Crochet Witchie-Poo Block

Block Number 6 of 9
I have decided to take my Halloween block project in a different direction that I had originally planned. Mine will all be crocheted using post stitches ( I will be going back and remaking the rest too!) but, by all means, please continue with the stitch you have started with! 

This is Witchie-Poo! My girls are calling her 'This Silly Witch' :) we LOVE her!

For those of you that are just starting your Halloween graphs and want to use post stitches too here are the instructions:

* Start with a row of solid colored Foundation HDC. You will foundation HDC one for each square across the bottom of your block + 1.
*(start your graph in this row) CH 1, turn HDC in the first stitch FPDC in the next stitch and all the way across, place a regular HDC in the same stitch as the last FPDC.
* CH 1, turn. HDC in the last HDC from the previous row, BPDC across, 1 HDC in the first HDC from the previous row,
*alternate rows of FPDC and BPDC until your graph is finished.
* Your last row will be a row of FP or BP HDC depending on where you are in the sequence. 
*CH 1, SC around the whole block, placing 3 SC in each corner.
*Fasten off and weave in all the ends
