About: Not THAT kind of hooker. The kind armed with a crochet hook. ;)

I crocheted a little horde of zombies! One of them already has a brain to eat, so you don't need to worry about that lil' dude.

Basic zombie head and body shapes adapted from "Cyber Zombie" pattern found in "Creepy Cute" by Christen Haden.
Crocheted with an E-sized hook, using both cotton and acrylic yarn. Filled with polypellets and polyfil.

    Love these Zombies! The are amazing. Quick question - if I join the instructables pro does the pdf show how to make these little guys at all?

    As far as I'm concerned, the pdf's just show exactly what's shown on the instructable, just in pdf form...so no pattern. But if it helps, they're all adapted from the "cyber zombie" pattern found in Creepy Cute by Christen Haden. I just tweaked everything else to my own undead-liking!

    The lil' brain isn't in the book...just kinda did that one on the fly! Unfortunately I didn't write down how I made it, but if I had to do a REALLY rough outline, it was done in two halves, with each half done something like this:
    Round 1: SC 6 in a magic ring
    Round 2: [SC 2, inc 1]x2 (total 8 stitches)
    Round 3: [SC 2, dec1]x2 (total 6 stitches)

    I sewed the two halves together at the open end, and the rest of it just kinda had to be smushed around to get it looking er...brainy, haha. I also used single threads of red embroidery floss to stitch tightly down the middle to pull the middle demarcation (the corpus callosum, if you will) down a little deeper and make it clearer. I also used single threads of red embroidery floss along random stitches to make it look a little more uh...vein-y (sounds gross, I know, ha!). Sorry if it sounds vague, I just kinda did it by the seat of my pants, but I hope that helps a bit! :)
