party Hat pattern. 

 Of course, they can be used for any project!

Here's the pattern:


MATERIALS
Worsted Weight Yarn
G/4.0mm Hook
Yarn Needle

STITCH GUIDE
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
esc = extended single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
sc = single crochet
YO = yarn over

SIZE
4” tall (approx.) using worsted weight yarn and G hook.
This will vary with hook and yarn choices.

Written in US terms


 
NOTES
*Some numbers may need to be shaped slightly while attaching to your project.
*Beginning chains do not count as stitches
*For double digit birthdays, I suggest using a DK Weight or Light Worsted Weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton & Bernat Handicrafter  to make the numbers above.
SPECIAL STITCHES
extended single crochet (esc) = insert hook in stitch, draw up a loop, YO, pull through first loop on hook, YO, pull through both loops on hook. This is used in place of a double crochet when starting a row.
