How to read the pattern:


Lets take row 3 from the wing part. It says: 2sl st, 1sc, inc, 2sc, 1sl st (8) It means you make 2 sl st in the first sc, then 1sc in the next sc, 2sc in the next sc, 1sc in each of the next 2sc, and finally 1 sl st in the last st. You should have a total of 8sts in that row. Please, check out the abbreviations box, too.

with light pink or tan ch3 1sc in the 2nd ch from the hook, [2sc, ch2, (1sc, ch2)x2, 2sc] in the next ch, 1sc on the other side of the 2nd ch (where you made the first sc), ch8, 1sl st in the 2nd ch from the hook, 2sl st, inc, 3sl st, join to the first sc. FO, leaving the long piece of thread for sewing. Sew the legs to the body. And youre done!

Note!
His legs are dangly and wonky (as he was designed for a baby mobile). If youre not happy with such a result and would prefer them to behave, you can try killing the acrylic technique to give them more defined shape, but he still wont be able to stand on them.
