st = stitch
sc = single crochet
BLO = back loops only
2tog = 2 stitches together
ch1 = chain one 
dc  = double crochet
F/O = finish off

Special notes: I worked in continuous rounds with a 3.75mm hook and worsted weight yarn. Have any questions or if you come across a mistake in the pattern please leave a message in the comment section below.

BODY:

1) magic circle with 6st (6)
2) 2sc in each st (12)
3) 1sc in next st, 2sc in next st (18)
4) 1sc in next 2st, 2sc in next st (24)
5) 1sc in next 3st, 2sc in next st (30)
6-7) 1sc in the BLO for 2 rows (30)
8-29) 1sc in each st for 22 rows.
30) 1sc in next 3st then 2tog (24)
31) 1sc in each st 
32) 1sc in next 2st, then 2tog (18)
33) 1sc in each st  

34+)  *Stuff as you go 1sc then 2tog and eventually the doll will start to form a point so stop when it gets too pointy and close up the remainder of the gap with your crochet needle. You will be attaching hair at the very top so you decide how you want the top of this part to look. 

What I did to make the hair was cut a handful of yellow yarn and sew it right on to the top of the head with a strand of yellow yarn. I then created a bow with a pipe cleaner and I hot glued this to the hair itself to hold it in place. Then I just tied off the hair on each side in 3 parts.

**For the eyes and so on please see Larry The Cucumber on how to attach these. Just fast forward to 7:19 in this video click here

EYES:

1) magic circle with 6st (6)
2) 2sc in each st,   (12)
3) 1sc in next 4st, 3sc in next 3st, 1sc in next 5st (18)
4) 1sc in each st 
    sl st to next st and finish off

EYELIDS:

1) ch 10
2) starting with 2nd ch from hook, 1sc in next 2st, dc in next 7st, finish off
** the flat edges should be facing/touching each other when sewn over eye
Chain a length to outline bottom part of eye and sew on

NOSE:

1) magic circle with 4st (4)
2) 2sc in each st (8)
3-4) 1sc in each st for 2 rows 
finish off, stuff and weave tail in and out along the edge then pull the hole closed. Sew into place

pupils and mouth are cut from felt and hot glued into place. That's it and you're done!
