Difficulty: Easy

-Use size 7 jumbo yarn for this pattern. This is know as β€œt-shirt yarn”. I used 2 skeins of Bernat Maker Big in color Green Pea. I bought this at JoAnns, but it is available on Amazon as well.

-Instead of sewing limbs and eyes on, weave them on using a slightly smaller crochet hook with your bulky yarn. Pull your bulky yarn through the limb, into the body, then pull the yarn through the body, out to the limb. Repeat this until the limb is secure and finish off.

-We start by making the body. We then make the lip, then start creating the head. The head and body are all worked together, not separate, so you do not need to sew them together. We then create the eyelids & eyes, sew them together, and pin them to the head. Then, we create all four limbs and finally create the handle. After all of this, we weave each part onto the body.
