So another friend of mine is pregnant, go figure, and I have yet another something to make. These friends are big into Dr. Who so I thought it would be pretty funny to do something from the show in crochet. Thought about the Tardis but I thought that might be a bit obvious. Then I remembered that a long time ago I had found a Dalek pattern and saved it. Perfect.

15-16: hdc in 6, 2 hdc in next, repeat. (48 stitches)
So I did that increase for both rows. Only later to realize that row 15 alone creates 48 and after 16 I then had 56... Leading into two rows later having the 63 instead of 54... What so what it really should have said was row 15, do the increase, row 16, one hdc in each to maintain count of 48.
So of course I had to rip out four rows of work to get it to match the stitch count.

|Don't exterminate my dog!|
Now the baby Dalek is ready to exterminate anything that might try to harm its new human master.
