Due to the nature of this pattern – the yarn and hook used is only a suggestion and any substitute may be used.
Size of finished product will vary depending on yarn and also size of hook used.
This cutie takes about an hour to make!
Size: approx 20/21 cm in length and 8 cm in width (Note – this size is to fit the books that I have bought my daughter)
How to adjust the size: Increase as follows to keep the balance between the different parts -this is the basic formula and also it all depends on the required length;
increase 1(2;3;4) row for the scarf;
increase 2 (4;6;8) rows for the face;
then increase 3 (6; 9; 12) rows for the hat.

I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.
