A fellow crocheter showed me this Chucky doll they made using this scarecrow pattern! All she did was use different colors in the color changes, and add orange hair.

Supplies:
• Yarn 4/Medium Weight Yarn in…
Brown, Yellow, Light Blue, Dark Blue, Green, Red, Cream, Black, and Orange
• 4mm Crochet Hook
•12mm safety eyes for Scarecrow
•6mm safety eyes for bird
•Tapestry needle
•Scissors
•Stuffing
•Foam roller or dowel (optional) This is recommended for the neck to strand firm

Additional Information:
Difficulty: Experienced

• Size
This scarecrow measures 17″ from the shoes to the tip of the hat. This pattern is pretty big and takes time, but it’s well worth it!

• Getting started
We start with the legs and crochet them together, which then forms the body and head. All are one piece. We then make the face, arms, overalls, hay, and a cute crow buddy!

Feet: (Make 2)

In Brown

To start the scarecrow we first create his feet. The foot then leads into the leg. We make one more foot that leads into the leg and crochet both legs together. This forms the bottom of the hips, then leads into the body, and the head. The legs to the head are all one continuous piece.

Make one leg first, then create the second leg

Round 28 will be different depending on if you’re making the first or second leg. I provide the first leg round 28 on this page and second leg round 28 on the next page.
Round 28, First leg: *Sc* all around (25)
Finish off first leg here, and don’t remove the stitch marker from this first leg.

If you’re making the second leg, continue on the next page for Round 28, Second leg.

Connecting the legs

In this next round we’re going to connect the legs together. Once the legs are connected, we will start working on the body! Note to add a stitch marker to the first stitch made in this “Round 28 , Second Leg” round.

Round 28, Second Leg: Sc in the next 3 st (Pic 1). Take the first leg made and count 6 st BEFORE the st marker (Pic 2). Line up that 6th st to the next st of the second leg. Insert hook under BOTH stitches and Sc in that st (Pic 3-9).

Continuing under BOTH stitches, Sc in the next 3 st (Pic 10). Continuing back on the second leg made (Pic 11), Sc in the next 18 st (Pic 12). You can now remove the old stitch marker from the first leg.
(Stitch count: 4 st connecting the legs, 21 st on each leg) Stuff each leg here.

Head

Now we’re making the head. If you’d like the head to be firm, place a foam roller or wooden dowel into the doll’s neck now to keep it stable. I would highly recommend this so it’s head won’t be floppy.

Hay:

Now we will add hay straws to the yellow parts of the scarecrow. In rounds where we did a single yellow round is where we will add hay. Note that we will also add hay under the hat where we didn’t do a yellow round.

Cut lots of ~5″/13cm yellow strands (Pic 1). Insert hook into a yellow round of the legs (Pic 2), arms, or neck (examples of how on the next page) Pull a yellow strand of yarn through (Pic 3-5).

Where to insert crochet hook for hay

In the rounds where we did one single round in yellow, insert your hook into that round to make the hay.

Arm

Here is how it should look when you insert your hook into the yellow round of the arm. To add hay simply refer to the process in the previous page. Note, I hardly trimmed the hay in the arms but you can trim the hay quite a bit if you prefer.

Neck

Here is how it should look when you insert your hook into the yellow round of the neck. I trimmed the neck hay.

Head Hay

Lift up the hat (Pic 1). Right under the hat insert your hook (Pic 2). Repeat the hay process. Cut the hair where it’s in front of the face (Pic 3).
