Yarn information:

For this project, I used cotton yarn Bella (Fios Pingouin, TEX 370, 5ply, 12WPI) with a 2mm crochet hook and cotton yarn Anne (Círculo Produtos, TEX 295, Ne 4/2, 2ply, 14WPI) with a 1.5mm crochet hook.


Size:

Approximately 16cm. The actual size of the finished item may change depending on the materials used. If you use different sizes of hook and yarn, make sure you adapt the size of the eyes too.


My abbreviations (based on US terms):

* MR - magic ring

* ST - stitch

* CH - chain

* SL ST - slip stitch

* SC - single crochet

* INC - increase (2sc in the same st)

* DEC - decrease (sc 2 together)

* HDC - half double crochet

* DC - double crochet

* HTR - half treble crochet

* TR - treble crochet

* (STITCH)xNUMBER - number of times you have to repeat that stitch

* [ ] - total number of stitches


Tips:

* If you don’t know how to do one of the crochet stitches used in this pattern you can search on YouTube for “name of the stitch + tutorials” and you’ll find some very easy and detailed video tutorials for beginners.

* The rows that don’t mention to do a chain between them are worked in continuous rounds, so it’ll be easier if you use a stitch marker to mark every last stitch from the row.

R2: Do sl st into 2st going up to the next 2 rows from the cap. By doing that, you’ll skip a row and start to do the curls in the next one. Continue making ch5, 3sc in each st next, 2sl st on the row from the cap.

Repeat R2 until filling the whole cap with curls.

Fasten off. You can sew or glue the hair in the head if you want.


Heart: (2mm crochet hook / pink yarn or your choice of colour)

R4: 1sc in each st around [18]

Fasten off.


PART 2

R1-R4: do the same as part 1, but do not fasten off and insert a stitch marker in the last st.

R5: Insert the hook into the st next to the last you did in part 1. Do 18sc around it and insert the hook into the st next to the first st attached to the part 1 (next to the stitch marker) and do another 18sc around it. It'll create a hole in the middle, which we'll have to sew in the end to close it. The last st you must do it's the one with the stitch marker on it. [36]

R6-R7 (2 rows): 1sc in each st around [36]

R9-R10 (2 rows): 1sc in each st around [30]

R16: (sc, dec)x6 [12]

R17: (dec)x6 [6]

Fasten off leaving a long tail.


Close this hole made at the end of the heart, then pass the thread through it until it reaches the hand, so you can sew it together. Do it for both hands and pass the thread through the heart again to sew that first hole made in the beginning from joining the 2 parts. Hide the thread inside the heart and fasten off.


Wings: make 2 (1.5mm crochet hook / white yarn or your choice of colour)

R1: 3sc, 3hdc, 3dc, 3htr, 3tr inside the MR, close the ring [15]

R2: ch3 and turn, 3tr, 3htr, 3dc, 3hdc, 3sc [15]

R3: ch1 and turn, 1sc in each st around [15]

R4: ch1 and turn, sl st, (4dc in the same st, sl st in the next st)x7 [15]

Fasten off and leave a long tail. Use this tail to sew the wings in the body.


Halo: (1.5mm crochet hook / golden yarn or your choice of colour)

Make a knot with the golden thread in a piece of handicraft wire. Then start to make single crochets thru the wire until you reach the desired size for the halo, and sl st in the first st. Attach the halo into the hair using the wire you still have left.
