Jesse Tree Crochet Advent Calendar: December 2

Creation

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, 'Let there be light,' and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light 'day,' and the darkness he called 'night.' And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.

"Then God said, 'Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.' So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them."


- Genesis 1:1-5, 26-27

This pattern uses American crochet terminology.

Notes: 
  • This pattern is worked in the round without joining or turning between rounds. To help keep track of rounds, it may be helpful to place a stitch marker in the first stitch of each round.
  • This pattern is also worked in tapestry crochet. Since this pattern is not turned between rounds, the graph will always be read from right to left and from bottom to top (the bottom row of the graph represents Rnd 1).
  • Rnd 1-7 and 15-20 are shaping rounds. Special attention must be paid to these rounds, as you will be counting increases/decreases and colors at the same time. For color counting purposes, 2 sc worked in the same stitch counts as 2 squares on the graph. 1 sc decrease counts as 1 square on the graph. All other sc each count as 1 square on the graph.
  • The graph represents a distorted version of the final globe. Due to the nature of increases and decreases, your stitches will not appear to line up correctly with the previous row in the graph.
