Note: Stuffie is worked from the bottom up with the top seamed.

To replicate colors like the one shown:
  • Rounds 1-4: Raspberry
  • Round 5: Butterscotch
  • Round 6: Glacier
  • Round 7: Pumpkin
  • Round 8: Blossom
  • Round 9: Raspberry
  • Round 10: Butterscotch
  • Rounds 11-15 Glacier
  • Face embroidered with Raspberry
Instructions:

Ch 4, then join in the ch furthest from the hook to create a ring.

Round 1: Ch 3, then work 11 dc in to the center of the ring. Join with a slip stitch to close round.

Round 2: Ch 3, then work a dc into the first st. *2 dc into the next st. Repeat from * around. Join with a slip stitch to close round.

Round 3: Ch 3, *work a dc in the first st, then 2 dc into the next st. Repeat from * around. Join with a slip stitch to close round.

Round 4: Ch 3, then work a bpdc in each st around. Join with a slip stitch to close round.

Rounds 5-15: (see above for the colors I used for each round): Ch 2, then work a hdc into each stitch around. Join with a slip stitch to close round.


Assembly & Finishing:
  • Embroider face with coordinating yarn. I used Raspberry from one of the stripes on the bottom part. For eyes, two half circles, nose is a simple triangle, and mouth was two smaller half circles.
  • Whip stitch top of opening with a matching piece of yarn, leaving a small opening for stuffing.
  • Stuff so that it is full but not too much. Too little and it will be droopy, over filled and it will stretch your stitches.
  • Finish seaming the top and fasten off. Weave in ends.
  • Using a matching piece of yarn, sew and cinch the ears. To do this, sew a matching piece of yarn along where the base of the ear will be. Secure with a knot so it holds it shape, then weave in ends.
