LEFT LEG

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 3-5: sc in each stitch around (12)
Rnd 6: *sc in the next 3 stitches, 2sc* Repeat 3 times (15)

Fasten off.

Left leg, Rnds 1 to 6

RIGHT LEG

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 15 stitches. Working across the ch stitches, sc in the 2 chains. Repeat around the right leg and opposite side of the chain. (34)

This will connect both legs together and form one continuous round for the body.

BODY

Rnd 8: *sc in the next 16 stitches, 2sc* Repeat 2 times (36)
Rnd 9-13: sc in each stitch around (36)
Rnd 14: *sc in the next 10 stitches, invdec* Repeat 3 times (33)
Rnd 15: sc in each stitch around (33)
Rnd 15: *sc in the next 9 stitches, invdec* Repeat 3 times (30)
Rnd 16: *sc in the next 8 stitches, invdec* repeat 3 times (27)
Rnd 17: sc in each stitch around (27)
Rnd 18: *sc in the next 7 stitches, invdec* Repeat 3 times (24)
Rnd 19: sc in each stitch around (24)
Rnd 20: *sc in the next 6 stitches, invdec* Repeat 3 times (21)
Rnd 21: sc in each stitch around (21)
Rnd 22: *sc in the next 5 stitches, invdec* Repeat 3 times (18)

Before continuing with the head, stuff the body. be sure to stuff ride into the sides of the body as this will give him his full, rounded shape.

HEAD

Rnd 23: *sc FLO in the next 2 stitches, 2sc FLO* Repeat 6 times (24)
Rnd 24: *sc in the next 3 stitches, 2sc* Repeat 6 times (30)
Rnd 25: *sc in the next 4 stitches, 2sc* Repeat 6 times (36)
Rnd 26: *sc in the next 5 stitches, 2sc* Repeat 6 times (42)
Rnd 27: *sc in the next 6 stitches, 2sc* Repeat 6 times (48)

Rnd 36: *sc in the next 3 stitches, invdec* Repeat 6 times (24)
Rnd 37: *sc in the next 2 stitches, invdec* Repeat 6 times (18)

If using safety eyes, take the opportunity now to insert them. The eyes are placed between rounds 29 and 30 approx. 7 stitches apart. When you know the eye placement take a single stitch across in black yarn between the two eye holes before inserting the safety eyes. This will complete the eye detailing. Start stuffing the head and continue to stuff as the decrease rounds continue to a close.

Rnd 38: *sc in the next stitch, invdec* Repeat 6 times (12)
Rnd 39: 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.

ARMS (Make 2)

Using white yarn, working in continuous rounds.

Rnd 1: Stitch 6 sc into a magic ring (6)
Rnd 2: 2sc in each stitch around (12)
Rnd 3-5: sc in each stitch around (12)
Rnd 6: *sc in the next 2 stitches, invdec* Repeat 9 times (9)
Rnd 7: *sc in the next stitch, invdec* Repeat 3 times (6)
Rnd 8-9: sc in each stitch around (6)

Fasten off.

ASSEMBLY

Attach the arms to either side of the body. The tops of the arm should be approx. 2 rows below where the body stops and the head begins.

You can play around with the positioning depending on how you want Baymax 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.

And that’s it, Baymax is complete!
