Free Crochet Patterns for "Bao"(叉烧包)- Amigurumi Food

中国的美食遍布全世界,所有的粥、粉、麺、饭都是大家平日的主食。而我这个自认“老饕”的家伙,当然也是美食的钟爱者。(有肚腩可以证明,哈哈~~!)
今天在这儿介绍的钩针编织物,就是把我两种“喜爱”融合在一起,现在的市场上把这样的“东西”称为—Amigurumi Food. 现在就把“蒸包子”端上桌面,让大家好好的用双眼来品嚐。

材料:-
  • 白色棉线(双线)
  • 8.5mm 娃娃眼睛 x 2
  • 人造棉


用具:-
  • 5/0 号钩针
  • 腮红粉 / 木颜色


文解:-
8
加短针8
(加短针,短针)8
(加短针,短针2针)8
(加短针,短针3针)8
短针 5
(减短针,短针3针)8
*在这个时候,请加上娃娃眼睛,过后可以继续的编织。
短针4
*先编织1针短针,第二针短针在第6个短针的位子钩上,用以扭曲包子头顶部位的皱褶。
剩下5针断短针,开始往包子的身体塞入人造棉,最后使用针线缝合即可。


What you’ll need:-
  • Worsted-weight yarn, white color
  • F/5 3.75mm crochet hook
  • Poly-Fil or any stuffing of your choice
  • Yarn needle
  • Two 8.5mm plastic safety eyes


Abbreviation key:-
  • sc = single crochet
  • ch = chain
  • sl st = slip stitch
  • st/sts = stitch/stitches
  • dec = decrease (join next 2 sts into 1)
  • inc = increase (2 sc in next st)
  • BLO = back loop only
  • FLO = front loop only


Notes:-
  • Chinese Traditional Bao - Cha Siew Bao(叉烧包). One of the dim sum for 'Yam Cha' culture with family on Sunday morning.  Gauge is not important – just keep a consistent tension throughout the entire project.
  • Crochet in a spiral. Use something to mark the first stitch of a round, and move it up as you work. 
  • “The Magic Circle” is use to start each piece. Alternative technique: ch 2, then sc x6 into the second chain away from the hook. Slip stitch to join the round. This creates Round 1.


Traditional Chinese Food (Bao):-
Use White colour yarn. 
Round 1: Magic Circle with a base of 8 stitches
Round 2: inc x8 = 16 sts
Round 3: (1 inc, sc in next st) x8 = 24 sts
Round 4: (1 inc, sc in next 2 sts) x8 = 32 sts
Round 5: (1 inc, sc in next 3 sts) x8 = 40 sts
Round 6-10: sc in next 40 stitches = 40 sts
Round 11: (1 dec, sc in next 3 sts) x8 = 32 sts
*Insert the Plastic Safety Eyes between Round 8 & Round 9 and attach washers. Eyes should be about 6 sts apart.
Round 12-15: sc in next 32 stitches = 32 sts
Round 16: (sc 1 st, then skip 5 sts, sc 2nd at the 6th) x5 = 5 sts

Round 17: Fasten off and leave a 6” tail for sewing. Sew the body shut.
