Little Witch - Pattern

I meant to get this little gal up yesterday for the first day of October, but I was having a lazy day and didn't feel like typing.
Anyway, Happy October! Are you getting ready for Halloween yet? Well if you are here is a little cheery witch to help you along. She is the same size as my Little Scarecrow and made pretty much the same way. I've added a few accessories with her for a little more fun.

Worsted weight yarn, multiple colors
Hook G (4.00 mm)
Stitch marker
Yarn needle
Embroidery thread for embellishments

ch - chain
sl st - slip stitch
sc  - single crochet
hdc - half double crochet
sc2tog - single crochet two together
BLO - back loop only
FLO - front loop only

Note: Worked in continuous rounds, place stitch marker in the first stitch of round, moving it up each round to mark the beginning of the round.

Before sewing the hat on the head I added a little bit of hair. I used a hair tutorial from EssHaych. It is the same method I used for the adding the hay around the Little Scarecrow. I left the top round bare since the hat will cover that part of the head.

 Once you have the hair on, sew the hat to the head. I lightly stuffed it to give it some stiffness.

 Add a face and there you go, a little witch to help celebrate the holiday season.

This pattern is for personal use only. If you would like to sell a finished product, please credit me for the design. Happy Stitches!
