“Call my name when you are in danger or scared, and I will show up to protect you,” he says. He holds out his hand, and they touch palms to seal the deal.

Let’s crochet together! Every week, I will upload a part of his pattern here. The first of this 3-part series began from last week.

You can tag me on my IG and/or FB to share your work-in-progress pictures. Should you encounter any issues, you can email me at myartpetite@gmail.com.

Let’s work on his ears this week. It should take you less than an hour to complete.

    “Cap it onto the outer ear.
    Pick up the stitch from the outer ear and work a sc in every alternate stitch of the inner ear.”
    Please enlighten me. Thank you.

      Hi Cheyserr,

      Thanks for reaching out to me ^_^

      With regards to your question on the ears, the st counts for both inner and outer ears are diff hence it’s not possible to match/crochet each stitch perfectly. The idea is just for the outer ear to “cap” the inner one. If it’s made in a way where the st counts are equal, then you probably won’t be able to see the red outer ears after stuffing it.

      What I did was to crochet them together every alternate stitch i.e. skip a stitch or so. You may have some leftover stitches after crocheting every alternate st. Just crochet what’s left so long as the stuffing doesn’t fall out 🙂
