At the end of round 23 pinch the arm flat and make 5 SC across the top to close, fasten off and leave a long tail to sew onto the body.

Assembling The Body

Sew the head onto the last round of the body, making sure to have the facial features centered. Add more stuffing as you go to make it firm and less wobbly.

Feel free to use pins to hold it in place. I like to place the head where I want it and see what round on the bottom of the head I want to try to sew onto, it gives me a visual and helps keep it even all the way around.

I used the same technique here as when we attached the hair hat to the head.

Last, sew the arms onto the body centered with the head at row 50.

Your doll is complete! I hope you have enjoyed making this pattern. Feel free to add a little bow or flower to accessorize! The flower in the Berry Patch Bunny or bows from Emma would make a great accessory!

Be sure to share your doll in the Grace and Yarn Crochet Group on Facebook, I'd love to see it!

Thank you for making this a fun CAL!
