Special Stitches:
Adjustable-ring method—Wrap yarn into a ring, ensuring that the tail falls behind the working yarn. Grip ring and tail firmly between middle finger and thumb. Insert hook through center of ring, yarn over (with working yarn) and draw up a loop. Work stitches of first round in the ring. After the first round of stitches is worked, pull gently, but firmly, on tail to tighten ring.

Notes:
Doll is worked in the round in unjoined spirals. Use a locking stitch marker if necessary to mark the beginning of each round. When you complete a round, move the marker to the loop on your hook and continue crocheting.

Finishing
For the nose, thread a yarn needle with a long strand of yarn A. Come up between Rnds 10 and 11 of the Head and make several horizontal loose stitches about 2 sc stitches wide. Refer to photo. Keeping these stitches loose will give the nose dimension. Knot the yarn and weave back inside the Head.

Use an embroidery needle and black embroidery floss to make a mouth. Come up at one side, make a loose straight stitch across, back down on the other side, then come up at the middle of the smile, tacking down the loose straight stitch in a smile shape. Add a small stitch of red embroidery floss just underneath the black. Refer to photo.

Use a yarn needle and a short length of black yarn to make eyebrows. One vertical stitch and one longer horizontal stitch should be connected for each eyebrow.

With an embroidery needle and black embroidery floss, sew each black shanked button to the each side of the neck as shown.

Apply a small amount of pink blush to each cheek with your fingertip.

BOO!
