Tickety Tock, from “Blues Clues”

Designer Unknown
Illustrated by: Evelyn McDermand

I received a request for this pattern. I was sure that I’ve seen a pattern for this done already, so I started searching but didn’t find it on the internet. I searched my completed beadie collection and came across this beadie that I made almost 10 years ago. I believe that this pattern may have been posted on a page which no longer exists.  I’ve decided to illustrate the pattern and post it.  It’s just too cute not to share!  Thanks to the unknown designer for an awesome pattern.

2½  yards ribbon, cord or plastic lacing
1 key ring or lanyard hook
34 white pony beads
22 light blue or blue glow-in-the-dark pony beads
20 hot pink pony beads
15 black pony beads
2 clear pony beads
Black sharpie marker or craft paint pen for drawing on eyes and clock face numbers.
Red sharpie marker or craft paint pen for drawing on mouth.

*Note: for presentation purposes, I just printed numbers on a piece of paper and used a hole punch to cut out and paste the clock face numbers. A sharpie marker works well though. 


Special Instructions: Pay close attention to the string path around the feet. This took me awhile to figure out.  When you get to the row with the 2 pink and 3 white beads at the bottom, lace on 4 black beads on one strand.  Using that same strand, weave back through the second and 4th black bead, and then back through the pink bead.  Do the same for the other strand.  Both strands should end up on the outside of the pink bead of the last row with the feet being completed.  Then take one strand and weave it back through the 4th black bead and lace on 3 pink beads.  Continue weaving the strand through the 4th bead of the other foot.  Both strands should end up on the same side so a tie a knot and you’re done.
