Vest:

You have a few options here.

  1. Crochet a green vest
  2. crochet a green vest, crochet leaves separately and sew onto the vest (this is what I did)
  3.  crochet leaves and then sew the leaves together to form a vest

Regardless of your choice,

I used the Free Crochet Leaf Pattern by Repeat Crafter Me for the leaves.  I made enough to cover the vest well and sewed them with some overlapping.

For the Vest, I used a pattern by Yan Schenkel Animal Friends of Pica Pau: Gather All 20 Colorful Amigurumi Animal Characters (page 63).  It is a super cute book and I highly recommend it!

 

Hair (dark blue)

The hair is made in two parts.  First, you will make a cone that is stuffed and sits onto his head.

Rd 1: ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hk (8)

Rd 2: sc around (8)

Rd 3: (sc, 2sc around) (12)

Rd 4: sc around (12)

Rd 5: (sc in 2, 2sc) around (16)

Rd 6: (sc in 3, 2sc) around (20)

Rd 7: (sc in 4. 2sc) around (24)

Rd 8: (sc in 5, 2sc) around (24)

Rd 9: (sc in 6. 2sc) around (28)

Rd 10: (sc in 7, 2sc) around (32)

Rd 11: (sc in 8, 2sc) around (36)

Rd 12: (sc in 9, 2sc) around (40)

Rd 13: (sc in 10, 2sc) around (44)

Rd 14: (sc in 11, 2sc) around (48)

Rd 15: (sc in 12, 2sc) around (52)

Rd 16: (sc in 13, 2sc) around (56)

Rd 17:( sc in 14, 2sc) around (60)

Rd 18: sc around (60).  Check for size on the head and add or take away rds as desired.  Sl st, FO, stuff and sew onto the head.

Now, for the second part.  You will cut yarn, tie it on the cone, detangle the 4 strands that form each piece of yarn, and brush until they become fuzzy.  This step takes awhile.  You do not have to put hair onto each st.  Just do enough to have the volume of hair you want.

Here is a youtube tutorial by Tawyna Myers to help you on that hair!
