Pattern for Earl Lenmeyer the Flask

Totoro
I am finally getting around to posting my pattern for Earl Lenmeyer the Flask! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. (On Ravelry, I am craftyshanna)

Correction (incorporated below):
Round 5 (white): (sc in first four sc, INC {corrected from "dec"}) around (= 15 sc)

If you see any errors in the pattern, please let me know! I'm happy to fix them. This was my first pattern, so it was a bit sketchy. Several people have pointed out problems, so I hope it is now error free - but you never know!

Earl Lenmeyer the Flask



Materials:
Blue yarn (or color of your choice; any weight; size of flask will vary depending on yarn weight)
White yarn (same weight and preferably same brand as blue)
Size F crochet hook (or size needed for tight crochet
Two plastic safety eyes, googly eyes, or yarn/floss for embroidering eyes
Black embroidery floss
Fiberfill or other stuffing
Stitch marker

Gauge is not important. Finished size will vary depending on yarn weight, hook size, and tightness of crochet

Round 1: Magic Loop (or double ring) 6 stitches in blue or color of choice (or chain 2 and sc 6 times in 2nd chain from hook); place stitch marker. Move stitch marker to last stitch at end of each round.
Round 2: inc in each sc around (= 12 sc)
Round 3: (sc in first sc, inc in next sc) around (= 18 sc)
Round 4: (sc in first two sc, inc in next sc) around (= 24 sc)
Round 5: (sc in first three sc, inc in next sc) around (= 30 sc)
Round 6: (sc in first four sc, inc in next sc) around (= 36 sc)
Round 7: (sc in first five sc, inc in next sc) around (= 42 sc)

Round 24: (sc in first sc, dec) around (= 12 sc)
Stuff firmly.
Round 25: dec around (= 6 sc)
Pull tightly and finish off.


Round 1: Join white yarn in front loop of first sc of blue Round 23 and sc around (= 24 sc)
**Explanation- Since you only decreased in the back loops of round 23 above, there will still be 24 front loops into which the white can be joined and crocheted.**

Rounds 3 – 4: sc around
Round 5: (sc in first four sc, dec) around (= 15 sc)
Rounds 6 – 10: sc around

Hehe. As soon as I saw Earl, into my head popped a line of Earls going from smallest to largest, lined up in rainbow formation! If I ever actually execute this idea, I'll be sure to let you know :)
