Night of the Living Poodles

 
Crocheted Bottle Cover, Patterns from Bazaar Novelties and Gifts by Beehive, c. 1960

PoodleFest, part 2, AKA Attack of the Killer Poodles!

Because there’s no such thing as too many poodles. Except when they want to eat your brains.

If you’re very diligent you can make one or two a day, quietly stashing them around the house.

See how long it takes for your domestic partner to notice the increasing population of poodles. Kind of like in Hitchcock’s The Birds.

Reassure your beloved that it’s not a hint, or a threat.

Although you certainly wouldn’t say no to a real live poodle, like the one on the cover of your pattern book. Doesn’t he look soft and cuddly?

For the complete pattern (and more snark!):

CROCHETED BOTTLE COVER

HEAD: Beginning at top, Ch. 3. Join with s.s. to form ring.

1st round: 6 s.c. in ring.

2nd round: 2 s.c. in each s.c. of previous round.

3rd round: * 2 s.c. in 1 s.c. 1 s.c. in next s.c. Repeat from * to end of round.

4th round: * 2 s.c. in 1 s.c. 1 s.c. in each of next 2 s.c. Repeat from * to end of round. (24 s.c. in round). Worked firmly, this circle should measure 1 3/4 ins. in diameter.

Work even in rounds of s.c. until work measures 4 inches from centre. Fasten off. (lower edge).

NOSE: Ch. 3. Join with s.s. to form ring.

1st round: 8 s.c. in ring.

Work even in rounds of s.c. until work measures 1 1/4 inch from centre. Fasten off. Sew to head about 3/4 inch from lower edge.

With a contrasting colour, sew about 6 sts. over tip of nose to accent it as illustrated.
I like how we can choose any colour we like, just so long as it’s contrasting. Depending on your choice of main colour, Blood Red, Ghoul Green, or Decomposing Peacock would all be appropriate choices.
EARS: Ch. 21. 3 tr. in 5th Ch. from hook. 1 tr. in each of next 15 Ch. 6 tr. in last Ch.

Working along other side of Ch. work 1 tr. in each of next 15 Ch. 3 tr. in last Ch. Join to tr. at beginning with s.s. Fasten off. Make another ear to correspond. Press lightly. Sew to top of head about 3/4 inch apart.

BODY: Beginning at bottom, Ch. 3. Join with s.s. to form ring.

1st round: * Ch. 4. 1 s.c. in ring. Repeat from * 3 times more. (4 spaces in all).

2nd round: * Ch. 4. 1 s.c. in next space. Ch. 4. 1 s.c. in same space. Repeat from * 3 times more. (8 spaces in round).

3rd round: * Ch. 4. 1 s.c. in next space. Ch. 4. 1 s.c. in same space. Ch. 4. 1 s.c. in next space. Repeat from * 3 times more. (12 spaces in round).

4th round: * Ch. 4. 1 s.c. in next space. Repeat from * to end of round. (12 spaces in round).

Repeat 4th round until work measures 7 1/2 ins. from centre, or until it fits bottle neatly up to neck.

Next round: * Ch. 3. 1 s.c. in next space. Repeat from * to end of round. Fasten off. Make a chain 12 ins. long. Darn in ends. Press lightly. Thread through last round of spaces. Tack at centre back, so that it cannot be pulled out accidentally.

POMPONS: for making, see Large Size Knitted Bottle Covers in left column.
Or in previous PoodleFest post.

ETA - it's just occurred to me that nowhere in this pattern are we instructed to attach the heads. Maybe the heads are meant to be unattached. Maybe these zombie-poos come pre-decapitated!

ETA x 2 - Look! It's Nearly Headless Fifi!

OMG! I can actually remember making these! We filled the bottles with sand and used them for door stops. Can you believe it?! I guess they must have all run away from home at some point in time.......

Victoria Dunnsaid...

Well can you blame them? You used them as door stops!

They're probably sitting in the Main Street Museum right now telling horror stories about the life they escaped. ;-)
