In the process of designing my last pattern (My One Skein Summer Hausfrau House Bra) I stumbled onto Tunisian Crochet without knowing what it was! After doing quite a bit more research, I discovered that Tunisian crochet is actually quite closely related in construction to the chainless foundation technique, which is also used in this design. Even if you are NOT familiar with chainless foundation or Tunisian crochet, this piece is simple enough to assure success. I include links to tutorials with pictures to help out in discerning the different stitches being used. The striped effect is made by using variegated, or 'self-striping' thread which reduces the number of thread ends. The head and border and the bottom of the face may be worked in coordinating solid colors or with the same variegated color. The facial features are then embroidered on with small lengths of other colors. All of the patterns found on Craftsy are available for instant download only. Once you have purchased a pattern it will be immediately added to your Craftsy account where you will have the ability to download it.

~Heritage Heartcraft, heirloom quality thread crochet by Cara Louise Reitbauer~ I have been crocheting since about 1974 at age 8 when my mother taught me with regular yarn and larger crochet hooks. A year or so later, she found a bag that had been her mother's which contained some gorgeous doilies her mother had made, along with some skinny crochet thread and some impossibly small steel crochet hooks. I fell in love on the spot, created my very first doily without any pattern by copying one of hers, using her hooks and her thread. I have been designing and crafting small articles such as doilies, coasters, snowflakes and angels ever since! (Although I do confess to using patterns too!) Every time I make something I feel a kinship with the grandmother I was never able to meet, and so her spirit is alive in me- all these years later, and still use her hooks, which are now over 60 years old! I've got sites all over the web!
