Stuffy Doll pattern

Stuffy Doll:

Body (Make 2)

CO 10 stitches
Row 1: KFB, k to last stitch, KFB
Row 2 and all even rows: Purl
Rows 5, 7, and 9: Repeat row 1
Rows 10-26: Work in plain stockinette stitch
Row 27: KFB, KFB, k to last 2 stitches, KFB, KFB
Row 29 and row 31: repeat row 27
Continue in stockinette until body measures 6 inches, or desired length

Divide for legs:
Next row: KFB, K13, Bind off 4, K13, KFB. Place first 15 stitches on a holder and only work 1 leg at a time.
Work each leg in stockinette until it measures 2.5 inches.
Next row: K1, K2Tog, k to last 3 stitches, K2Tog, K1
Repeat this decrease on all right side rows until 9 stitches remain. Bind Off and join yarn to 15 stitches on holder and repeat for leg 2.

Arms (Make 4: Note that the decreases at the end of the work will be the tops of the arms when sewing body together)

CO 7 stitches
Row 1: KFB, k to last stitch, KFB
Row 2 and all even: Purl
Row 3: Repeat row 1
Row 4-28: work in stockinette
Row 29: K1, K2tog, k to last 3 stitches, K2tog, K1
Continue decreasing this way until 5 stitches remain. Bind off.

Sewing: I stitches everything closed on the right side of the knitting to get the seam effect that is seen on the card. You’ll also want to stuff the pieces before finishing the sewing, so use your favorite fiber fill for this. I’m going to beat mine up some in the wash before I decorate it and may even use a crochet hook to pull bits of the fleecy inside to make it look more authentic. I’ll post my doll for reference, or you can use the card. Decorate to your liking after this!. use your technique of choice for this.
