Notes

For all dolls

  • I add a length of crochet braid around the neck to neaten/cover the neck join - choose one of the shirt colours for this.
  • I also added a length of the crochet braid around the tops of their boots in the character appropriate colours.
  • Eyes are from this tutorial by HodgePodge Crochet on YouTube; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqu9tWXEuM0
  • I sculpted the faces a little with a few well-placed stitches.

To avoid increase lines on the bottom of the head, I ‘split’ or stagger the increases like this;
Up to Rnd 34: As per pattern.
Rnd 35: 2sc, inc, * (4sc, inc) * repeat from * to * to last 2sts - finish the round with 2sc.
Rnd 36: As per pattern.
Rnd 37: 3sc, inc, * (6sc, inc) * repeat from * to * to last 3sts - finish the round with 3sc.
Rnd 38: As per pattern.
Rnd 39: 4sc, inc, * (8sc, inc) * repeat from * to * to last 4sts - finish the round with 4sc.
Rnd 40 and beyond: As per pattern.
So - the pattern hasn’t been altered at all!
You’ve simply moved the increases on all of the ‘even’ rounds and all ‘odd’ rounds remain the same.

Dirt Girl

Hands/Arms;
Skin colour to half way into Rnd 7, then orange and yellow stripes for the sleeves.

Legs/body/head;
Charcoal Blend (dark grey) for the boot soles to end of Rnd 4, bright yellow for the boots to end of Rnd 12, overall/pants colour to end of Rnd 22, orange and yellow stripes for the shirt to end of Rnd 32, then skin colour for the head.

Overalls/Coveralls
A simple sc rectangle in the same pink as the pants, then a round of sc in purple. Stitch in place - Dirt Girl has one big blue button and one small red button.

Belt
A crochet braid in purple.

Hair;
I made a hair cap in red, then hooked hair onto that and tied them into ‘Dirt Girl’s’ signature three pig tail look and tied them off firmly with red yarn to secure them, then with natural string.

Scrap Boy

Hands/Arms;
Skin colour into Rnd 12 (I try to keep colour changes to the back or inside of the arms), then navy blue for the sleeves.

Legs/body/head;
Light grey for the boot soles to end of Rnd 4, fawn for the boots to end of Rnd 12, dark orange pants colour to end of Rnd 22, navy blue for the shirt to end of Rnd 32, then skin colour for the head.

Vest/Waistcoat;
Using a light blue yarn, make only the ‘jacket’ part of the hoodie pattern - no need to add the sleeves or hood.
I folded the top corners of the vest to the inside to form a ‘v’ neck on the waistcoat. I used some black embroidery yarn to lace up the front of the vest similar to the pics that I had found online.

Belt
Using brown, make a chain long enough to go around the body, then work a row of hdc, finish off and stitch in place over top of the waistcoat/vest. I stitched a buckle onto the front of his belt. The pieces hanging off of his tool belt are simply little sc pieces folded and stitched in place.

Hair;
I made a hair cap with brown yarn and stitched it in place.

Costa the Garden Gnome

Hands/Arms;
Skin colour.

Legs/body/head;
Black for the boots to end of Rnd 12, mustard yellow pants colour to end of Rnd 22, light purple for the shirt to end of Rnd 32, then skin colour for the head.

Jacket;
Using a mauve yarn, make only the ‘jacket’ and ‘sleeve’ parts of the hoodie pattern - no need to add the hood.
I also didn’t bother to add any detailing to the jacket as it is all covered by his immense beard and most likely won’t be seen!

Belt
Make in the same way as ‘Scrap Boy’s’ belt using black yarn. I then stitched a yellow belt buckle over the front of his belt.

Beard
The Lionbrand ‘Thick & Quick’ made a fabulous beard. I started under the nose and hooked three strands, then moved down a row and, with his har in place, mapped out the shape of his beard and hooked two rows or beard, then trimmed into shape.

Hair
When the beard was complete, again with the hat in place, I made a chain long enough to reach around the back of the head from beard-to-beard,worked a row of single crochet and a row of ‘loop stitch’ (YouTube Tutorial; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iuR0OlDqH0g ). I later cut the loops to create his hair.

Hat and Goggles
Not pattern as such for those - I mostly winged it!
The hat started with a chain that sat snuggly around the head, then a few rounds of hdc, then I slowly decreased until I reached a point.
The goggles I made two black circles starting with 6sc and increasing out to (inc, 3sc), then I changed to the copper yarn and worked a round of sc in the back loops only, followed by another round of sc. I joined them together in the middle with a small sc’d piece, then crocheted around the outside of the whole piece and finished off with a round of reverse sc. The strap is crocheted braid in the copper colour. The shiny part at the front of the goggles is a round of sc in the copper colour finished off with a round of rev sc in a metallic copper thread. I stitched a ‘star’ into each black circle to make it look like a shiny surface.
