Spooky Amigurumi Ghost

Here's the start of my first holiday series! A cute little ghost for Halloween!

This little guy works out to be 3 inches tall when worked in worsted weight yarn and size F hook.

He's worked in rounds, to be sure to use some sort of stitch marker!

ch 4 and sl st to form ring.
Row 1:  1 sc 6 into the ring (6 sts)
Row 2:  2 sc in each sc around (12 sts)
Row 3:  1 sc in 1 sc, 2 sc in next sc, repeat around  (18 sts)
Row 4-11:  Sc in each sc around (18 sts)
