INC – Make two Single Crochet in Same Stitch
DEC – Single Crochet two stitches together
BLO – Back Loops Only

Special Stitches
Puff Stitch – (Insert hook, pull up a loop) repeat 3 times. 5 loops on hook. Yarn over and pull through all loops. Push the stitch out to make a bump on the right side of the fabric.

Note: Almost the entire project is worked in the round. Use a stitch marker or a scrap piece of yarn to mark the beginning of each row. Then you don’t have to count every row. Do not join unless instructed to.

Parentheses indicate a repeat. Repeat the stitches in the parentheses for the number of times indicated.

The bracketed number [] is the number of stitches at the end of each row.

I spread my increases out so there isn’t a seam on the finished piece. If you do not like this method, you can do regular increases.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at drunkenauntwendy@gmail.com.

HEAD
Note: Head is initially worked in an oval. The increases are worked only on the sides to maintain the shape.
