A very old doll, but one I love.







I got a request to finish this, and so I did!  Wink This pattern is NOT tested, so please send me any mistakes you find! (Also I'd love to see a picture of your finished project!)

Materials:

-         Red Heart Super Saver yarn
a)      Dark Sage
b)      Light Sage
c)      White
-         Caron Perfect Match yarn
a)      Cream
b)       Brown (name?)
c)      Sunflower
-         A small bit of white felt
-         Two black buttons
-         Tiny bit of black embroidery thread and a needle
-         Stuffing
-         Some sort of beads/pebbles/something heavy to weigh down the feet with (I used plastic pony beads I had sitting around)
 
Are you ready? Lets get started!!

Hands
            -ch 2 with cream
Rnd 1) Sc 6 in 2nd chain from hook
2) 2 sc in each around (12)
3) (2 sc in next, sc 3) around (16)
4) (2 sc in next, sc 2) around, sc in last (21)
5-8 ) sc around

11-13) sc around
o       BEFORE you finish the head, MAKE THE TUNIC. Link has to be sewn into it, and its easier if you can sew the straps to the back and then put it over his head. Also things like ears and eyes are easier to sew on while the head still has an opening.

14) (sc dec, sc) around (18)
15) (sc dec, sc) around (12)

The front spikes of the hair are two small triangles (sewn together) on top of two bigger triangles (also sew together). The ch 1 does NOT count as a stitch (I always get holes when I do that, and I was trying to avoid them here).

-Now! Sew this combines mess onto the other straight long edge of your top oval, and then sew the side spikes RIGHT next to this triangle mess on both sides. There should be a small gap between the hanging sides and the back that sticks down (and this is where the ears should be sewn on!).
-Laugh at how silly this looks.  Seriously. It looks like an Elvis Wig Monster.
-Sew this onto the head as best you can, then sew on the ears, hat, etc...

I love this!  I added you on Flickr, and I just love all the projects you've done! 

Awesome that you're into Cosplay, too!  Does that mean you make your own costumes, and sew?

Erm, well, I've always WANTED to learn how to sew... so I kind of pretend that I can, haha! I got the pattern for those Shy Guy robes off of some "Science of the Light Occult" website... which was scary, but free. I can't read sewing patterns to save my life, so I just kind of cut out the pieces I need and jumble them together somehow.
