All knitting goes in a spiral, at the end of the row, in brackets, the total number of loops in the row is indicated. If you are afriad of losing the loops and rows, use a marker (you do not need to follow it).



We begin to knit from the legs. We knit them 2 pieces. We do not cut the thread at the second leg, we will begin to knit the body from it.
Rnd 1. In red. 5sc in MR (5)
Rnd 2. 5sc (5)

Change to a thread of the main color.
Rnd 3-4. 5sc (5)
Finished the first leg. The thread was cut and tucked in.
Tied the second leg, we begin to knit the body. Remember, we do not cut the thread we continue.
Rnd 5. On the second leg, knit 5sc, 2ch, 5sc on the first leg, 2sc along a chain of 2 ch (14)
Rnd 6-9. 14sc (14)

Rnd 10. Make reductions on the sides and in the front (we make out the belly). The sum should come out 11sc.

Take your head horizontally facing you. Approximately on the 8th row on the side of the head (from the crown), grab the ch, knit the hdc into this loop of the head. Fasten the thread, stretch it to the opposite side, where the second ear will be, and knit 1 ch, 1 hdc. Fasten and cut the thread.


For the collar, 1 take 2 threads of a mouline and a 0,75 mm hook.
Rnd 1. 20 hdc in MR. But! do not tighten the ring too much, it should be wom around the neck. If 20 hdc is not enough, then dial a little thread.
Put on the collar, sew on the head.

Rnd 9. 2sc, inc, (4sc, inc) x 5, 2sc (36)
Cut and fasten the thread.


Sew/ glue buttons/ half-beads on the body. I made my hair simple. CUt the acrylic yarn into pieces 5cm long. Pass them in two strands along the lopps of the head (in a circle), leaving an empty space on the crown (it will be like a bold spot).

Trim the length of your hair. Roll the hair roots to the head, while distributing the strands. Sew the eyes with black threads in the 8th row from the crown. The distance between the eyes should be 4 st. Make the noseout of polymer clay. Blind a ball with a diameter less than 8,5cm. Since I do not know how to bake polymer clay, I cook it.

Cook for 10-15 minutes. Glue the nose between the eyes with super glue. Sew the mouth with red thread, making it look like a smile. To keep it better, take a little glue and secure your mouth with it. Paint the makeup with acrylic paints.

Draw the triangles above the eyes with red paints, draw the lines under the eyes with white. Go over the eyes in black so that the threads (with which the eyes were embroidered) do not stand out so much. Also, with white paints, put two dots in front of the eyes, this will give the eyes shine. Sew the hat to your head, or you can glue it on.
