Smurf Free Crochet Pattern!!

Last week I went and saw the new Smurf movie.  So cute!!  As I was watching the movie my brain was already calculating how I would design a crochet pattern of my own cute little Smurf.  This is what I came up with.  Hope you enjoy it!!  My niece has requested Smurfette so I hope she will be joining Clumsy soon!

Connect ear with the highest point between 5th and 6th rows

Hat (white)
Rnd 1: Ch 33, sl st in 1st ch to form ring
Rnd 2-3: sc around (32)

Finishing: Weave end of yarn through each stitch of Round 17 and pull closed.  Stuff tip of hat lightly, fold over in front and attach to rnd 6.  Stuff the rest of hat lightly before attaching to head.  Tuck rnd 1 under slightly and sew hat to head (the tucked part should connect to head just above eyebrows to make hat poke out a bit from the forehead.  Rnd 1 of back part of hat can be connected directly to head without tucking).

Rnd 1: 6 sc in mc (6)

Rnd 3: inc around (12)

Leg #1 (continuing with white)
Rnd 1: sk 8 sc of rnd 11 of body, sl st in 9th st, ch 1, turn
Rnd 2: sc 9 (9)
Rnd 3-4: sc around leg (11)
Rnd 5: (sc, dec) 3 times, sc in last 2 sc (8)
Rnd 6: sc, inc in next 3 st, sl st in next 4 st (11)
Rnd 7: sl st in next 2 st, inc in next 4 st, sl st in next 5 st (15)
Rnd 8: sl st in next 5 st, inc in next 5 st, sl st in next 5 st (20)
Rnd 9: sc around (20)
Rnd 10: (in back loop only) dec around (10)
Finishing: Stuff body, leg and foot completely.  Whip stitch foot closed from one side to the other.  This will make the foot longer rather than wider to match the general shape of a smurf foot.  Finish off and weave extra yarn into leg.

Leg #2 (white)
Rnd 1: connect yarn to middle front of body with loop.  Ch 1, sc 9 around
Rnd 2: sl st in st of other leg, ch 1,

Rnd 4: sk 1 st, sc around (11)
Rnd 5-10: same as rnds 5-10 of Leg #1
Finishing: Stuff body, leg and foot completely.  Whip stitch foot closed from one side to the other.  This will make the foot longer rather than wider to match the general shape of a smurf foot.  Finish off and weave extra yarn into leg.

Rnd 2: sc around (8)

Rnd 4-7: sc around (6)
Rnd 8: inc around (12)
Rnd 9: sl st, tr st, sl st, sc in next 9 st (12)
Rnd 10: (dec every other) 4 times (8)
Rnd 11: dec around (4)
Finishing: whip stitch fingertip end closed.  Pull yarn through hand to wrist, stopping to add a stitch which closes area between thumb and fingers.  Stuff lightly.  Use remaining yarn to attach arm to body in desired position.

Tail (turqua)
Rnd 1: 4 sc in mc (4)
Rnd 2: inc every other (6)
Rnd 3: sc around (6)
Finishing: finish off, attach to backside (It is attached just below the waistline of pants)

Adjustments:
~ Sew mouth on with black yarn
~ Take length of blue.  Hook to quilter’s needle with knot at end.  Sew one stitch through bottom of nost to just between eyes to make the nose point slightly upward.
~ Optional: sew black eyebrows.
