Assembly

Eyes, Mouth, and Fangs

First thing’s first! We need to attach all of our facial features to the front panel.

The first thing I did was insert 12mm safety eyes about 9 rows up from the bottom of the head.

Stitch on the mouth using black crochet thread.

Finally, using light weight red yarn, stitch on two little fangs at each end of the mouth in a triangle shape.


Body

Place the two body panels together, matching up all sides and colours. Starting on the left side of the head, begin attaching the panels together by chaining one and single crocheting around the outside of the panels starting in Black. As you crochet along the outside, you will need to switch colours where appropriate. When switching colours, insert your hook into the last stitch of Colour A. Pull up a loop in Colour A. Then Yarn over in Colour B to complete the stitch. Continue with Colour B until you need to switch again. Continue crocheting all around the cape in purple, switching to Black at the feet, and then back to purple, and then back to black for the head. Stop a few stitches from the top of the head. Stuff the body. Continue crocheting around. Top up stuffing. Close with a slst to first st. Tie off. With your tapestry needle, poke the yarn tail back inside the piece.


Finishing Touches

Insert your tapestry needle behind Eye A. Exit the needle from behind Eye B. Reinsert the needle into a different stitch behind Eye B. Exit the needle out the back of your Vampire’s head. Thread the yarn tail from Eye A into your needle. Reinsert your needle into a different stitch behind Eye A. Exit your needle out the same stitch in the back of your Vampire’s head. Gently tug on both yarn tails to create the sculpting. Tie a knot in the yarn tails and poke back inside the piece.
