Just in time for fall, Suzie is here. She is a 15" scarecrow doll, with a little straw stuffing. Pattern is avaibale here: http://apdesigns.etsy.com/ and https://www.ravelry.com/
This is an extensive 15-page pattern, with step-by-step directions, how-to photos, and a tutorial on hair construction. Basic crochet skills needed.
Because of the straw, this pattern may not be suitable for small children.
