Alphablock U - FREE PATTERN

 

Free pattern for the Alphablock U. Compare with the Alphablock X to get the idea how to join the sides of the Alphablock (I join the sides with slip stitches). The technique is quite similar.  Subscribe my blog and YouTube.

Then crochet the VISOR x 2 (cut the piece of felt to put inside the visor to stiffen):

I joined two parts of the visors with sl stitches and sewed the felt to the visors to keep it in place.

Pin the cap before sewing and stuff before you close the opening.

Sew the limbs to the body, the letter U and embroider the face detail.
 

Alphablock U is finished :)
