AvoCATo Pattern

Made with worsted weight yarn, the finished doll measures approximately 7 inches tall with the ears.

Abbreviations:

ch: chain

sc: single crochet

sl st: slip stitch

inc: increase (2 single crochets in one loop)

dec: decrease (pull yarn through loop, pull yarn through second loop, yarn over and pull through all loops)

Materials needed (with affiliate links):

Any worsted weight yarn. I used Red Heart Super Saver in medium thyme and café latte and Impeccable in citron. I also used a little bit of pink yarn.

G (4mm) crochet hook

Poly-fil

Yarn needle

15mm safety eyes

Black embroidery thread

This pattern is worked “in-the-round”, and stitches are worked through both loops unless otherwise noted.
