Friendly Crochet Zombie Doll

If you are a fan of The Walking Dead TV show or you just happen to like zombies then I think you might like this crocheted zombie! Unlike typical zombies who are mindless, reanimated corpses with a hunger for human flesh, this little guy is very friendly and likes to snuggle :) Mark your calendars for Feb. 9, 2014  for the Season 5 Premiere of The Walking Dead on AMC!

Materials:
-Green worsted weight yarn (I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Dusty Green), you will also need a little bit of white, black and red yarn as well.
-Size G crochet hook
-Poly-fil stuffing
-Stitch marker
-Tapestry needle
-One small safety eye or button

Fasten off leaving a long tail on one of the pieces.

After you have attached the eyes (pattern below) and mouth (stitch on with tapestry needle and black yarn) to one of the head pieces, sew the two pieces together. Stuff lightly with poly-fil before you close it up.

Surface slip stitch (tutorial HERE) the red blood on the mouth if you want. Do this before you sew the two head pieces together as well.

With your tapestry needle, sew both eyes onto one piece of the head. Use a small button or a safety eye in the middle of the bigger eye. Make and “X” with black yarn in the smaller eye.

    When I showed that to my son, he got so excited that I had to start making it nearly straight away :-)

    I dont know if Im having a brain fart or what lol but Im having trouble with these eyes…..Ive tried a couple ways, and nothing is working out. I may just take your owl eye pattern and use it for these also (just smaller)
    I usually dont have trouble with circles ….hum wonder what the deal is

    The large zombie eye: ISSUES- "Round 3: S SC in first, SC in next stitch, repeat around, join (15 SC – "
    QUESTION: what does the S SC stand for? Are you meaning to say SC decrease? If so Im just not getting it correct. Please help. Frustrated.
