My oldest grandson, Jacob, has been asking me for months to crochet him a pistol/handgun.  He likes pretending he's a cop.  So, this morning, I finally sit down and worked up a basic pattern.  I will post the free pattern on my blog for anyone who is interested in making one.

St = stitch
Inc = increase
Dec = decrease

    1. Hi, Grace. In #12, you will start with a chain 2 and single crochet in the second chain from the hook. You will then single crochet in the first stitch of the previous row. Now, chain 4 and then make an extended single crochet in the second chain from the hook and chain 1. Now you will skip the 2 remaining chains of the chain 4 you made. Then skip the next 3 stitches of row 11. Now, single crochet in next 9 stitches and make a decrease with the last 2 stitches. For a total of 13 stitches.
