The pattern is in English and includes both written instructions and pictures to help walk you through the process. It's a pretty simple amigurumi, but is designed for intermediate level crocheters (those with a bit of crochet experience) since it does use techniques like the magic circle (you can find a great tutorial on Planet June if you're not already familiar with the magic circle). As a bonus, this pattern also includes a step-by-step photo-tutorial on the invisible decrease to help make your amigurumi neater.
I've heard so many great ideas for using this little doodlebug, from dressing him up in holiday outfits, to making him into a rattle or a lovey, to turning him into your new crochet buddy. So if you make one of your own, I'd love to hear about it! How did you customize yours? What's your doodlebug's job? Contact me in the comment section below or on social media (check out my contact page for the links). And, of course, if you have any difficulties with the pattern please let me know and I'll do my best to help you out. Happy hooking!
