EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

-------------------------------------------------------

COLOUR CHANGE:
To give the neatest transition when changing colours, work the last slip stitch of the round with the new colour as follows: Insert the hook into the first chain stitch from the beginning of the round, make a yarn over with the new colour and pull it through the stitch on the hook.
Ghost with black mouth – start piece like so: work the chain stitch ring and the first 2 rounds in black and change to white at the end of the second round.
Ghost with white mouth – start piece like so: work the chain stitch ring and the 1 round in white, change to black at the end of the first round, work 1 round with black and change back to white at the end of the round

PATTERN: See diagrams A.1- A.3, A.2 shows how the rounds start with chain stitch(es) and finish with a slip stitch in the first/third chain stitch at the beginning of the round.

STIFFENING
To make the ghost a little stiff – dip it in sugared water or colourless fizzy drink and lay flat to dry.

COASTER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round in a circle from the middle outwards.

COASTER:
Follow diagrams A.1 and A.2; start at the symbol in the middle – see COLOUR CHANGE. Work 5 chain stitches and form them into a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Then work according to diagrams A.1 and A.2; A.2 shows how the rounds start and finish. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION. When the diagrams have been completed, cut the strand and pull it through. Sew eyes on rounds 4 and 5 as shown in A.3, using black thread.
