Secure active yarn loop onto a stitch marker and attach the eyes on the front of the head at R13 with 6sc between the button edges. The front of the head is the side opposite from the st marker. This is important because there will be a color change in the next section which will look neater if it is on the back of the doll. Then continue with shirt section below. Do not cut the yarn, the head and shirt sections are worked continuously.

Coat Assembly
1. Sew the coat closed using the 10-inch tail from the starting chain. The closure should be about 9 sts tall. Fold the top left corner down to form a lapel. Continue with this same tail and weave it through the coat to the left and secure the corner of the lapel down. Weave in end, cut off excess yarn.

2. Fold the right lapel down and using the 40-inch tail secure it in place with a couple of sts. Do not cut yarn yet as you will use this long thread to sew the coat to the shirt.

3. Place the shirt in the coat and continue with a running st around the top of the coat and shirt together about 2 crochets down to secure the shirt to the coat. Once you’ve made a running st all around, make a few sts down and make another running st around the bottom about 4 crochets up. Weave in end and cut off any excess length.

Mask
In this section we will be working from both ends of the skein which will help minimize the amount of ends that are sewn in. If for some reason you are unable to work from both ends then you can always fasten off at the end of row 10, then join with a new yarn at row R19 where it says to continue with the active loop.

Secure active loop on a stitch marker and continue working rows 11-19 from the other end of the skein. If you prefer not to work from both ends of the skein, then cut yarn here, fasten off, weave in end.

R11. Join new white yarn in the 5th st from the left edge of R7 (indicated by placement of crochet hook in the photo below), ch1 and place 1sc into that same st, 1sc in each of the next 7 sts (8)

Do not cut yarn, we will now create a border around the mask.

Ch1 and sc around the left side of the mask, then the bottom of the mask, then the right side of the mask. Once you get all the way around to the first st in R25, you will make a R26, which will serve as the top border of the mask.

R26. 1sc in each of the first 2 sts, sc2tog, 1sc in each of the next 5 sts, sc2tog, 1sc in each of the last 2 sts (11)

Mask Assembly
1. Using a marking tool (I used a permanent marker), make several dots on the mask to mark where you will paint the black circles. Use photo below as a guide.

2. Dip eraser end of the pencil into the black fabric paint and paint the marked dots by “stamping” with the painted eraser (see photo below). Let the paint dry.

3. Embroider the red triangle between the eyes. Cut about a 30-inch length of red yarn and thread it onto your yarn needle. Insert needle from the back of the mask coming out at point A (see diagram below). Be sure to leave a short tail hanging out the back of the mask which will be used to tie off later

Make additional embroidery stitches as needed for coverage. Depending on the weight of the yarn used you may need more stitches or less stitches. Once you are happy with the look, tie off both tails on the back of the mask and cut excess lengths.

4. Using the white tail on the top of the mask, sew the strap end to the top middle of the mask. Weave in end and cut excess length.

5. Using the black tails on the mask straps, sew the strap sides to the side of the mask even with the eye holes. I like to sew into the back bump of the white single crochet border because it hides the black stitching. Weave in ends and cut excess lengths.

Machete
Make an adjustable ring with the black yarn, be sure to leave about a 10-inch tail hanging on the inside of the piece which will be used for tying later.

R1. 6sc in the ring, pull to tighten (6)
R2. 2sc in each st around (12)
R3-6. 1sc in each st around (12) Change color to pewter, cut black yarn leaving about a 15-inch tail and continue
R7-8. 1sc in each st around (12) Place active loop on stitch marker and feed both the 10-inch and 15-inch tail through the side of the handle. See picture below. These will be used later to secure the machete to the dolls hand.

R10. 2sc in each of the first 2 sts, 1sc in each of the last 11 sts (15)

R16-24. 1sc in each st around (19)

R25. 1sc in each of the first 3 sts, invdec, 1sc, invdec, 1sc in each of the next 8 sts (this round does not have a st count since it is not a complete round) Cut yarn leaving about a 10-inch tail for sewing and fasten off.

Machete Assembly
1. Lay machete on the piece of cardboard and trace around the machete. Cut out the shape making sure to cut slightly inside the drawn line so that the cardboard piece will fit into the crochet piece.

2. Fit the cardboard into the machete. Give the cardboard an extra little trim if it doesn’t fit.

3. Using the 10-inch pewter tail, whipstitch the top of the machete closed. Weave in end and cut any excess length.

4. Using the red fabric paint, paint the blade (curved) edge of the machete. Apply thicker paint to the curved edge, then thinner as you go up the side of the blade. I used fabric paint with a small squirt spout and just used that to apply and spread the fabric paint. A toothpick, old pencil, or similar type of item could also be used to apply the paint.

Assembly
1. Stuff the arms (only lightly stuff the top of the arms). Sew the arms closed and sew them onto the side of the body slightly angled towards the front.

2. Stuff the head and the body.

3. Using the 20-inch pewter tail from the shirt, sew the bum piece to the bottom of the shirt. Add more stuffing as needed while sewing this section closed.

4. Stuff the legs (only lightly stuff the top of the legs). Sew the legs closed and sew them onto the front, bottom of the shirt.

5. Using the longer tail from the machete handle, sew the machete to the hand. Tie off to the shorter black yarn, hiding it between the machete and the hand, and cut excess lengths.

6. Place mask onto doll’s head.
