LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY
Intermediate — assumes a working knowledge of crochet and experience reading patterns. Also includes some fiddly bits and a whole lot of hand stitching (sorry).

STITCHES & SKILLS – UK TERMS (BUT US-FRIENDLY)
• Magic circle
• Double crochet (US = single) in a continuous spiral
• Half treble (US = half double) and treble (US = double)
• Increase and invisible decrease
• Back loops only — diagram provided
• Colour change — tutorial provided
• Slip stitch seam — tutorial provided

WHAT YOU NEED
• 3mm (UK11/USC) crochet hook
• Yarn: I used 8ply/DK cotton, but you could use wool or acrylic too
• Stitch marker
• 6mm safety eyes (I used black but go for blue if you want to be strictly accurate)
• Tapestry needle, scissors and some pins — a slightly sharper needle is also helpful for his hair
• Polyester stuffing
• Sheet of thin plastic (e.g. the lid from a plastic ice cream tub)

PATTERN INFO
* This Instant Download PDF pattern is written in UK terms, but in a US-friendly way. It contains all the information you need, with plenty of photos and step-by-step photos of the fiddly bits.

This pattern looks incredibly detailed and easy to follow; I haven't attempted it yet but I'm looking forward to it. Living in the US, I can't escape the orange beast, so I bought this pattern to make something to help ease my frustration!

First, in case you're hesitant to purchase because you aren't sure of the quality of the pattern writing... CLICK the buy button. This pattern is written beautifully. I could follow it without any problems. VERY well written and easy to comprehend. And the end result? Awesome. Made this for a friend. Already have others requesting one. Doesn't take much yarn, so I sense a troop of Trumps coming off my hook. :)
