Materials:

  • Approx 10g of 100% cotton aran yarn in two colours of choice

    The Face

    (If you aren't a fan of the magic ring, CH4, SL ST into the first chain, CH3, then DC 11 times into the ring, pull yarn to close the centre, SL ST into first DC)

    Round 2: CH3 (this counts as the first DC), DC into the same stitch, 2DC into each stitch around, SL ST into the first stitch. (24) 

    Round 3: CH3 (this counts as the first DC), DC into the same stitch, *DC in the next stitch, 2DC in next stitch* repeat around, SL ST into the first DC. (36)

    Round 4: CH3 (this counts as the first DC), DC into the same stitch, *DC into the next 2 stitches, 2DC into the next stitch* repeat around, SL ST into the first DC and fasten off. (48)

     

     

    The Border

    Round 5: Join with your second colour, CH4 (this counts as the first TR), TR into the same stitch, DC into the next 2 stitches, HDC into the next 2, SC into the next 2, HDC into the next 2, DC into the next 2, 2TR into the next stitch.
    *CH2, 2TR into the next stitch, DC into the next 2, HDC into the next 2, SC into the next 2, HDC into the next 2, DC into the next 2, 2TR into the next stitch* repeat until you reach the first TR and SL ST to join.
    Round 6: CH3 (this counts as the first DC), DC into each stitch around, 2DC CH2 2DC into the corners (the CH2 spaces between TR). SL ST into the first DC and fasten off.

     

    Sewing The Face

    Using your yarn and darning needle, insert the needle through the back of third round and sew in-between the first and second round to create a vertical line, repeat this one more time to create the first eye.

    Then create a small horizontal stitch slightly to the right, between the third and fourth rounds. Insert your needle between the middle of this line and begin to sew the rest of the smile using a backstitch.

    Sew the second eye, then turn over your work, tie the two ends in a knot and weave in your ends.
