Irish Elf / Leprechaun
Updated: Feb 27
According to fables, Leprechauns are tiny entities that normally take the form of an old man in a red or green coat. They are known to be mischievous little creatures that like to make shoes and store their gold coins in a pot of gold that is hidden at the end of a rainbow. If you happen to capture a Leprechaun, he will give you three wishes provided you let him go.
Her pattern is an easy one, suitable for beginners. I tried to reduce the sewing by making the head and the body to be a single piece. And I will show you a great method to prevent the head from tilting backwards. I call it neck stiffener but if you know a better word to name it please let me know below in the comment section.

¨ This will be a tube-like shape, that needs to be inserted into the neck after the head is filled and most of the body part is already done. Do it as the leg, but it is just 10 Round "tall".
¨ Must be filled very firmly- seeing the filling is not an issue at this point, it is a must :) - if it is done as written it will prevent the head from tilting backwards.
¨ Insert it into the neck after Row 28 - - approximately half of it goes into the head and half of it stays in the body
