Alternate Frill Option
Use the following Rnd to create an alternate version of the frill crown which is slightly larger and has a white edging. I’ve even made a second full length video for it which you can watch here!
*Note: dcinc = Double Crochet Increase (2dc in the same stitch)
Rnd 6*: sc 6, working in FLO, sc 1, hdc 1, dcinc 1, dc 1, dcinc 1, dc 2, dcinc 1, dc 1, dcinc 1, hdc 1, sc 1 (22)
Using a strand of white yarn begin going around the outer stitches of the frill towards the center. When you reach the center hide the end down through the center of the frill and into the body. Repeat this same process on the opposite side of the frill so that the white stitches are both pointing inward towards the center of the face.
Rnd 7: sc 6, working in BLO from Rnd 5, sc 12 (18)
Rnd 8: sc 1, bo, sc 2, bo, sc 13 (18)
Add eyes and horns. Eyes go into Rnd 3 stitch number 6 and 11.
Horns are sewn on into the center (using the unused FLO from Rnd 1 as a guide), and just under the frill in Rnd 5 over stitches 10 and 14. See video at (08:18) for detailed instructions.
Rnd 9 - 11: sc in each st (18 x 3)
Rnd 12: sc 2, bo, sc 3, bo, sc 11 (18)
Rnd 13: sc in each st (18)
Rnd 14: [sc 1, invdec] repeat 6 times (12)
Rnd 15: invdec, sc 2, invdec 4 (7)
Rnd 16: invdec, sc 1, invdec, sc 1, sl.st 1 (5)
Cut the yarn and pull through. Sew together

You can post it on Instagram
Thanks for the design, I hope to make some soon! 🙂
I LOOOOOVE this pattern, it was so easy. I’m gonna make some in different colours for my friends. Thank you s much
The reason I am writing this publicly and not through a DM is that it makes me angry and sad at the same time, how these people are treating you right here on your page and spread hateful things all over on facebook about you, because I think you don’t deserve it.
Don’t mind the hate comments Louie, what they are doing to you is totally unfair. They stole your free pattern and tried to make money out of it, you have every right to be upset. You tried to communicate this a civilized way, nothing wrong with that.
I am with you on this. Keep up the good work, I love your patterns, tutorials and ideas very much.
hey lowie it says that you have to sew the horns onto the back and head
This was my first crochet stuffed animal and it was so much fun to make!
