Hi there, I want to start off by saying how much I appreciate your support & love having you tag me in your projects! This pattern is for the ‘ugly dolls’ movie character “OX” The pattern works up each piece separately, which are then sewn together in finishing (scroll to the bottom to see the video). It has been thoroughly tested & can be completed in an afternoon!

 Disclaimer:

This pattern is not intended for sales purposes, or resale. I recommend you do not sell trade marked items, but rather gift them to your family (This project series is a BIG ask from my daughter – keeping mommy on her toes). I wouldn’t want you getting in trouble because you can make something, it doesn’t mean that you should.  I hope you appreciate this gift for your littles & share with your friends!

Final measurements are roughly 4.5” tall by 3” wide (individual hand makes vary)

For this project you will need:

1.    3.25mm Crochet Hook

2.    Worsted weight Yarn: I used Bernat Premium Hot Pink

3.    Sewing & darning (yarn) needles

4.    Sewing thread in, white & black

5.    Scissors

6.    White felt in small amounts.

7.    Cotton Embroidery Floss in Black & Blue

Terms:

Ch = chain stitches

SC = single crochet.

SCINC = single crochet increase (2 sts in one space.)

HDC = Half Double Crochet

BLO = back loop only

BS = Ball Stitch (consists of 6 loops pulled up on the hook * entering the loop 3x & is SLST closed all at once creating a raised ball stitch through the SC base)

sts = stitches

SKST = Skip Stitch

Inv.dec = Invisible decrease (insert hook into the FLO of the stitch, then insert again into the next stitch. SC there pulling through all 3 loops on hook)

FO = Fasten off, pull a SLST through to close off the piece/ detail.

Special Instructions:

This pattern is worked in Rows, there will be a seam in each piece (this means that each Row is finished by slip stitching the working loop to the first ch stitch of each Row - NOT continuous Rounds). This pattern is also worked in small pieces and then sewn together. The head and body are the base structures for the ears & legs later to be sewn on.  Each piece should be WELL PINNED before any attempt to sew this together.  Make sure that each piece is exactly where you want it before sewing it into place. 

The eyes are made of felt with a small embroidered circle in the middle and the mouth is made from a small piece of black yarn sewn in place. Facial details can be found on Youtube.

The Wings, feet and ears are a multiple of the same pattern.
