Gauge 3 & 1/2 stitches & 3 & 1/2 rows per inch

G Hook

At least 3 colors worsted weight yarn for doll, gown  and blanket, plus yarn for hair and face.

Round 12: Single crochet in back loop around. (12 stitches)

Stuff lightly leaving room to push the finger tube up into the head.

This part forms the tube for your finger to work the puppets head:

Round 13: Working in both loops again; single crochet around. (12 stitches)

Round 14: *Single crochet 2 stitches together, single crochet in next 4 stitches

stitches. Repeat from * once. (10 stitches)

Rounds 15 - 17: Single crochet around. (10 stitches)

Round 18: Single crochet 2 together around. (5 stitches)

Pull yarn through last stitch and cut, leaving the end long enough to pull the last

five stitches together.

After pulling the last 5 stitches together, pull tube into head by threading the

needle with the yam on it up into the head.  Secure the end.

-Gown ( worked in rows)-

Find center 5 stitches under features on head. The dolly's head will be upside down

and you will work the first row in the free loops of round 12 of the head.

Join gown color with a slip stitch in the first stitch of the five,.

Row 1: 2 single crochet in same stitch as join and each stitch across,

chain 1 and turn. (10 stitches)

Row 2: Single crochet in same stitch as join, 2 single crochet in next 8 stitches,

1 single crochet in last stitch, chain 1 and turn. (18 stitches)

Row 3-13: Single crochet in each stitch across, chain 1 and turn. (18 stitches)

Rows 14: Single crochet in each stitch across,  pull yarn through last stitch

and cut, leaving the end long enough to tuck in .

Sew arms to top of gown with first stitch sewn to row 3. 

Leave back  5  stitches on arm free.

Sew legs to bottom of gown in front loop.  They should meet in the center of the

gown.  The legs are sewn shut.

-Blanket----Worked in rounds-

Round 1: Beginning at bottom right side of gown join blanket color.  Single crochet

in same stitch  and in each stitch across bottom, including the free

part of the stitches that the legs are sewn to.  3 single crochet in corner, continue

up side and across free loops on the arm,

across shoulder and back free loops on back of head, across other shoulder, free

stitches on the other arm. Continue with single crochet down

the other side, back to beginning, ending with 2 single crochet in same stitch as

join.  I ended up with 63 stitches, but this is not important.  the blanket will

ruffle and an exact stitch count won't be necessary.  The blanket will ruffle.

Round 2: Chain 2, double crochet in same stitch,  double crochet in each stitch

working three double crochet in middle stitch of corner and in the middle stitch

of the arms,  around, back to the beginning.  Work 2 double crochet in same stitch as

beginning chain 2, join with slip stitch in 1st double crochet. 

(skipping the chain 2)

Round 3: Chain 4, double crochet in next stitch, *chain 1, double crochet in next

stitch, repeat from * around. Join with slip stitch in chain 4 space.

Round 4 - 7: Chain 4, double crochet in next chain 1 space, *chain 1, double crochet

in next chain 1 space, repeat from * around to beginning chain 4,

join with slip stitch in chain 4 space.

Round 8:  Chain 3, slip stitch in next space around. Join with slip stitch in

beggining slip stitch  Cut yarn and hide ends.  Done!

I too am totally upset that they are taking the servers down to fix things. Why can't they just let things stay broken? I don't care if I can't move due to lag or if quests are bugged. If I leave my room my mom may make me get a job.
