(make 2)

use green colored yarn

start with ch18


you can work sole and foot in rows, starting each round with ch1, and ending with slip stitch in this first chain made.

I decided to work this way to keep rounds nice and even (and was easier for me to count the stitches); spiral started to work at round 17.

Try and see which way suits you better or you prefer to work with.

If you decide to work in rounds, don’t forget to chain 1 at the beginning of each round and slip stitch at the end to finish the round. Chain and slip stitch are not mentioned in the pattern.

R1 sc16, 3sc in the last chain stitch, continue working around chain, sc15, 2sc in the last stitch on this side of chain (if you don’t know how to make an oval from chain, look at the photo you can find at the last page of this pattern) 36

Shorter arm

Make fingers following the pattern given above.

Then repeat the working finger/hand pattern all the way through R13.

From R13, instead of 25 repeating rounds, on shorter arm make them just 20

Your last round count and the pattern will look like this:

R13-R32 sc9

fasten off leaving long tail for sewing arm to the body later.

Left arm

Make fingers as written for the right arm patterns. Follow the pattern until you reach R8 & R9 of the hand making (where thumb is added).

Only two rounds are different!!!!

Once you finish them, return to right arm pattern and follow further directions.

R8 sc6, bring thumb and sc2, working through both, thumb and hand sts, sc4

R9 sc6, sc2 over thumb only, sc4 continue with the rest of the pattern. Repeat this for both left arms.

Following photo shows you how arms are sewed on the body. Sew longer arm two rounds below neck connection. Shorter one is placed 4 rounds lower.

Fasten off, hide ends.

Stuff the hat lightly, and sew it on top of the head.

Change color to black

change color to brown


Use the drawing to match size, copy and trace on your Flip. Eyes should not exceed the height of 8 rounds.

First color the base with white. When dried trace the iris and color it in green.

After green color has dried, use black to color the pupils and eye outline.

At the end you can add white sparks.

Sewing mouth
I like this method on adding mouth on my dolls. It is tired out many times by now, dolls have been played with for many hours. Dolls have been machine washed and mouth stayed in place.

I warmly recommend you to try it. It works great on cotton (haven’t tried on acrylic or any other yarn).

Pin where you wish your mouth to be placed. I really didn’t count rounds. Wanted my Flip to have a smile and that was my lead when making it.

As you can see, you’ll need three pins. Outer ones, mouth corners and middle one will determine the depth of your smile.

Try to place outer pins parallel with outer eye edges.

Bottom (middle) pin place centered below, as many rounds as you like or wish your smile to be deep.

Then simply, using darning cotton needle (long one) and black yarn push the needle from one side pin to another. Wrap around the lower, centered pin, and repeat one more time.

Leave ends on both sides.

Cut them short on about 1 cm (½ inch).

Add glue to stitches where yarn it sticking out (cut pieces), add some glue under the mouth line.

Using tooth pick, stick the excess yarn inside the head, and push lightly the mouth yarn onto the head.

Let it dry completely.

On the last photo you can see glue showing, but when it dries out, will be almost invisible.

Mouth will remain firm and nicely stick to the head, and very, very durable!

If your Flip is not sewed by now, sew him up and let’s play!
