Magic ring, SC 8 in ring, continue to SC in rounds.

Round 3 – 5: SC in each stitch around (16 SC)
Round 6: SC decrease, SC in next 2 stitches, repeat around.
Round 7-14: SC in each stitch around (12 SC)
Stuff head and limbs and sew closed. Use your tapestry needle to stitch onto sides of the fleece blanket after you crochet around the edges of it.
Cut a 10.5 x 12 piece of the fleece fabric. I created holes to crochet through with a skip stitch blade and a ruler as a guide. Holes should be made about a 1/2 inch from the edge. It is also helpful to cut the corners into rounded corners so it will lay down flat when you crochet the edge.
I purchase my skip stitch blade from the Project Linus website but unfortunately it looks like it is no longer available there. You can find the same one HERE on the Skip-Stitch website. I have the “original skip stitch blade” and you will need a Fiskars 45mm Contour Rotary Cutter which I purchased from Amazon.
