Materials:You will need: Size "E" crochet hook, sewing/embroidery needle to apply the face, Worsted weight (Red Heart) yarn, stitch marker, fiber fill or appropriate stuffing, And what you have on hand to make a face, hair, etc
Pattern note:
Rows are works in continuous rounds. Continue to next row-do not slip stitch at end of rows.
The rows are increased, then worked in even rows until you begin the decrease rows.

A total of 18 sc.

Add Your Face Now-
*Sew in face (I am using "easy-sew eyes" and Embroidery thread.)

Different color and add a decorative row to the front loop, then change colors
And attach to that back look for a hat, etc.

Loops to decrease.) Repeat from *around (14 sc.)
