appropriate to your crochet
density, I use 2 mm hook (US B).

For the clown with red hair
I used these colors:

blue) as a substitute for
Yarnart jeans 81

in this pattern. You can
choose the yarn to your

2 round: (1 sc, inc)6 (18) 3 round: (2 sc, inc)6 (24)
4 round: (3 sc, inc)6 (30) 5 round: (4 sc, inc)6 (36)
6 round: (5 sc, inc)6 (42) 7 round: (6 sc, inc)6 (48)
8 round: (7 sc, inc)6 (54) 9 round: (8 sc, inc)6 (60)

26 round: (2 sc, dec)6 (18) 27 round: (1 sc, dec)6 (12)
28 round: 6 dec (6)
Stuff the piece firmly as
you go.
Secure the thread, fasten
off, pull the opening
closed. Weave in the
thread end inside of the
head.

HAIR
Crochet in orange color.
Insert the crochet hook under one of the magic ring
stitches. Make chain 21.
From the second chain from the hook: work 20 sc, this will
be the first hair strand.
Crochet densely enough. Make sure the chain is not
twisted, otherwise the strand wouldn’t be curled.

Then work 2 sc along the magic ring stitches and make
another hair strand (ch21, from the second ch from the
hook: 20 sc), 2 sc along the head round and make one
more hair strand, 2 sc along the head round. This way
we got three hair strands in the first round.

We are going to make hair strands skipping one round apart
from other hairround. Skip the firstround ofthe head and start
to crochetthe second round with hair strands along the second
round ofthe head. In the nextrounds we will crochet 3 sc
between two hair strands along the head.
Start to crochet the second round. We‘ve worked 2 sc along the
head at the first round, work one more sc and make another hair
strand, then 3 sc along the head, make a hair strand, 3 sc along
the head, make a hair strand. Repeat till the end of the round.
Then go to the third round with hair (the head’s fourth round)
and continue repeating the rapport. I will not write how many
hair strands we should have in every round. It doesn’t matter
much. Be attentive, don’t skip the head stitches, make increases
into every increase, it means that we make two sc from one st.

Continue crocheting in rounds, until six rounds with hair
strands are worked (the first round with three hair strands is
taken into account).

Count 25 sts from the end of the last round and place a pin.
Turn the work. Now we are going to make hair at the head
back, work in reverse direction, also skipping one head round.
Repeat the same rapport (3 sc along the head, a hair strand)
till the pin. Turn the work again, skip one round and crochet till
the beginning of the previous round. Secure the thread, fasten
off, weave in end inside of the piece.
This way we crocheted our hair, making the face boundary.
The width of the face is 25 sts.

The hair is finished. We have 6 rounds and two turning rows.
Hair strands are curled by themselves, but you can curve
them with your fingers. Also you can arrange them evenly so
there won’t be spaces between them.

NOSE
Crochet with the thread of
cherry color.
6 sc in MR
1 round: 6 inc (12)
2-3 rounds (2 rounds): 12 sc
4 round: 6 dec
Secure the thread, fasten off,
leaving a long tail for sewing.
Stuff the piece.

FACE DETAILS
Sew the nose, leaving 6 sts down from the hairline.
Embroider the eyes with black coloured thread. Mouline
threads can be used, I used Yarnart jeans divided into two
thread strands.
Insert the needle into the head bottom and bring out from the
point 1. Skip 5 sts and reinsert the needle into the point 2,
bring out from the point 3 (1 stitch higher and 1 diagonally to
the right). Pick the stitch up and reinsert into the point 3
again, bring out from the point 4 (1 stitch higher and 1
diagonally to the right). Reinsert the needle into the point 4
and bring out from the point 5 (1 st to the right).

Pick the stitch up, insert the needle into the point 5 and
bring out from the point 6 (1 st to the right and lower
diagonally). Pick the stitch up, reinsert the needle into the
point 6 and bring out from the head bottom. Secure the
thread, fasten off and weave in ends inside of the piece.
The second eye is embroidered in the same way.
Count 2 rounds lower the eyes and embroider freckles
with the red color, making horizontal stitches with the
wide of 1 st.
To make the eyes sadly looking, move the 1st point 2 sts
higher. Other points are located lower than the first stitch
is and respectively to it.
