Secure active yarn loop onto a stitch marker and attach the eyes between R11 and
R12, embroider the eye details, stuff and attach the nose even with the little black lines
under the eyes, and embroider the mouth. Then continue with torso section. Do not cut
the yarn, the head and torso sections are worked continuously.

Eye Embroidery Details
Point A and C of the eyebrows are at the row that is even with the top of the eyes.
The little black lines around the eyes are just one little stitch over 2 crochets. To create
the blue above the eyes use the diagram below and thread a 30-inch length of peacock
yarn and thread it onto your yarn needle. From the inside of the head, bring your
needle out at point A (be sure to leave a short tail hanging on the inside of the head
which will be used to tie off later).

Insert at point B, bring it out at point C. Insert at point A, out at point B. Insert at point
C, out at point D (at this point make sure that your active yarn is below the line between
point A and C as this will give this line a slight curve). Insert at point B, out at point A.
Insert at point B, out at point E (be sure to go under and around the curved line). Insert
at B, out at E again.

Insert at point B, out at point D. Insert at point B, out at point F (be sure to go under and
around the curved line). Insert at B, out at F again. Insert at point B, out at point C.
Insert at point B, then gently tie off to starting tail and cut any excess yarn. Repeat
process over second eye.

 

 

Mouth Embroidery Details
Mouth position is about 1 or 2 rows below the nose.
Cut a 15-inch length of black yarn and thread it onto your yarn needle. From the inside
of the head and making sure to leave a little tail inside the head which will be used to tie
off later, make 3 horizontal sts about 1.5 inches long. When making these 3 sts, be
sure to use the same point on each side of the mouth for all 3 lines.

Thread a 15-inch length of cherry red yarn onto your yarn needle. From the inside of
the head and making sure to leave a little tail inside the head which will be used to tie
off later, make 3 horizontal sts about 1.75 inches long. When making these 2 sts, be
sure to have one line lay above the black lines and one line lay below the black lines
and use the same point on each side of the mouth for both lines.

Thread a 20-inch length of white embroidery floss onto your sewing needle. From the
inside of the head and making sure to leave a little tail inside the head which will be
used to tie off later, make 5 vertical sts around the top black yarn to create the top teeth
and 4 vertical sts around the bottom black yarn to create the bottom teeth. To finish,
gently tie all yarns inside the head and cut off any excess.

arm.

 


Thread one of the tails onto your yarn needle and sew a couple of running sts in the top
of the arm, then connect the arm to the top of the opposite side of the jumpsuit. Next,
whipstitch around the sleeve area of the jumpsuit and the carry threads from the color
changes on the sleeve. Pull to tighten as you go. Securely weave in the end and cut
off any excess length. Repeat process on other sleeve.
