Obviously this is not for use in water, but your crochet monkey doesn’t want to get wet anyway, does she? Maybe you can make her a little blanket and she can use it for camping!
Crochet Air Mattress
Pattern created by Gayle www.planetmfiles.com
Size: Approximately 8 inches long, 3 1/2 inches wide
Worsted weight yarn. I used Red Heart Super Saver, Color: Shocking Pink
Stitch marker (I use a small piece of a contrasting color of yarn)
Crochet Hook – Size G
Gauge: Not important
Abbreviations: sc = single crochet, ch = chain, sl st = slip stitch, st = stitch
Notes: The Tubes are made in rounds. Rounds are worked in continuous spirals, do not join. Do not turn at the end of each round.
Tubes (worked in rounds) – Make 3
8 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Mark first st for beginning of round and move marker up for each round.
1 sc in each sc around for 20 more rounds – 8 sc. in each round
- Sl st
- Finish each tube off leaving a long tail for sewing the three tubes together.
- Stuff with fiberfill. You can use the eraser end of a pencil or a dowel to push the stuffing all the way to the end.
Air Mattress Pillow
- Chain 12, turn
- sc in 2nd ch from hook and in the rest of the sc’s across, ch 1, turn – 12 (includes the ch 1) Do this for 15 rows.
- Fold the rectangle you just crocheted in half holding the top and bottom together and sc the top and bottom together – 11
- Finish off leaving a tail long enough to sew one side of the pillow together.
- Sew one side of the pillow together. This leaves one side open.
- Stuff the pillow with fiberfill.
- Sew remaining side closed so that the stuffed pillow is now completely closed.
- Sew the three tubes together.
- Sew the pillow to the tubes, closing the tubes as you sew them to the pillow.
You are finished!
