Finished Size:

Special Stitch Instructions:

Most pieces begin with a “ring”. Use any type of ring you are comfortable with (i.e. Magic Circle, chain 2 and single crochet in second chain, etc.). You’ll be working in one continuous spiral, unless otherwise noted.

The use of a marker is very useful if you’re not used to working in continuous rounds. It’s also great if you have to stop midway.

    Hi! I really love this pattern and I’m super excited to start it, but I was reading through it, and it says that the head and body are different units, but the pictures look as if they are one and the same. I was curious if they were.. I’m sorry to be a bother, but I really want to make sure everything is perfect when I start this project. I love link and I love his deku form. Thank you so much

    Hi! This is a really cute pattern!! I’d like to make one of these to donate to a charity event, but wanted to ask you if it would be ok to use your pattern for this purpose. I would be more than happy to credit you for the pattern if you would like, and would not be making any money from it whatsoever. It is totally ok if you’d prefer I didn’t (I’ll make one for just myself in that case ), please just let me know either way
    Thanks so much; looking forward to starting on this little guy~
