Kuchi Kopi


My own little Kuchi Kopi from Bob's Burgers!  Once again this is a case of not being able to find an existing pattern for something I want to make so I made it a quick little weekend project of it.

Here's a little pattern so you can make one too! (Let me know if you find any mistakes.)

Yarns used:
  • for the body: Sugar 'n Cream Hot Green (hook size F/5 3.75mm)
  • for the eyes: Patons Grace Snow (steel hook #1 2.75mm)
  • for the bow tie: Patons Grace Aquifer (steel hook #1 2.75mm)
You'll also need 2 black seed beads for the eyes and some stuffing.  I used poly-fil.

The body is worked from the bottom up and the head is worked from the top down and the two pieces are seamed in the middle.  (Leave a long tail on either the head or body for sewing.)  The seam is then hidden by the string for the bow tie.

Pattern:

Body: (Work by joining rows for the flat bottom and then in continuous rounds for the rest.)
  1. 6 sc in magic ring. Slip to first sc. (6)
  2. Chain 1, 2 sc in each stitch. Slip to first sc. (12)
  3. Chain 1.  Sc, inc around.  Slip to first sc. (18)
  4. Chain 1, 2 sc, inc around. Slip to first sc. (24)
  5. Chain 1, sc in each stitch around in the back loop only. Don't slip to the first stitch, from here you will work continuously around. (24)
  6. Sc 5, inc around (28)
  7. Sc 6, inc around (32)
  8. Sc 7, inc around (36)
  9. Sc around (36)
  10. Sc around (36)
  11. Sc 4, decrease around (30)
  12. Sc 3, decrease around (24)
  13. Sc around.  Slip to the first sc.  There will be a bumpy edge that you will match up with the bump in the head. (24)
Head: (Work in continuous rounds.)
  1. 6 sc in magic ring. (6)
  2. Inc around (12)
  3. Sc, inc around (18)
  4. 2 sc, inc around (24)
  5. 3 sc, inc around (30)
  6. Sc around (30)
  7. Sc around (30)
  8. Sc around (30)
  9. Sc around (30)
  10. Sc around (30)
  11. Sc 3, decrease around (24)
  12. Sc around (24)
Stuff the body and head and use the tails to sew the two together.  They should meet nicely where the bumps line up.  Sew about 3/4 the way around and stuff more stuffing in to get the correct amount.

Ears: (Make two)
  1. 4 sc in magic ring. Slip to first sc. (4)
  2. Chain 1, 2 sc in each stitch.  Slip to first sc. (8)
  3. Chain 1, sc around.  Slip to first sc. (8)
Leave a long tail and sew the pieces together at the bottom so they have a flat edge to attach to the head. (Don't stuff.)

Arms: (Make two)
  1. 4 sc in magic ring (4)
  2. Inc around (8)
  3. Sc around (8)
  4. Sc around (8)
  5. 2 sc, dec around (6)
  6. Sc around (6)
Leave a long tail and sew the pieces together at the top so they have a flat edge to attach to the body, just below the bow tie.  (Don't stuff.)  I also sewed the arms so they lie flat to the body.

Eyes: (Make two, working in a continuous spiral)
  1. 6sc in magic ring (6)
  2. Inc around (12)
  3. Sc, inc around, slip to first sc. (18)
With sewing thread, attach a black seed bead to the center of the eye.

Bow tie: (Make a long chain that spans the neck of the doll, then slip into each stitch back to make the string.  Then make and attach the bow tie.)
  1. Chain 2, sc in the first chain. (1)
  2. Chain 1 and turn. 2 sc in the sc from row 1. (2)
  3. Chain 1 and turn. 2 sc in the first, 1 sc in the next. (3)
  4. Chain 1 and turn. 2 sc in the first, sc in the next 2 (4)
  5. Chain 1 and turn. Sc across. (4)
  6. Chain 1 and turn. Dec the first two stitches, sc in the next 2 (3)
  7. Chain 1 and turn. Dec the first two stitches, sc in the next (2)
  8. Chain 1 and turn. Dec the two stitches. (1)
  9. Chain 1 and turn. Sc 1 (1)
  10. - 16. Repeat rows 2 thru 8.
Use the starting tail and the end tail to tie the ends together.  Wrap the ends of the tail around the middle in the thin part to form the bow tie and knot twice on the back side.  Sew the bow tie to the string and attach the string to the doll.

Finishing touch: I like to add a row of slip stitches to the bottom of the doll on the loops that stick out from working in the back loops only.  This acts as a stand so it doesn't tip over as easily.
