Round Plush Skull

By Janet Carrillo "damn it Janet, let's crochet!"
     For those who love cute things, this little skull is the perfect size to hold on your palm or attach to your bag as a keychain and be your traveling companion. You can also make a small blanket and attach it to make a lovey for your little one.

approx. 2.5"height x 3"length

*Crochet hook size: 3.5mm (E)
*Worsted Weight Yarn: White (30yds) & Gray (1yd)
*Stitch Markers to mark your rounds
*Felt: Black
*Tapestry Needle
*Hot Glue

PATTERN NOTES - must-read...
 Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round/row indicate the total number of stitches.
 Always use stitch markers to mark your rounds.
 There's no need to sl st and/or ch when going to the next round unless stated to do so.
 Always do the 1st stitch where you slip stitch from the previous round.
 The chain, in the beginning, does NOT count as one stitch unless stated otherwise.
 You slip stitch on the first sc, not on top of the chain 1.

  Rnd 1: 6sc in magic ring (6)
  Rnd 2: 2sc in each st around (12)
  Rnd 3: sc in next st, 2sc in next st around (18)
  Rnd 4: sc in next 2 sts, 2sc in next st around (24)
  Rnd 5: sc in next 3 sts, 2sc in next st around (30)
  Rnd 6: sc in next 4 sts, 2sc in next st around (36)
  Rnd 7: sc in next 11 sts, 2sc in next st around (39)
  Rnd 8-13: sc in each st around (39)
  Rnd 14: sc in next 11 sts, sc2tog around (36)
  Rnd 15: sc in next 4 sts, sc2tog around (30)
  Rnd 16: sc in next 3 sts, sc2tog around (24)
Start stuffing the head/body moderately firm.
  Rnd 17: sc in next 2 sts, sc2tog around (18)
  Rnd 18: sc in next st, sc2tog around (12)
  Rnd 19: sc2tog around (6)
F/O and leave a tail for closing. Add any bits of stuffing need it to finish shaping the skull. Weave in the tail through the final round and draw up tight to close. Secure and weave in the ends.

JAW with white 
Turn the skull upside down, we will be working between the loops from round 16. Attach your yarn to any stitch. ch2, dc in same st you attach, dc in next 7 sts, ch2, sl st in last st
F/O, secure and weave in the ends. 

     I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I personally like to use matching thread).
     TIP...For anything that I’m going to be using felt, I like to first sketch it out on white paper and make a stencil of what I need. Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.
     EYES...using black felt cut out 2 ovals. Place them between rounds 8 and 11.
     NOSE...using black felt cut out a small heart. Place it upside down on rounds 12 and 13.
     CRACK...on the top center of the skull embroider a crack using gray embroidery floss, thread, or yarn.
