**The whole project is worked in ROUNDS unless indicated otherwise**

HEAD (with light blue)

R1-- MC 6

R2-- INC x 6 (12)

R3-- SC 1, INC, SC 2, INC, SC 1, INC, SC 2, INC, SC 1, INC (17)

R4-- SC 2, INC, SC 3, INC, SC 3, INC, SC 3, INC, SC 2 (21)

R5-- SC 3, INC, SC 6, INC, SC 6, INC, SC 3 (24)

R6-- SC 10, INC, SC 13 (25)

R7-- Even (25)

** Begin stuffing lightly. Continue as you go along **

R10-- SC 2, DEC, SC 3, DEC, SC 3, DEC, SC 3, DEC, SC 2 (17)

R11-- DEC, SC 1, DEC, SC 2, DEC, SC 1, DEC, SC 2, DEC, SC 1 (12)

R12-- DEC until shut

Eyes: use black. Embroider

Mouth: use electric blue. Embroider

Teeth: use white. Embroider

HAIR (with electric blue)

Repeat Rounds 1 to 7 from “HEAD”

**You will start working in ROWS**

CH 1, turn

Row 8-- Starting in 1st stitch from hook, SC 15 (15)

CH 1, turn

Row 9-- SC 7, DEC, SC 6 (14)

CH 1, turn

Row 10-- SC 6, DEC, SC 6 (13)

CH 1, turn

Row 11-- SC 5, DEC, SC 6 (12)

CH 1, turn

Row 12 – Even (12)

Now you are going to make the BEARD. I recommend you place the hair on the head so you can ajust the tension (or length) of the beard. The beard should be tight and have no slack at all, so please reduce Row 12A and/or 13 if it doesn’t feel right.

Row 12A -- CH 6 and Sl ST, in 1st stitch on other side, turn.

Row 13-- 8 DC over CH 6 from previous row. Sl ST in 1st stitch on other side, turn.89

Row 14-- Even 8 SC, Sl st.

F/O, leave tail

Attach to head and brush (with metal brush) hair from bottom to top and beard from edge of beard to bottom. Place the hair and beard like Beast would. (I do put a bit of hairspray to make it stay in place)

Step 3: Arms + Legs+ Body

Picture of Arms + Legs+ Body

ARMS x 2 (with light blue)
