I made this for teddybearbones in the Voodoo/Hoodoo/Creepy Cute Doll swap, and she's received, so I feel safe posting this.

teddybearbones likes the Powerpuff Girls, and so do I. So I made her her own Hoodoo PPG. For an idea of scale, you can look at this other photo of her next to my mobile.

As with all my other crochet/amigurumi, Bliss (oh that's her name, by the way) was made with no pattern (but I will try to remember if anyone wants to know it), I just winged it as I went along. I'm proudest of her eyes, really.

Questions, comments?

Okay, this is going to be lameass.

Do you know how to crochet a ball? I did that (increasing till the round where I do 2 sc in one sc, then 1 sc in next 4 scs), then 1 sc in each sc for 5 rounds, then started decreasing (sc 2 sts tog) until I completed to the round where I sc 2 sts tog then 2 scs in each sc. Then I did 2 sc in one sc for 1 round, then rounds of 1 sc in each sc until I thought the body was just long enough, then a round of sc 2 sts tog, 1 sc in each sc, then a round of sc 2 sts tog until it closed.

Legs and arms are simple, just start crocheting your circle (ch 2, 4 scs in 2nd ch from hook, then 1 round of 2 scs in each sc) then 1 sc in each sc until you think it's long enough, then finish off.

The dress I did in a square (rectangle?) then stitched it together.

The eyes were the tough part. Here's what I wrote down:

Round 1: with white, ch 2. 6 dcs in 2nd ch from hook. join to first dc (and change colour to black)
Round 2: with black (make sure you do 2 stitches in each stitch), 4 sc, 1 hdc, 6dc, 1 hdc
Round 3: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next st) x 2. 2 hdc in next st. (1 dc in next st, 2 dc in next st) x 3. 1 hdc, sl st to FO.
Round 4: in 12th st, pull up a loop. In next st, 1 sc and 1 hdc. 1 dc each in next 2 sts. In next st, 1 dc and 1 hdc. 1 hdc each in next 2 sts. 2 sc in next st. Sl st to FO.

(Reverse the order in round 3 then round 4 to get the other eye.)

Er, hope that helps.

My boyfriend is recently obsessed with South Park, so I'm going to borrow this idea and make some, maybe all of the characters for him. Thanks for the pattern!
