Continue this pattern until you reach your desired length. I completed 10 rows in total.

Edging

At the end of your last row change colour and complete one final row. Cut, fasten off and weave in any loose ends

Arms (Make 2, use stitch markers if needed)

Foundation Row Make a magic ring and 6 single crochets in the center, Slip stitch in to the first stitch
Row 2 2 Single crochet in each stitch around (12)
Rows 3- 4 Single crochet in each stitch around
Row 5 * Single crochet 2 together, Single crochet 1 in the next 2 stitches. Repeat from* around.
Rows 6-13 You can change colour here if you want for long sleeves. Single crochet 1 in each stitch around.

Stuff the arm, push more of the stuffing into the hand. Leave a long tail , cut yarn and sew the top shut. Make sure you still have enough yarn tail to sew the arm to the blanky.

Head + Hair (Use markers if needed)

For the hair's base follow this pattern until row 10 then stop.

Foundation Row Make a magic ring and 6 single crochets in the center, Slip stitch in to the first stitch
Row 2  Ch 1, 2 single crochets in each stitch around, Slip stitch into the first stitch (12)

Row 6  Ch 1, *2 Single crochets in the first stitch, 1 Single crochet in the next 4 stitches, Repeat from* around, Slip stitch into the first stitch (36)
Rows 7-11  Ch 1, Single crochet in each stitch around. For rows 8-11 you don't need to slip stitch or chain 1. You can keep single crocheting around.


Row 12 *Single crochet 2 together, Single crochet 4. Repeat from* to end of row.
Row 13 *Single crochet 2 together, Single crochet 3. Repeat from* to end of row.
Row 14 * Single crochet 2, Single crochet 2 together,. Repeat from* to end of row.
Row 15 *Single crochet 2 together, Single crochet 1. Repeat from* to end of row. End with a decrease.

Weave in your ends then stuff the head.

Row 16 *Single crochet 2 together all the way around.

Leave a long tail, Cut yarn, Fasten and weave in the ends

Attach the hair base to the top of the head to an angle. Sew on the eyes. Attach all parts and weave the hair




Hair

You will need about 15-18 Inch length yarn to weave in for the hair. Fold them in half and with one strand at a time loop them around the edge of the hair base. Feel free to create your own style to the ones shown in the video. (Link above)
