Blooregard Q Kazoo

Hi guys!  I have a pattern for all you lovely pumpkins!  Bloo from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.  I decided to make this little guy to be part of my Halloween costume, and thought I should share the pattern with all of you.  So I'm gonna stop the yacking and get to the pattern!

Blooregard Q Kazoo
I put a can of soda next to him for size reference
Materials
WW yarn in a "Bloo" shade of blue, and a bit of white (I used RHSS in Delft Blue and White)
G hook
6 mm saftey eyes
stuffing



Eyes: w/white, make 2
Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic (6)
Rnd 2: Inc in each sc around (12)
Rnd 3: (inc, sc) repeat around (18)
F/O w/a long tail for sewing.  Place your saftey eyes in these pieces either smack-dab in the center, or just where they would look best for the expression you want your Bloo to have.
Head/Body: W/blue
Rnd 1: 6sc in magic ring (6)
Rnd 2: Inc in each sc around (12)
Rnd 3: (Sc 1, inc) repeat around (18)
Rnd 4: (Sc 2, inc) repeat around (24)
Rnd 5: (Sc 3, inc) repeat around (30)
Rnd 6: (Sc 4, inc) repeat around (36)
Rnd 7: (Sc 5, inc) repeat around (42)
Rnd 8: (Sc 6, inc) repeat around (48)
Rnd 9: (Sc 7, inc) repeat around (54)
Rnd 10: (Sc 8, inc) repeat around (60)
Rnds 11-40: Sc in each sc around (60)
F/O w/a tail roughly the length of your crochet hook.  Sew your eyes on now, top part lined up with rnd 13, if you wish to do so at this point.  Make sure the eyes touch just a wee bit!  I sew them on at this point, as it's very easy to just tuck the ends into the plush.  Now's also a good time to give you Bloo a mouth, then start stuffing him!

Bottom: w/blue
Rnds 1-11: Repeat rnds 1-11 of the body.  F/O w/a long tail for sewing.  Using that tail, sew the bottom to the last rnd of Head/Body, adding any last stuffing needed before sewing completely shut.

Arms: w/blue (make 2[optional])
Rnd 1: 6 sc in MR (6)
Rnd 2: Inc in each sc around (12)
Rnd 3: (sc, inc) repeat around (18)
Rnd 4-8: sc even (18)
Rnd 9: (sc 4, dec) repeat around (15)
Rnd 10-11: sc even (15)
Rnd 12: (sc 3, dec) repeat around (12)
Rnd 13-14: sc even (12) Start stuffing
Rnd 15: (sc 2, dec) repeat around (9)
Rnd 16-17: sc even (9)
Rnd 18: sc 3, dec, sc 4 (8)
Rnd 19: sc even (8)
F/O w/long tail for sewing.  Finish stuffing.  Press the opening shut and sew flat.  Sew arms to Bloo's sides at Rnd 20 of the Head/Body piece.

And that's it!  You now have a plushie of Bloo!
