Days Of Creation Play Book...

Well, I finished my Days of Creation Play Book this afternoon.  Yay!!!  I'm sure my grand babies are going to enjoy playing with it plus it's a simple visual aid to actually teach the 7 Days of Creation....



This was a great stash buster project -- not too much of any one color!!!!  I designed all of the appliqués that were used, even my own letters and numbers.  This was a little time consuming for me since I was designing each pattern - some portions were taken apart multiple times before I was finally happy with the end result.  Plus, I was trying to keep each pattern in the easiest explanation format so that even a beginner could tackle and complete.  

Color choices are optional -- use what you have!!!  I used a mixture of "I Love This Yarn" from Hobby Lobby and Redheart Supersaver.  So, I just had to watch my gauge and made sure everything sized up correctly.  I used multiple hook sizes in this project.  I tried to create a "split screen" on several of the pages so I had to adjust my hooks to make some of the appliqués smaller to fit.  

The finished book measures approximately 9" x 9". So, it's a nice, big size for those little hands...lol. 

Days of Creation Pattern

Difficulty Level:  Easy

Materials:
 --Hook sizes 1.75mm (used for the Creation letters on the cover); 6mm (used to make book cover);
5mm (used to make the clasp for the book cover); 5.5mm (used to make the pages and appliques); 4mm (used to make appliques); 4.5mm (used to make the numbers and letters for the pages); 3.5mm (used to make stars)
--#4 worsted weight yarn in your colors of choice (I will specify below in each section the colors I used)
--(1) 1" button for the book cover clasp - I used a black button
--tapestry needle for weaving

Abbreviations:
Ch: chain
Sl st: slip stitch
St: stitch(es)
Sk:  skip
SC: Single Crochet
HDC:  Half Double Crochet
DC:  Double Crochet
TC:  Triple Crochet
SC2tog:  Single Crochet 2 stitches together
SC3tog:  Single Crochet 3 stitches together
MR: magic ring
FO: fasten off

Special Note:  The book pages are stitched together but the book cover is free standing with a clasp to cover/protect the pages (sorta, like a Bible cover).  So, you can remove the cover and just give the pages to your toddler/child to read and play with!!!

Special Stitch:
Picot Stitch:  ch3 and sl st into first ch
Puff Stitch:  3 DC into same st; however, don't complete the final step of the DC in the first 2.  On the third DC is when you will complete the stitch.

r:  Ch8, SC in 2nd ch and across.  FO.
e:  Ch19,  SC in 2nd ch and across.  FO.
a:  Ch3, SC in 2nd ch and across.  Make 18 rows; then 2 sc on the side for the slight curve.
t:  Ch10, SC in 2nd ch and next 2, picot, SC in remaining ch.  Rotate and sl st up base ch and make another picot parallel to the first picot st made.  FO.

Leave long enough tails for attaching each letter to the book cover.  A few of the letters will have to be whipstitched to shape (e, a, o).  Shape and pin each letter to attach.

Whew!!!  This took me several hours to type.  I pray there's no typos.  If you come across something that doesn't make sense or if I omitted something, please comment or email me so I can correct it!!!!
