CROCHET TIP: Beg each round with 1 ch and finish each round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round.
First crochet the head and hat and then the body, the arms and hands and finish with the feet. Crochet with 1 thread and crochet hook size 2.5 mm.

Crochet 5 ch with off-white and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: 8 dc in ring – SEE CROCHET TIP!
ROUND 2: 2 dc in each dc = 16 dc.
ROUND 3: * 1 dc in first dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 24 dc.
ROUND 4: * 1 dc in each of the first 2 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 32 dc.
Now work 8 rounds with 1 dc in each dc.
Change to red. Crochet next round as follows for the rim of hat (replace first tr with 3 ch): * 1 tr in first dc, but wait with the last pull-through, crochet 1 tr in the same dc, but when doing the last pull-through pull thread through all 3 loops on hook *, repeat from *-* and finish round with 1 sl st in first st.
Continue with 1 dc in each st until piece measures a total of 6 cm, fill a little cotton wool in the head before continuing. Crochet next round as follows: * 7 dc, skip 1 dc *, repeat from *-* = 28 dc. Crochet 2 rounds with 1 dc in each dc. Crochet next round as follows: * 6 dc, skip 1 dc *, repeat from *-* = 24 dc. Crochet 2 rounds with 1 dc in each dc. Continue like this, i.e. dec 4 sts on every 3rd round until there are 4 sts left. Cut and tighten thread.

Crochet 5 dc with red through sts at bottom edge of the head, turn with 1 ch and crochet 2 dc in each st on return row = 10 dc. Turn with 1 ch and crochet 2 and 1 dc alternately in each dc = 15 dc. Now continue with 1 dc in each dc and turn each row with 1 ch, AT THE SAME TIME crochet stripes as follows: *2 rows grey and 2 rows red* until body measures approx 20 cm, cut the threads.

Crochet 4 dc with red along one side of body at the top, then crochet 4 dc in the back of these = a total of 8 dc. Continue in the round on these 8 sts with 1 dc in each dc until arm measures 6 cm.
HAND: Change to off-white. Crochet 1 round with 2 dc in each dc = 16 dc. Crochet 3 rounds with 1 dc in each dc, then crochet 2 dc tog across next round. Cut the thread, fill the hand with a little cotton wool and tighten thread. Crochet the other arm + hand in the same way on the other side of body.

Crochet 5 ch with black and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: 6 dc in ring
ROUND 2: 2 dc in each dc = 12 dc.
Continue in the round with 1 dc in each dc until piece measures approx 3.5 cm, fill foot with a little cotton wool and crochet tog at heel as follows: place foot double and crochet dc through both layers. Crochet the other foot in the same way and now sew feet to the bottom of body with approx 1.5 cm between them, and pointing outwards.

Ho realizzato questo segnalibro con i colori bianco e azzurro, simpaticissimo.

Ich glaube, es ist ein Fehler in der Anleitung. Wenn der Körper gehäkelt wird, startet man mit 5 fM, dann werden 2 fM in jede fM gehäkelt = 10fM. So weit, so gut. Dann heßt es weiter: 2 fM in jede fM = 15 fM. Das sind dann aber 20fM. Ich hab's ausprobiert und denke, das sind zu viel. Daher vermute ich, dass es heißen müsste: 2 fM in jede 2. fM. Oder?

Liebe Claudia, vielen Dank für den Hinweis, Sie haben völlig Recht, es war ein Fehler in der Übersetzung, der ist jetzt korrigiert.

Bonjour, Non, non, pas "Madame" mais Monsieur :) j'ai regardé la vidéo mais ici c'est un tube donc si j'ai bien compris c'est pour fermer juste le bout du tube? merci pour tout ces bons conseils

DROPS Design 17.11.2012 kl. 10:36:

Bonjour Monsieur et désolée :) Effectivement, vous crochetez à travers les 2 épaisseurs pour fermer le pied. Bon crochet !

Geoffroy 14.11.2012 - 09:05:

Bonjour, Je n'ai pas trouvé d'erreur mais parcontre je n'ai pas compris cette phrase:" placer le pied en double et crocheter en ms dans les 2 épaisseurs. " comment fait-on? et aussi pour avoir les côtés bien droit et propre comme sur la photo au niveau des rayures? merci Cordialement

DROPS Design 14.11.2012 kl. 09:44:

Bonjour Madame Geoffroy, vous pliez le pied pour crocheter ensemble et fermer : cf vidéo "Crocheter 2 pièces pour les assembler" dans notre vidéothèque. Pour changer de couleur, écoulez la dernière maille avec la couleur suivante - cf vidéo crocheter différentes couleurs. Bon crochet !

I almost squealed when I saw this pattern. So cute! I am going to make one today! I love it!

Jeg synes det er litt rart at det er heklenål nr 2,5 og 28 fm / 10 cm. Er dette riktig? Skulle heller tro det var heklenål 2 eller 26 fm.
