Each round is worked in a continuous round unless otherwise stated. 

A stitch marker is recommended for keeping track of your stitches for each round.

Increase means to place 2 stitches in the same stitch from the previous round.

Instructions inside ( ) are to be repeated. 

Key chain can be added by making a loop at the top of the star and attaching the jump ring of the key ring.  I use the same yarn that I weave in my ends in order to create this.


This is a sample of the little cards that I send out with my pocket hugs.


With Yellow (make 2)

Round 1: MR 5SC OR [CH 2 and 5SC in the 1st CH] (5)

Round 2: INC in each ST around. (10)

Round 3: (INC, SC) around. (15)

Round 4: (INC, SC2) around. (20)

On one piece only – Insert safety eyes between rounds 3 and 4, approximately 3 STS apart. Embroider on facial details. 

Round 5: *(HDC, DC, TRDC, HDC) all in the next ST, SK1 ST, SL ST into the next 2 STs. *  Rep * * around. You have made the 5 points of the star

F/O and weave in ends. 

Join both halves together with the wrong sides together. With the piece with the face facing up at you SL ST around the edge to join.  Stuff lightly as you go.

Add optional key chain.
