A Crochet Pill Pattern - Use as Directed... but if symptoms persist, please see your Doctor.

Anybody else stuck in hand to fist combat with a nasty cold or virus at the moment? This may be the pattern for you....
Any ply is fine depending on the size you are after - I used 2 different colours of 8ply wool, a 3.5mm hook and stuffing. Have fun. Also, I am writing this under the influence of some strange mutated and cruel bug (as I tend to think of colds) so please ask me any questions if something makes no sense.

ss - slip stitch
sc - single crochet (the U.S. version)
ch - chain
yarn a - first colour used for pill
yarn b - second colour used for pill

Begin with yarn a.
Ch 2 then 6sc into 2nd ch from hook. Ss into first st. (6)
Round 1. *Sc into first st, then 2sc into following st. *Repeat until end of round. (9)
Rounds 2 - 4. *1sc into each st until end of round. (9)
Change to yarn b.
Rounds 3 - 7. *1sc into each st until end of round. (9)
Round 8. *1sc into each of the next 2 sts, then skip the following st. *Repeat until end of round (6)
Tie off with a needles and tuck in ends. When finishing a pill, I tend to gather up the final round into a circle with the needle and pull them together, then tie off.

Good luck,
love kate xxxooxxx.
