Let’s Get Started!
Using coral pink yarn, working in continuous rounds
Rnd 1 : Ch4. Working into the 2nd ch from the hook, sc in the first 2 stitches. Work 3sc in the final stitch turning as the 3rd stitch is work. Working back down the opposite side of the starting chain, sc in the next stitch, 2sc in the last stitch (8)
Rnd 2 : 2sc in the first stitch, sc in the next 2, 2sc in the next 2 stitches, sc in the next 2 stitches, 2sc in the last stitch (12)
Rnd 3: sc in each stitch around (12)
Rnd 4: sc in the first 4 stitches, sc2tog for the next 2 stitches, sc in the last 4 stitches (10)
Rnd 5: sc in the first 3 stitches, sc2tog for the next 2 stitches, sc in the last 3 stitches (8)
Rnd 6: sc in each stitch around
Left leg, Rnds 1 to 6
Repeat as per left leg for Rnds 1-6 and then, instead of fastening off, move on to Rnd 7.
Rnd 7: Ch2. Insert the hook into the left leg. Working around the left leg, sc in all 8 stitches. Working across the ch stitches, sc in the 2 chains. Repeat around the right leg and opposite side of the chain. (20)
This will connect both legs together and form one continuous round for the body. Since the legs are attached across the back of the legs, the feet will point slightly outwards.
The starting point for the following rounds will be towards the front of the body.
Rnd 8: *sc in the next 4 stitches, 2sc* Repeat 4 times (24)
Rnd 9: *sc in the next 3 stitches, 2sc* Repeat 6 times (30)
Rnd 10: *sc in the next 4 stitches, 2sc* Repeat 6 times (36)
Stuff down into the feet of the legs before continuing
Rnd 11-21: sc in each stitch around (36)
Rnd 22: *sc in the next 10 stitches, invdec* Repeat 3 times (33)
Rnd 23: *sc in the next 9 stitches, invdec* repeat 3 times (30)
Rnd 24: *sc in the next 8 stitches, invdec* Repeat 3 times (27)
Rnd 25: *sc in the next 7 stitches, invdec* Repeat 3 times (24)
Rnd 26: *sc in the next 6 stitches, invdec* Repeat 3 times (21)
Before continuing stuff the body and continue to stuff as you continue to decrease. Be sure to stuff right into the sides of the body as this will give him his full, rounded shape.
Rnd 27: *sc in the next 5 stitches, invdec* Repeat 3 times (18)
Rnd 28: *sc in the next stitch, invdec* Repeat 6 times (12)
Rnd 29: invdec in each stitch around (6)
Fasten off leaving a long tail. Using a yarn needle, weave the tail end through the front loops of the last Rnd of stitches and pull tight to close. Fasten off and weave in the ends.
Using white yarn, working in continuous rounds
Rnd 1: Stitch 6sc into a magic ring (6)
Rnd 2: 2sc in each stitch around (12)
Rnd 3: *sc in next stitch, 2sc* Repeat 6 times (18)
Slip st into the first st of Rnd # and switch to coral pink yarn
Rnd 4 *slip st in next 2 stitches, 2slip st* Repeat 6 times (24)
Using black yarn or scraps of felt, create the two eyes.
ARMS (Make 2)
Using coral pink yarn, working in continuous rounds.
Rnd 1: Stitch 4 sc into a magic ring (4)
Rnd 2: *sc in next stitch, 2sc* Repeat 2 times (6)
Rnd 3: sc in each stitch around (6)
To create the thumb : Ch2. Working into the 2nd ch from the hook, slip st in remaining stitch
Continue on to Rnd 4 ignoring the thumb stitches
Rnd 4-9: sc in each stitch around (6)
Using yellow yarn, working in rows. Ch1 and turn at the end of each row.
Rnd 1: Ch22 stitches. Working into the 2nd ch stitch from the hook, sc in each stitch along (21)
Rnd 2: *sc in the first stitch, dc in the 2nd and ch2, slipst in the third stitch* Repeat 7 times (21)
Fasten off leaving a long tail.
Each of the repeats in Rnd 2 should create a strip with 7 points for the crown. Using the tail end yarn, whip stitch the two ends of the strip together to form the crown shape.
Attach the face to the top-centre of the body.
Attach the arms to either side of the body. The tops of the arms should be roughly in line with the bottom of the face. You can play around with the positioning depending on how you want your Fall Guy posed.
In the photos the arms are not stuffed as they still hold their shape when hollow, but if you want a fuller, rounded look, consider stuffing the bottom half of the arms. It’s better to only stuff around half way up otherwise it can make sewing to the body more difficult.
Fit his crown to his head, or leave it loose.
And that’s it, your Fall Guy is finished and ready to fail!
