Fortnightly Friday Freebies! Dango Pattern

So I here I am back again, this time wanting to share the pattern for the dango hairclip that I have made just a few days ago. It was quite an easy pattern to make up but a lot of fun and it's really quick if you need something cute to go with your outfit!

So this is what you'll need to make the Hanami Dango Hairclip. 
*three sets of 7.5mm plastic eyes

*Yarn in the colours you want. I went with the colours above and the brown is for the dango stick
*Bobby pin or whatever you would like to use to attach to your hair later.

Dango Balls (make 3, one in each colour)
Round 1: CH2, SCx6 in the 2nd stitch from the hook (6)
Round 2: 2SCx6 (12)
Round 3: [2SC, SC]x6 (18)
Round 4 - 6: SCx18 (18, 3 rounds)
Attach the eyes now. I put them between rounds 4 and 5. They're about 4 - 5 stitches apart.
Round 7. [SC2tog, SC]x6 (12)
Round 8. SC2togx6 (6)
Depending on how comfortable you are stuffing things, you might want to stuff before completing round 8 and then stuff a little more or you can stuff after round 8 which is what I did.
Then sew closed. 

For the green ball you can cut off the tail. Leave a semi long tail for the pink ball and a longer tail for the white. 

You can then needlefelt or embroider on the mouth. It would be really cute to give them a variety of expressions. I chose with the C: face because it's my favourite. 

Dango Stick
Round 1: CH2, SCx6 in the 2nd stitch from the hook (6)
Round 2 - 6: SCx6 (6, 5 rounds)
Leave a tail and sew onto the bottom of the green ball.

Then sew the white ball to the green ball. Then bring the yarn tail to the back of the white ball and sew on the bobby pin or whichever hair accessory you chose.

Sew the pink ball to the top of the white ball.

And there you have a cute little dango hair accessory!~
