Stitches and abbreviations used:
(I am from England but use US crochet terms)
  • MC - Magic circle/ring (sc unless otherwise specified)

Other things to note....
  • This is worked in continuous rounds. It is helpful to use a stitch marker to keep track

Constructions – Make two of each and sew or crochet them back to back with a small amount of soft toy filling in between 


Hanging loop – when sewing one of the pieces onto the body, move the yarn to the head and loop round. Hold this loop in place whilst you carry on sewing the rest of the piece on with that strand of yarn. This secures the loop in place.
