Hi I’m Lady!

  • Worsted weight yarn (#4) in Red, Black, and Aran (I used red heart super saver yarn)

Notes:

  • The head and arms are worked in continuous rounds (amigurumi style) and the blanket is worked in joined rounds (sl st and ch 3).

Assembly:

Step 1: Place the hat on top of the head. I chose not to sew it because it’s such a snug fit but you can sew it if you’d like.

Step 2: Sew the head to the first row of the blanket (the center of the blanket).

Step 3: Sew the arms to the second row of the blanket. If you’d like to change the placement of the arms to where you desire you can.

Step 4: Pick up a stitch on top of the head in the center and pull the antenna through. If you’d like to secure the antenna better you can sew it after you do this step.
