Crochet Orange Wedding Couple

I made this for my newly wed coworker who calls herself “Big Orange”.

For the bride, I used worsted orange yarn and a 4 mm crochet hook, following the pattern (Click here) for “26 Row Sphere” and mine measured 3.5″ in diameter.

For the groom, I made up my own pattern:
R1: 6 sc in magic ring. – 6 sc.
R2: 2 sc in each sc around. – 12 sc.
R3: *sc 1, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. – 18 sc.
R4: * sc in first 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. – 24 sc.
R5: * sc in first 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. – 30 sc.
R6: *sc in first 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. – 36 sc.
R7: *sc in first 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 6 times. – 42 sc.

Fasten off and finish stuffing.

For the stem, I chained 7 and single crocheted down in 6 chains. Fasten off.

I made leaves (click here for pattern) for the groom and 1 bow (click here for pattern) and 1 leaf for the bride.

Last but not least, add facial features and accessories (e.g. veil) and you are done! 🙂
