Abbreviations:


mr, sc n = magic ring - crochet n single crochet stitches into the adjustable loop

Cs = chain stitch (UK=chain)

sl st = slip stitch (UK=slip stitch)

sc = single crochet stitch (UK=double crochet)

inc = increase = 2 sc in one st

dec = decrease= two sc together

(sc 4, inc) x n = repeat the pattern between parentheses n times

st/sts = stitch/stitch

[n] = the number of stitches in the round

You will need:


- 2.5 mm crochet hook;

- yarn: Yarnart Jeans;

- one pair of 6 mm safety eyes (they can be substituted with half beads or yarn);

- scissors, stitch marker or scrap piece of yarn;

- black and pink embroidery thread, needle ;

- soft stuffing;

- yarn needle.

You can use the same pattern to make larger or smaller toys by using finer or bulkier yarn. Also you can use a different color yarn. Pick a crochet hook at least a size smaller than suggested on yarn label and crochet tightly enough to achieve a tight gauge that will not allow the stuffing to show through the fabric.

TAIL


Make 17 chain stitches. Cut off the yarn and pull it through the loop to secure it.

Cut off the end of the yarn on one side, and leave on the other side to sew the tail to the body.

Round 3: (sc 1+ inc 6) x 6= [18]
Round 4: (sc 2 + inc 6) x 6= [24]
Round 5-12(8 rounds): sc in each stitch around = [24 ]
Round 13: dec 3 + sc 18 (sc in each st around)= [21]
Round 14: Sc in each stitch around = [21]
