This is Rainbow Rachael…  She is a quick fun crochet project!  She is made using small amounts of any color of yarn you want,,, Perfect for using up your last couple of yards of yarn!!!

.

Supplies:

Worsted Weight Yarn –  Body: 2-3 yards per stripe for a total of 15-20 yards      Hair: 3-5 yards per curl for a total of approx 50 yards.

Hook- Size G

Yarn Needle

Poly-Fil

2 Black Buttons and 1 decorative button for hair optional

.

Stitches: 

Sl St – Slip Stitch       Ch – Chain          Sc – Single Crochet          Dec Sc – Decrease Single Crochet         Hdc – Half Double Crochet

.

Tips ~ To join small amounts of yarn I love to use the Russian Join, This method is wonderful for making a seamless join without having ends to weave in!  Click HERE  for an instructional video

I also like to start with the Magic Ring, This method makes a nice beginning when working in the round.  Click HERE for an instructional video.

.

Instructions:

     Body - You will be changing color to meet your own personal taste.  I like using 5-6 colors.

Magic Ring

Row 1:  Ch 1, Sc 6 in Magic Ring. Join with Sl St = 6 Sc

Row 2: Ch 1, 2 Sc in each St around. Join with Sl St = 12 Sc

Row 3: Ch 1, Sc  around. Join with Sl St = 12 Sc

Row 4: Ch 1, (2 Sc in first St, 1 Sc in next St) repeat around. Join with Sl St. = 18 Sc

Row 5: Ch 1, Sc around. Join with Sl St = 18 Sc

Row 6: Ch 1, (2 Sc in first St, 1 Sc in next two Sts) repeat around. Join with Sl St = 24 Sc

Row 7-16: Ch 1, Sc around. Join with Sl St = 24 Sc

1st Leg~

Row 1: Ch 1, Sc in the first 12 Sts, Join to 1st Sc. Leave remaining Sts unworked (this will be worked next for the second leg) = 12 Sc

Row 2-7: Ch 1, Sc around. Join with Sl St. = 12 Sc

Row 8: Ch 1, Dec Sc 6 times. Join with Sl St. = 6 Sc. Finish off leaving a long tail for sewing foot together.

With yarn needle, draw yarn through the 6 Sc and pull together to close. Weave in end.

2nd Leg~

Row 1: Join yarn in any remaining St of body base.  Ch 1, Sc around remaining 12 Sts. Join with Sl St.  If you have more that 12 Sts, use a Dec Sc so you only have 12 Sts for the second leg also.  = 12 Sc

Rows 2-8: Repeat rows 2-8 for Leg 1.  Before finishing off, stuff doll with Poly-Fil. Finish off in the same manner as Leg 1.

Hair~

Use 3-8 different colors of yarn for hair.

Make 8

Starting with a 2″tail – Chain 21, 2 Hdc in 3rd Ch from hook, 3 Hdc in each St to end. Finish off leaving a 2″ tail = 56 Hdc    The Hdc chain will naturally curl. Tie the 2-2″ tails into a knot. These ends will also be used for attaching the Hair to the head.

*Use Picture for Hair and Button placement

Attaching Hair:  Using the 2 tails left on each piece of hair, tie each curl to the top of the head in a random order.

Bangs:  Cut several pieces of scrap yarn into 4″ pieces.  Using 2 strands at a time, attach in a fringe method to the bang area. Trim bangs evenly

Eyes:  Sew 2 Black Buttons onto face directly below bangs

Decorative Button for hair.  Sew button into hair

.

Enjoy your Rainbow Rachael... I hope you will stop by my Facebook and Ravelry page and post your project pictures… I would LOVE to see them!!
