Tips ~ To join small amounts of yarn I love to use the Russian Join, This method is wonderful for making a seamless join without having ends to weave in! Click HERE for an instructional video

I also like to start with the Magic Ring, This method makes a nice beginning when working in the round. 


Body – You will be changing color to meet your own personal taste. I like using 5-6 colors.

Magic Ring

Row 1: Ch 1, Sc 6 in Magic Ring. Join with Sl St = 6 Sc

Row 2: Ch 1, 2 Sc in each St around. Join with Sl St = 12 Sc

Row 3: Ch 1, Sc around. Join with Sl St = 12 Sc

Row 4: Ch 1, (2 Sc in first St, 1 Sc in next St) repeat around. Join with Sl St. = 18 Sc

Row 5: Ch 1, Sc around. Join with Sl St = 18 Sc

Row 6: Ch 1, (2 Sc in first St, 1 Sc in next two Sts) repeat around. Join with Sl St = 24 Sc

Row 7-16: Ch 1, Sc around. Join with Sl St = 24 Sc

1st Leg~

Row 1: Ch 1, Sc in the first 12 Sts, Join to 1st Sc. Leave remaining Sts unworked (this will be worked next for the second leg) = 12 Sc

Row 2-7: Ch 1, Sc around. Join with Sl St. = 12 Sc

Row 8: Ch 1, Dec Sc 6 times. Join with Sl St. = 6 Sc. Finish off leaving a long tail for sewing foot together.

With yarn needle, draw yarn through the 6 Sc and pull together to close. Weave in end.

2nd Leg~

Row 1: Join yarn in any remaining St of body base. Ch 1, Sc around remaining 12 Sts. Join with Sl St. If you have more that 12 Sts, use a Dec Sc so you only have 12 Sts for the second leg also. = 12 Sc

Rows 2-8: Repeat rows 2-8 for Leg 1. Before finishing off, stuff doll with Poly-Fil. Finish off in the same manner as Leg 1.


Use 3-8 different colors of yarn for hair.

Make 8

Starting with a 2″tail – Chain 21, 2 Hdc in 3rd Ch from hook, 3 Hdc in each St to end. Finish off leaving a 2″ tail = 56 Hdc The Hdc chain will naturally curl. Tie the 2-2″ tails into a knot. These ends will also be used for attaching the Hair to the head.

*Use Picture for Hair and Button placement

Attaching Hair: Using the 2 tails left on each piece of hair, tie each curl to the top of the head in a random order.

Bangs: Cut several pieces of scrap yarn into 4″ pieces. Using 2 strands at a time, attach in a fringe method to the bang area. Trim bangs evenly

Eyes: Sew 2 Black Buttons onto face directly below bangs

Decorative Button for hair. Sew button into hair
