Straight from the buff layer and into your heart! Crochet a super-huge version of the fighting superhero of the circulatory system, the white blood cell, or WBC for short. Makes a fast, easy, cute gift for a special nurse or pre-med student, or to give happy thoughts and support to an ill friend.

For extra plasma-inspired cuteness, pair it with my Red Blood Cell and Platelet Cell patterns, available here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/red-blood-cell-cr...

Finished WBC is about 4 inches (10 cm) in diameter. You will need an F/3.75mm hook, worsted-weight yarn, two 9mm or 10mm black eyes, polyester fiberfill stuffing, and black embroidery floss.

Pattern is for those with beginning to intermediate crochet skills and basic needle-work skills. Cell is made in spiral rounds. To make WBC, you will need to know how to:
-- read a crochet pattern
-- chain
-- single crochet
-- single crochet decrease or invisible decrease
-- optional: magic adjustable loop

Pattern includes:
-- definitions of stitch abbreviations
-- materials list, including recommended yarn and where to find mat’ls
-- instructive photos
-- links to helpful online crochet tutorials
