Tips and tricks of the pattern:

  1. Color changing – When you switch colors do it always before you finish your last st of the prev color yarn. Just change color before your last YO of prev st and YO with new color then pull through the hook with the new yarn . Here is example with colors – insert your hook into the last stitch of Colour A. Pull up a loop in Colour A. Then yarn over in Colour B to complete the stitch. Continue with Colour B until you need to switch again.

When you change color make sure that you are dropping the yarn in the back of your panel if you wish you can put a stitch marker of the Right side of the panel or piece of string so you will never wonder which one is the correct side.

  1. Incorporating different colors – You can use fair isle crochet technique when changing colors or you can just pull them from back without cutting yarn. Just be sure that you keep the yarn at the backside of panel. In the pattern when we make the head we will need to work different color stitches of some rows. The whole pattern is made using single crochet stitch so when we incorporate different colors the stitches will be indicated with the letter of the color . For example – “ 6W, 12CR , 6W ” – so it means that you should make first 6 stitches with White color, the next 12 with Cream , and last 6 with White color.When it says “ decW” – it means you should decrease with white color yarn .
  2. Do not forget – Make ch 1 and  turn at the end of each row.

We will not join the hand pieces with single crochet stitch as we usual do in other rag dolls. We will join them 2 by 2 with tapestry needle by sewing the to each other as in the picture bellow:

Assembling pieces together. It doesn’t matter where you will start assembling for .

It will be easier if you attach the small parts on the body and face first then join the 2 body panel together.

  1. Insert the eyes in the 37th row leave 3 or 4 sts space between eyes.
  2. Sew the nose in the middle between eyes but 2-3 rows bellow.
  3. Make mouth using black string and tapestry needle.
  4. Sew buttons onto the body – I used 3 small buttons.
  5. Assemble two body panels.
  6. Stuff doll as you join along.

When you join two body panels make sure that the right side of front panel is facing you while you are crocheting with single crochet stitch around .

As you crochet along the outside, you will need to switch colours where appropriate. When switching colours, insert your hook into the last stitch of Colour A. Pull up a loop in Colour A. Then yarn over in Colour B to complete the stitch. Continue with Colour B until you need to switch again.

We will join the 2 body panels with single crochet. Do not sew the hands on the back panel we will join them as we crochet along with single stitch. You can start wherever you wish . When you get to the hand , insert the hand piece between the two body panels and make sl.st instead of single crochet. Join all the 3 pieces together.
