After making the black puffles for my kids, they hinted that skateboarding is what makes their new pets the most happy. They also just happened to mention that as good puffle owners, they needed to provide said entertainment for them. I obliged.
This simple pattern will take you 15 minutes at most and is worked in rows. Note that you will always start the new row in the second ch from hook unless otherwise noted.
4 large plastic beads (for the wheels)
Row 1: 21 sc, ch 2, turn
Row 2: 22 sc, ch 2, turn
Row 3: 23 sc, ch 1, turn
Row 4: 23 sc, ch 1, turn
Row 5: 23 sc, ch 1 turn
Row 6: sctog2, 19 sc, sctog2, ch 1, turn
Row 7: 19 sc, sctog2, ch 1 turn
Row 8: sl st 20 across
Continue to sl st around the rest of the circumference (8 sl st on short side, 21 sl st on foundation ch, 9 sl st on short side)
Sl st into last ch of Row 7
F.O. & Weave ends
The board should be slightly concave after the sl st "oval" is complete. Find the bottom of board and position the 4 bead "wheels" using yarn or embroidery thread to secure them to skateboard. Weave ends.
Voila! One perfect fitting skateboard for the puffle pattern I posted!
Variation: Don't put beads on and you have a snowboard ;)
