The latest edition to the Melly Teddy Ragdoll Family is the Snowman Family Part 6, starring little Chilly – who is just too adorable with his ear warmers and scarf.  Although I live in Durbanville (which is a small town in Cape Town, South Africa), I do love snow and am definitely more a winter girl – nothing nicer than snuggling up in front of a fire with my family and playing card games and chatting, laughing and bonding.  Sadly, I have to pretend it is snowing outside, although it does rain heavily in winter and gets a bit chilly, and I might need to put on a cardigan LOL.  This pattern is for any snowman/winter/roasted marshmallow loving person.  

The pattern includes the instructions to make dad, mom and little Chilly.

The pattern will be released in 6 parts over 2 weeks and you can get each part separately FOR FREE with the Crochet Along

PATTERN – SNOWMAN FAMILY PART 6

PART 6 – BRINGING YOUR MELLY TEDDY RAGDOLL TO LIFE

You have made all the different body parts and motifs, now to bring your Melly Teddy to life.

You do not need to follow these instructions exactly, this is just the way I like to put mine together, so is a suggestion only – the idea is to have FUN with the design, use your imagination and make yours unique.

ATTACHING THE TOP AND BOTTOM OF THE BODY

We used single crochet to stitch the two pieces (of the same size) together.  Lay them flat and then insert the top (smaller circle) into the opening of the bottom (larger circle), then carefully slip stitch the two pieces together.

ATTACHING THE ARMS

Helpful hint: before you attach the arms etc to the body, lay the body flat and make sure the two circles are lying nicely together with no bulges.

I slip stitch the arms to the top of the body over 7-8 stitches approximately in the middle of each side, remember to have the seam from your arm “underneath” the arm so that it is hidden (for dad and mom).  To make the join firm, I slip stitch along both sides of the arm (back and front), using the loop from the single crochet round, cut yarn, and weave in ends.  For Chilly you can do the same except there is no seam because we used half double crochet stitches.  I use brown yarn to attach the Chilly’s arm, carefully so as not to be too obvious against the white of his body.

ATTACHING THE FEET

Lay the body flat and place the feet approximately 10 stitches apart and slip stitch them to the body, the same way you did the arms, joining the front and the back to make the connection firmer, cut yarn, and weave in ends.

 

ATTACHING THE NOSE, ADDING THE MOUTH/EYELASHES/EYEBROWS

I use disappearing ink marker to mark where I want the nose, mouth, (eyes if you are embroidering eyes), eyebrows for dad and Chilly and eyelashes for mom.  Then I used black yarn to embroider the mouth, eyebrows and eyelashes.  Lightly stuff the nose and then slip stitch the nose to the head using the long tail, cut yarn and weave in ends.

ATTACHING THE CLOTHING/ADDING MOTIFS

DAD

Slip stitch the beanie onto his head, cut yarn and weave in ends.  Add three buttons to his body, I placed two on the top of the body and one on the large part of his body, I added two snowflakes, but you can add as many as you like.  Attach the heart to the back of his body, anywhere you like.  We will add the scarf once the head is attached to the body.

MOM

Slip stitch the Christmas hat onto her head, cut yarn and weave in ends.  Slip stitch the apron onto her body, tie the ties behind her back and slip stitch the ties so that they do not come undone.  You can add the mistletoe motifs to her apron and make a few French knots to finish it off.  Add two buttons to her body, I placed two on the top of the body above her apron.  Attach the heart to the back of his body, anywhere you like.

CHILLY

Lightly stuff each earmuff, then attach to either side of the head, slip stitch them onto the head, then slip stitch the band between the two earmuffs, on top of his head.  Add two buttons to the top of his body.  We will add the scarf once the head is attached to the body.

ATTACHING THE HEAD

I like to add the head last, because this is the most important join, and this is the last thing you do before your Melly Teddy Ragdoll comes to life, this is my favourite part.  I use a disappearing ink marker to mark where I want my head to be placed, you can use stitch markers or pins, to help you.  Slip stitch the neck opening, like you did the arms and the feet, then lie your body flat, and make sure that the middle of the head is exactly joined to the middle of the body, otherwise it will look funny, and lie skew.  Then slip stitch the body to the head, on both sides, cut yarn and weave in.

Place the scarf on dad and Chilly, and slip stitch into place, so that the scarves do not come loose.
