I have found this picture on pinterest and have no claim on the design but I am trying to make Pooh from just eyeballing him as there is no pattern. My question is: how in the world do I get his nose to stick out like this? I am not referring to the embroidered part but the part that I am assuming has some type of increase that I have to do in the round but am not sure and don't want to try it and keep ripping it back. If anyone has any suggestions or even videos on how to do this I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much in advance.

I haven't done something with this large of an increase, but i would imagine that you need to increase on the side where the nose is, and then either keep crocheting around without increasing, or do a decrease or two depending on the shape of the head. On a very small scale, I did something similar when I made a doll


If you look at her shoes (I know they're tiny) - the front of them sticks out, and I had to increase in the front while also decreasing in the back.

I hope this helps a little!!

Looks like youd have to do some pretty drastic increasing in the area where the nose is, and then the embroidery for the nose will accentuate it!  Such a cute amigurumi- Pooh is one of my favorites!
