F/O leaving long tail. Weave tail down thru center of leaf to other end using yarn needle. If you want a pronounced vein down the center of the leaf, you can backstitch down the center of the leaf instead of weaving it.

Body(Use f hook):

To crochet around body, use brown and ch 2, sc 4. sc around.

Eyes(Use f hook):


Ch 2, sc 4, sl st in first stitch. Fasten off leave tail to sew to the head

Use white yarn to make light catches in eyes by whip stitching them on,


To make the frame for the body I cut about 90 inches of galvanized utility wire-14 gauge.  I used a pair of pliers to bend them into the shape I wanted.  I Bent it in half and had it go through the back of the head.  I then twisted each end into the toes and had them come back around and wrap around the body.  To start crocheting around the body pick an outside toe on either leg and crochet around, then around the body, then just crochet little “socks” and slip them onto the toes and sew them on.  Before you get to the head, push the wire in as deep are you want the sew the body to the head.  This will stabilize it.
