Jelly, from "P, B and J Otter"

designed by Evelyn McDermand

 

Materials:

 

3 1/2 yards ribbon, cord or plastic lacing
1 key ring or lanyard hook
55 hot pink pony beads
39 white pony beads
16 purple pony beads
4 black pony beads
Black sharpie marker or craft paint for drawing on eyes.
 

Special Instructions:  Begin pattern as usual starting with the first row of  4 purple beads.  Lace a hot pink bead onto each strand.  Follow the string path carefully and finish making the hair by lacing on 6 purple beads onto one strand and weaving back up through two beads and out the last purple bead.  Repeat on other side.  Make the second and third row of the head.  Attach the hair to the head by going through one of the purple beads (as shown), before the next row. 

 

For the legs:  When you reach the second row of the body from the bottom, follow the string path carefully.  Notice that you do not go through the pink beads a second time.  Instead, your strands should come out on either side of the white beads.  Make the legs, then add the last row of 3 white beads.  After the last row, weave the strands back through the pink beads to attach and knot.
