Abbreviations

lp st: loop stitch
sc: single crochet
sc2tog: single crochet 2 stitches together
st(s): stitch(es)

Materials
Size H crochet hook
tapestry needle
two 12mm black animal eyes
a few handfuls of stuffing

Yarn
Less than 220 yards (1 skein) is required of each color. For the yarn, I use 100% wool worsted
weight (Ella Rae Classic the brand used in the sample). However, any worsted weight yarn can
be substituted.
MC- Black (Plymouth Galway Worsted color # 154)
SC- White (Ella Rae Classic color #01)
AC1- Yellow (Ella Rae Classic color #44)
AC2- Red (Ella Rae Classic color #31)
AC3- Blue (Ella Rae Classic color #83)

Directions

Gauge
This pattern doesn’t specify a gauge. It’s a stuffed animal, and you don’t need to be too picky about exact sizing. The most important thing is that you use a hook size that creates a nice looking fabric for your yarn. If you use the recommended hook size, and your fabric looks very loose (so that stuffing would show through), then you will want to use a smaller hook. Other than that, no measuring required!

The Loop Stitch
This pattern calls for the loop stitch (lp st). Here’s how to do it: Put the index finger of your left hand (your non-hook-holding hand) behind your work. Insert the hook into the next stitch, as you would for single crochet. Wrap the yarn around the hook from front to back (a). To make the loop, loop the yarn over your index finger, ending with the yarn on the hook, then pull both yarns through the first loop (b). Wrap the yarn over the hook, and pull through all three loops on the hook (c). This creates a loop on the back of the piece (d).

Stitch into the back
All stitches in the round are into the back loop, unless otherwise directed. Look at picture (a), and see how the arrow points to the back loop? You will stitch into this loop, as pictured in (b). Stitching into the back loop creates ridges on the right side of the piece. For rows, you will stitch into the front loop, unless otherwise directed. You can stitch into both loops if you desire, but this will change the look of the final product.

Starting out: the sloppy slip knot
Most pieces in this pattern (as they are based on circles) begin with stitching six times into one loop. We recommend the ’slopply slip knot’ to avoid creating a hole in the center (a). To do this, twist the yarn around the hook to begin, and crochet as directed. Once you have completed your first round, pull on the tail, while holding the loop you have created (b). The
loop will end up tighter, as pictured in (c).

Color Changes
This pattern calls for switching from one color to another, but there is a trick to doing it so the change in color is very clean. Stitch up to 2 stiches before you are supposed to change colors (we are demonstrating here with the single crochet). In the next stitch (the last one of your current color), do not pull the final loop through, leaving as pictured in (a). Instead, loop the
new color around your needle (b), and pull the loop through (c). Now, just stitch as normal. This technique leaves you with a clean color change, as shown in (d).

Attaching Parts Together
In this pattern, you will be instructed to attach two pieces together, usually attaching a smaller part (such as a leg) onto a larger part (like a body). The small part will have a row of stitches at the opening, and a long tail. Thread a tapestry needle with the long tail. Put the small part where it should go along the body, and pick up a stitch on the body. Keep going (one stich on small part, one stitch on the body), until you have fully attached the part.
When you are done, tie a knot to fasten off. Use the tapestry needle to pull the knot inside, so you don’t have any loose ends sticking out.

Fasten off with long tail
What does this mean? It just means that when you are ending a piece, to leave a lot (about 6-9 inches) of extra yarn, as pictured. This will be used to attach this piece to another piece. To attach your piece to another, just thread the long tail through a tapestry needle, and stitch to the second piece.
