PATTERN – MELLY TEDDY RAGDOLL LUNA THE WITCH & ECLIPSE THE BLACK CAT

PART 1

HEAD

Firmly stuffed (not overstuffed) and worked in the round, using colour (A) yarn make a mc.

Helpful hint: we are starting from the top of the head, and will close under the chin – the reason for this is that the bottom closing will be covered when we add the body to the head, and the head is not a ball – it starts with gentle gradient decrease, then we make the face section, then we increase the stitch count from 60 to 66 (this makes the cheeks, and then we reduce the stitches quickly in Round 22, and then finish the bottom of the head with another gentle gradient decrease – think Lego man when making the face.

Round 1

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

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.

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).

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 4 sts* rep *.* 9 more times (54 sc).

Round 27

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

Helpful hint: insert the safety eyes between row 18 and 19, about 12 sts apart.  If you prefer to embroider your eyes, you can do this when the head is finished.

Round 28

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

Round 29

*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.

Round 30

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

Round 31
