Row 2-6: ch 1, turn, hdc in same st as ch-1 and each rem st across, cut yarn after row 6. (63 hdc)

Mold and Attach Hair Panel:

1. Tuck up the ends to create a little bulk. Fold stitches 1 & 2 onto 3 & 4 and sew into place with the hair color yarn. Fold stitches 60 & 61 onto 62 & 63 and sew into place.

2. Lay the folded stitches of the 1,2,3,4,5,6 end lined up with the skintone stitches on the left side of the hood (left side envisioning being worn), sew into place there along the short folded edge.

3. Continue to sew into place at the line where the blue and skintone meet (slightly have the blue overlap the skintone so there is no ugly gapping) stop 1” to the right (when looking at the hood straight on) short of the midline of the skintone visor extension. Take the opposite folded end and pin temporarily in place matched up the the skintone edge as you did for the 1st folded edge. Using the slack that is still present in the hair panel, pinch up about 1” to create the “hair bump”. Use stitches to tack this shut up the pinch and to the hair line as well. Continue to sew along the front edge until the hair panel is fully sewn to the hairline across the front of the hood.

4. Sew along the entire back long edge of the hair panel attaching it into place, BUT place the smallest amount of stuffing inside as you sew. You want to give it a little body but not allow it to show through the stitches.

Eyes (Make 2):

***REFER TO THIS PICTURE THROUGHOUT FACE CREATION AND SHADING***

With G hook and double strand black, make magic ring, ch 1:

Rnd 1: make 6 sc in the ring, sl st to 1st sc made, pull tightly on tail to close ring. (6)

Rnd 2: do not turn, 2 sc in each sc around, sl st to 1st sc made. (12)

Rnd 3: switch to H hook, ch 1, sl st loosely in the BACK LOOP ONLY of each sc around, sl st to the 1st sl st made, cut yarn.

With single strand of dark gray yarn and a tapestry needle, sew an “X” shape in the middle of each eye, as you would write it on paper “open end” of the “x” at top and bottom. Using the same gray yarn, sew little straight stitches around the circumference of the circle just inside the final sl st round.

With 1 ply of a separated strand of white yarn (or fingering weight cotton as I used) and a 1.5mm hook (tiniest you have probably!) make a chain of 6.

Sew the chain 6 to the eye using the photo as a guide, position the same on both eyes and beginning at about the 4 o’clock position and ending about the 6 o’clock position.

Using the photo as a guide, sew or glue each eye into place on the hood visor, making sure you leave a little room for the eyebrows.

You can definitely use a precision tip glue gun to tack these pieces down. It WILL hold and is stronger than you may think! You can use a tooth pick to apply the glue, it is a one shot deal. If you use to much it is hard to correct.

Eyebrows:

Left Eyebrow (envisioning it being worn):

With G hook and double strand of a medium brown, chain 11:

Row 1: sl st in 2nd ch from hook and nxt ch, sc in nxt 5 sts, sl st in last 3 chs, cut yarn, knot beginning and end tails together tightly, leave tail long to sew to face.

Right Eyebrow (envisioning it being worn):

With G hook and double strand of a medium brown, chain 11:

Row 1: sl st in 2nd ch from hook and nxt 2 sts, sc in nxt 5 sts, sl st in last 2 sts, cut yarn, knot tails firmly, leave tail for sewing to face.

With a dark tan yarn single strand and tapestry needle, sew 7 vertical straight stitches in each eye brow (see photo as a guide) to simulate hairs on the brows and create depth. Weave in tails and attach the eye brows to the face; the 2 sl st end is closest to the ears and the 3 sl st end is closest to the nose on both sides.

Mouth:

Lips:

With G hook and double strand bright pink, chain 5:

Row 1: sl st in 2nd ch from hook and each rem chain across, cut yarn.

Using the tail, sew to the face using the photo as a guide, turning the corners slightly up into a wee bit of smile as you sew.

Stitch Line:

Using the same dark tan you used for eyebrow accent hair held single strand and G hook, chain 50, cut yarn.

Either sew or glue this OVER the mouth using the photo as a guide, turned up at the ends. The ends on either side are just under the eyes and in line with where ears would be on the face.

Stitch Accents:

With a tapestry needle and a light coral or salmon shade of yarn, sew small vertical stitches along the stitch line of the mouth.

Lip Accent:

Separate a strand of the lip color yarn into two plies. With a tapestry needle, come back and make tiny straight stitches OVER the dark tan stitch line so it looks like the mouth has an opening that was sewn shut.

Ears (Make 2):

With G hook and double strand skintone yarn, make a magic ring, ch 1:

Row 1: 6 sc in the ring, pull tail to close ring. (6)

Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc in the 1st st, 2 sc in the nxt st, (sc in nxt st, 2 sc in nxt st) twice. (9)

Row 3: ch 1, turn, 2 scblo in the 1st st, scblo in nxt 7 sts, 2 scblo in last st. (11)

Row 4: ch 1, turn, sc in 1st st, 2 sc in nxt st, sc in nxt 2 sts, 2 sc in nxt st, sc in nxt 3 sts, 2 sc in nxt st, sc in nxt st, 2 sc in last st. (15)

Row 5: ch 1, turn, sl st LOOSELY in the BACK LOOP ONLY of each st across, cut yarn leaving tail to sew to head.

Pin the ears in place at same level as eyes and on TOP of the blue hair panel. (The ears emerge from the hair) using the photo as a guide. Make sure the are even top to bottom and also front to back. You want them to curve forward slightly so they “cup” and sew so they “countersink” into the hair panel and look as if they are coming from inside the hair.

Nose:

With G hook and double strand skintone yarn, chain 6:

Rnd 1: hdc in 2nd ch from hook and nxt 3 chs, ( ch 1, hdc, ch 1, sc, ch 1, hdc, ch 1) all in the last ch, working up the opposite side of the beginning chain, sc in nxt 3 chs, sl st in last ch, cut yarn, knot tails firmly and cut yarn to sew to face.

Sew to nose between eyes, pinch up the end with the bunch of stitches to create the tip of the nose.

Dragonfly Clip:

Body:

With E hook and single strand golden yarn, ch 14:

Rnd 1: sl st in 2nd ch from hook and nxt ch, ch 3, sk nxt 3 chs, sl st in nxt ch 7 chs, ch 4, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and nxt 2 chs, sl st in the same ch at the base of the ch 4, ch 4 again, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and nxt 2 chs, sl st once more in the same ch at the base of the ch 4, sl sl in the nxt 6 chs, cut yarn.

Wings:

With the right side of the stitches of the body facing up, join single strand pink yarn with E hook in the 3rd last sl st made on the end of rnd 1, ch 8, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and nxt ch, sc in nxt ch, hdc in nxt 2 chs, sc in nxt ch, sl st in last ch, sl st in same ch on body you began from, sl st into nxt ch on body, ch 7, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and nxt ch, sc in nxt ch, hdc in nxt 2 chs, sl st in nxt ch, sl st in nxt ch on golden body on cut yarn.

Turn so the opposite side of the golden body is right side up with looped end to the right and rejoin pink yarn with a sl st in the chain that is opposite the ch you worked the wing closest to the loop end on the other side, ch 7, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and nxt ch, sc in nxt ch, hdc in nxt 2 chs, sl st in nxt ch, sl st in same st on golden body you joined to, sl st in nxt st on golden body, ch 8, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and nxt ch, sc in nxt ch, hdc in nxt 2 chs, sc in nxt ch, sl st in nxt ch, sl st in same st on golden body this chain 8 emerged from, cut yarn.

With a fuchsia yarn and tapestry needle sew eyes on the body at the looped end. With light turquoise yarn sew straight stitches along the length of the golden body. Weave in all ends. Sew or glue over right ear onto hair panel.

Braided Detail:

Cut 3 strands of each of the blue yarns you used for the hair (6 total) that are 60” long each. Fold in half and slide through the corner most front stitch of the main hood in the end of the blue rows. Separate evenly into 3 sections and braid the strands until it is about 7” long. Overhand knot as close to the end of the braid as you can and trim ends to about ½”.

Repeat the entire process for the opposite side of the hood.

Weave in any remaining ends.

Optional Shading:

I shade with eye shadows and dry brushed on acrylic paints. The eyes are shaded with pinkish red shadow and a makeup brush. Do a little at a time. You can always add more. You cannot take away if you do too much. It does not surround the eyes completely, just the lower 2/3rds. I shaded the nose with brown shadows along each side and a smidge of dry brushed white down the center. The mouth and stitch line across the mouth are also shaded with brown shadows. She also has freckles under each eye. I created these with acrylic paint and the end of the brush stick dotted on.
