TIP: If your starting stitch is in a different position than mine, the arms will be in a different position. To avoid that, find the 5 central stitches in the front of the doll. This should be the distance between one arm to another. Having these 5 central stitches, adjust the position of where you should crochet together the arm with the body.

ASSEMBLY

  1. Sew the ears between rounds 28 to 32 of the head.
  2. Fasten the mouth with pins to help you while sewing. Place the mouth on between rounds 21 and 22 of the head (or two rounds above the neck), finishing 6 rounds up.
  3. Embroider the eyes on round 28 of the toy, leaving 2 stitches between them. With yellow, embroider one line on the outside of the eye.
  4. With a piece of dark pink yarn, embroider the nose on top of the mouth, one round under the eyes.
  5. For the final detail, cut a little bit of dark pink yarn and add it on top of the head. I add about 10 pieces. Once you add them, use a comb or the needle to fuzzy the yarn. Then, cut the extra fuzzy yarn reaching the size of the hair you want (about the same height or a bit more than the ears).
