Rnd 9: Make 6 increases – crochet sc in the place where you had increase in the previous round and make 1 increase in it. And so on – in each increase of the previous round make an increase (you get 1 sc between them) and finish the round with sc. Where you make increases, you form the place for eyes and a forehead, that’s why the beginning of the round should be at the bottom of the head where the neck is.

Flower on the head

To make the flower puffier, you can make 3 dc increases in each st in the 3 Rnd. Make the necessary amount of chains for the lace.

Assembly
Sew the head. Sew legs and arms so that they can move. Use the 20-30 cm ribbon for the skirt. Sew it to the rubber lace and sew to the belly where decreases start. You can sew the flower to the head with a thin thread in the inner loop not to lose it. Shape the muzzle – sew eyes, embroider nose and eyebrows.

  1. Look, please:
    Rnd 8: sc in the next 12 st, inc, sc in the next 12 st [36].

    If you follow the 8th round, you will not get 36 points. Help me?
    Thanks.

  2. Hallo, bedankt voor het mooie patroontje van Teddy de balletdanser. Maar bij de uitleg van het hoofd begrijp ik de uitleg niet van rij 9, 10 en 11. Bij de natelling klopt het dan ook niet, dan kom ik niet meer aan het juiste aantal steken.
    Kun u mij verder helpen aub.

    Bedankt op voorhand en vriendelijke groetjes,
    Christin
