    and close it with 1-2 stitches.
    dungarees with suspender:
    If you want them to be close fitting to the body, choose hooksize as mentioned on page 2. If you want them to fit more loosely, go half a hs up.

The dungarees are crocheted in rounds from the top (belly) to the bottom.
Crochet 42 ch and close them to a ring with a sl st into the first ch (pict. 5).
rd1: 1 ch (counts as the first stitch), 41 sc.
Continue to crochet in spiral rounds.
rd2-9: 42 sc (pict. 6)

1st leg of the pants:
rd1: visualize a ring from the outermost 21 sc from the dungarees ring (pict. 7 and 8). Join with 1 sc
to close it to form a ring. Crochet 20 sc. (21 sc)
rd2: 21 sc

Finish the work with a sl st and sew the yarn carefully.
2nd leg of the pants:
rd1:Make 1 standing sc into the left free hole of the pants. Crochet 20 sc. (21sc)
rd2: 21 sc
Finish the work with a sl st and sew the yarn carefully.
There is a hole between the two pant legs, close them with the yarn with 1-2 stitches.

Suspenders:
Crochet 28-30 ch and sew it on the side of the dungarees on the front and on the back.
Additionally, you can sew a little button where the suspenders start. If you crochet Pumpkin for a
child under 3, I would recommend to leave the button due the risk of choking hazard.

assembling and finishing the details:
Sew the head carefully onto the body.
Sew the arms left and right onto the body
directly under the head.Sew the ears onto the top of the head between rd 4 and 5.

Sew the legs at the right and the left side of the body between rd 9 and 10.

To get the legs tight against the body, push the top third part of the leg flat onto the body and sew it
on (as seen on the pictures 12 – 15).

Sculpting the face:
After the head is finished and filled with polyfiber, you can now push the eyes towards the inside of
the head. Take a sharp tapestry needle and the tearproof yarn. Pull the thread on the left and the right
of the eye into the head (pict. 19 and 20) and bring the two thread ends out at the bottom of the head
opening (pict. 21).

Pull firmly on both ends of the thread (pict. 22) and you can see how the eyes will be pushed inwards.
Make a knot of the two threads. Repeat these steps for the second eye. Knot all 4 thread ends.

When finished modeling the eyes, you can add the white part of the eyes. Take a long white yarn and a
very sharp needle. At the outer part of the eyes, make 1 vertical stitch. Again, knot the thread ends at
the bottom of the head.

Add the little pink nose between the eyes, at the same level as the bottom line of the eyes. Take the
pink yarn and embroider the nose two stitches long several times using a horizontal line. Additionally,
make a vertical line from the middle of the nose 2 rounds down.

Similar to the eyes you can also sculpt a small mouth. Take a long thread of the main body colour and
push the sharp tapestry needle into the head, approximately 2 rounds below the nose and bring the
thread out at the bottom of the head opening. Make the same procedure with the second end of the
thread. Pull firmly on both ends, so that the stitch will be pushed inwards. Make a knot of both thread
ends.

Embroider the brown eyebrows 2 rounds above the eyes.
Add some cute rosey cheeks with a light pink blush or a crayon
