More About This Pattern

The body of the crochet doll is worked from top-down, with the arms crocheted after and stitched to the body. The hat is made as a separate piece and placed on the doll’s head, with the ears stitched to each side. Using different colors can create a brown bear or a panda bear.

The colorways for this pattern are written as:

Oyster Heather or Camel Heather Yarn - Color A Black Yarn - Color B

White Yarn held together with lace white yarn - Color C Graphite Heather - Color D

Special Stitches:

Cross stitch single crochet: this variation of a crochet stitch works the stitch tighter and creates an ‘X’ on the front of the stitch. To work a single crochet stitch this way, insert your hook into the stitch, yarn under, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through both loops on the hook. This way of working the single crochet stitch is used for the hat and the body.

Magic Circle: Start by creating a loop with your yarn. The tail of the working yarn will be over the work- ing end. Insert your hook into the loop from behind. Yarn over and pull through the loop. Ch 1, Work all of your indicated stitches into the loop. Pull the tail end of your yarn to close the loop. Pull firmly to fasten the loop closed, this end will be weaved in and fastened off.

sc2tog invisible decrease: Insert your hook into the flo of the next stitch, insert your hook into the flo of the next stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over and complete stitch.
