Pattern:
*Note: Do NOT join rounds. You are "working in the round".

Round 1: Ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook. [6 sc]

Round 3: *sc in next st, 2 sc in next st*, around. [18 sc]
Rounds 4-6: sc in each st around. [18 sc]

Use a contrast color yarn to weave "X"s for eyes on head and to weave a mouth.

Begin stuffing now, continue to stuff as work progresses.

Round 9: 2 sc in each st around. [12 sc]

Use contrasting color to weave fingers on end of arm.

Weave hair to top of head anyway you want. Knot a few random strands, make a mohawk, do braids, etc.
