PATTERN

ELIAH ELLIE PART 1 – BOY & GIRL

HEAD

Lightly stuffed and worked in the round.

Helpful hint: move the stitch marker and place in the last stitch of each row and this will help keep your stitch count correct and help with row counting, and because we are working quite tightly in the round, I weave my beginning tail in whilst working round 2.

Using colour (A) make a mc

Round 1

ch 1, sc 6 into mc, place stitch marker in 6th sc and continue to work in the round (6 sc)

Round 2

sc 2 into each st (12 sc)

Helpful hint: with my patterns, I usually always start with an increase in the 1st stitch, so if your increase stitch falls in the first stitch of the increase stitch from the last row, your stitch should be correct.

Round 3

*sc 2 into next st, sc into next st* rep *.* 5 more times (18 sc)

Round 4

*sc 2 into next st, sc into next 2 sts* rep *.* 5 more  times (24 sc)

Round 5

*sc 2 into next st, sc into next 3 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (30 sc)

Round 6

*sc 2 into next st, sc into next 4 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (36 sc)

Round 7

*sc 2 into next st, sc into next 5 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (42 sc)

Hair

Using colour (D) cut 6 pieces of yarn app 12cm long each, lie them next to each other.  Take all 6 strands at once and tie a tight knot in the middle of all the strands.   Then place the yarn with the knot under the top of the head (under your work) and pull the threads through (I use a small size crochet hook), the knot remains under the crochet, and the strands pull through.  The knot stops the threads from pulling loose, and makes the hair quite secure, especially once the head has been stuffed – how cute is the little tuft of hair!

 
   
 

HEAD Cont./…

Round 8

*sc 2 into next st, sc into next 6 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (48 sc)

Round 9

*sc 2 into next st, sc into next 7 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (54 sc)

Round 10

sc into next 54 sts (54 sc)

Round 11-24

repeat round 10 (54 sc)

Helpful hint: insert the safety eyes between row 20 and 21, about 10 sts apart.  If you prefer to embroider your eyes, you can do this when the head is finished and stuffed and remember to place the eyes in the “front” of your work (so the slightly visible line of increase is at the “back”).

Round 25

inv sc2tog, sc into next 7 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (48 sc)

Round 26

inv sc2tog, sc into next 6 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (42 sc)

Round 27

inv sc2tog, sc into next 5 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (36 sc)

Helpful hint: you can stuff the head now, and then just add more in before you close off after the last round, the head should be firm, but not hard, think “squishy”

Round 28

inv sc2tog, sc into next 4 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (30 sc)

Round 29

inv sc2tog, sc into next 3 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (24 sc)

Round 30

inv sc2tog, sc into next 2 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (18 sc)

Round 31

inv sc2tog, sc into next st* rep *.* 5 more times (12 sc)

Round 32

*inv sc2tog*, rep *.* 5 more times (6 sc) cut yarn, ss into each sc and pull tight, cut yarn, leaving a tail  about 20 cm long to use to attach the head to the body later.

NOSE

Worked in the round.

Helpful hint: move the stitch marker and place in the last stitch of each row and this will help keep your stitch count correct and help with row counting, and because we are working quite tightly in the round, I weave my beginning tail in whilst working round 2.
