** Start stuffing the leg around Rnd 23, right up to approx. a cm above the last white

stripe of the sock. You will not stuff the remainder of the leg, since it is supposed to be

‘floppy, wobbly’ so it ‘falls’ nicely when you put your Jacky onto the edge of a

cupboard, on the mantelpiece or on the windowsill and the legs won’t stick straight

out !

Fasten off and weave in ends of the first leg after R45.

Do not fasten off the second leg. Instead, you will Ch 3 after R45, attach this Ch onto

the first leg with a SC and SC around the perimeter of the leg. Ch3 after this Rnd as

well, proceeding to attach this Ch3 with SC onto the first leg as well (36 SC)

Now, you will continue with the rest of …

R17. SC8, SC Dec, SC13, SC Dec, SC4 (26)

Leave the body for now. We will start on the skirt

I begin working on the skirt at this point, because the body isn’t stuffed yet, so it’s

easier to manipulate. I fasten off the body part, and re-attach later, because the

yarn end with the skein tends to twist and turn and get tangled when I’m working on

the skirt, and this bothers me. However, if you’re ok with it, by all means, leave it as is,

so you can pick your yarn up later.

Position the body, its opening facing you, legs pointing upward. Attach white yarn

into the loops of R14.

The Skirt :

Fasten Off, weave in ends

Sew the crotch shit and stuff the body. You will be stuffing the rest of the body as you

go. You will not stuff the neck, a special part will be made for support purposes ,

which I call the ‘sausage’

Proceed with making the body ;

R25 – R28. SC12 around (12)

Now for the head. Do not fasten off, but continue onwards from R28 as follows ;

The Head :

R29. (SC1, SC Inc)x 6 (18)

R30. (SC2, SC Inc)x 6 (24)

R31. (SC3, SC Inc)x 6 (30)

R32. (SC4, SC Inc)x 6 (36)

R33. (SC5, SC Inc)x 6 (42)

R34. (SC6, SC Inc)x 6 (48)

R35 – R43. SC 48 around ** (48)

** place a stitch marker in between row 39 and row 40, you will attach your safety

eyes here later.

When I start decreasing i the head part, I tend to change the colour from skin colour

to white, this allows me to determine the positioning of the hair more accurately later

on. This is a personal preference of course, and if you prefer continuing in skin colour,

please feel free to do so !

R44. (SC6, SC Dec)x 6 (42)

R45. (SC5, SC Dec)x 6 (36)

R46. (SC4, SC Dec)x 6 (32)

R47. (SC6, SC Dec)x 6 (24)

The Sausage :

Before you continue Decreasing, you will make the ‘sausage’ for the neck part.

Starting with skin colour ;

SC 5 into MC

R1. (SC Inc) around (10)

R2 – R14. SC10 around (10)

Stuff firmly, it is important that the sausage be firm to be able to support the neck, so

don’t skimp on the Fiberfil ! 😊

Place the sausage in the neck, making sure it covers it and that the bottom part of

the sausage meets the body. ( you can gentle squeeze the body to feel where it

should go)

The Eyes and the Nose :

Attach the safety eyes in between R 11 & R 12 of the head, leaving a space of about

8 stitches in between them.

If you do this at this point, you can still easily add eyelashes to the eyes before

securing them, because the stitches can still be easily reached with your needle.

I usually use a piece of black 4ply cotton thread, of which I remove two strands. You

can also use embroidery thread if you have this, and glue on some fake lashes,

whichever you prefer.

Now, create a nose with the skin coloured yarn , one row down and in between the

eyes. Make two stitches over the width of 2 v-stitches (SC’s)).

Stuffing the Head :

In order for the head to have a nice, round and even shape, without lumps or

bumps, it is key to stuff it with care.

I proceed as follows ;

Put four fingers into the head, carefully stretching the fabric of the bottom part with

your index finger and your middle finger. Don’t stretch your crochet work out too

much, though ! Take some Fiberfil, pry it open, gently place it across the bottom of

the head, repeat, working in layers as it were and making sure to carefully line all the

sides as well. The middle part is left unfilled for now, so it should look a bit like a donut.

You stuff the middle in the end of the stuffing process, this when the sides are all

lined, this is for an even result, without lumps, from the bottom up, all the way to the

top.

You can give the cheeks a flush of colour, or even make a freckle or two ?

I use light pink blush and apply it with an eyeshadow brush. Dip the brush into the

blush, swipe over a paper towel to remove the excess and apply carefully. Less is

more, so apply carefully, you can always add more if need be. If you apply too

much, you won’t be able to correct it anymore, so I urge you to be vigilant !

Proceed with closing the head ;

R48. (SC2, SC Dec)x 6 (18)

R49. (SC1, SC Dec)x 6 (12)

Fasten off, weave in ends.

The Arms :

(Make two)

With skin colour ;

R 1. SC 5 into MC (5)

R 2. (SC Inc)x 5 (10)

R 3 – R6. SC 10 around (10)

! Change to silver

R 7 – R 30. SC 10 around ** (10)

** Start stuffing when you’ve arrived at approx. Rnd 12.

You will not stuff the rest of the arm, just like the legs aren’t stuffed completely . This is

to ensure the arms from falling/hanging nicely at the sides of the body.

Pinch the arm together and crochet together two by two stitches. (4)

Attach both arms onto the body at approx. the height of the neck, right where the

colour changes from skin colour to silver.

Ribbing/Brim for the neck :

This part of the pattern is crocheted in rows, not in a spiral.

The finished piece should look like a small rectangle.

With silver ;

R1. Ch 8, SC into 2nd from hook, SC6, tCh (7)

R2 – R 22. SC7 , tCh around for 21 rows (7)

Fasten off. Leave a long tail for sewing.

Depending on how firmly you’ve stuffed the body, you might need to make a row or

two extra here.

Fold in two and sew shut at the ‘short’ sides. Place onto the colour change of the

neck part (silver to skin colour), with the fold facing up.

Because it can be a bit of a challenge to attach this part, I always pin it into place

first. I also press the arms down to the sides of the body, in order to make it easier to

wrap the ribbing around the neck. Sew together the two short sides of your

rectangle, creating a seam, which should be positioned at back of the neck. Secure

the ribbing onto the body with a few strategically placed stitches. Be careful not to

pull your stitches too tough, or you will get an uneven, ‘bumpy’ result !

The Ribbing for the Sleeves/Arms :

(Make two)

This part of the pattern is crocheted in rows, not in a spiral.

The finished piece should look like a small rectangle.

With silver ;

R1. Ch 8, SC into 2nd from hook, SC 6, tch (7)

R2 – R 17. SC7 , tCh around (7)

Fasten off. Leave a long tail for sewing.

You might also need a row or two more here, again depending on how firmly the

arms have been stuffed. Fold over the finished piece, sew close on the shortest sides,

pin into place and attach to the arm where the colour changes from silver to skin

colour, the fold facing down. Sew both short sides together, creating a seam. Secure

with a few stitches, making sure your seam faces the back of the arm. Again, do not

pull too hard on the stitches here, so you don’t get any ‘lumps’, and the ribbing stays

nice and even.

The Socks :

(Make two)

This part of the pattern is crocheted in rows, not in a spiral.

The finished piece should look like a small rectangle.

With white ;

R1. Ch 8, SC into 2nd from hook, SC6, tCh (7)

R2 – R 19. SC7, tCh around (7)

Fasten off. Leave a long tail for sewing.

Depending on how firmly you’ve stuffed the body, you might need to make a row or

two extra here.

Fold in two and sew shut at the ‘short’ sides. Place onto the colour change, with the

fold facing up.

Pin into place. Sew together the two short sides of your rectangle, creating a seam,

which should be positioned at the back of the leg. Secure the ribbing onto the leg

with a few strategically placed stitches. Be careful not to pull your stitches too tough,

or you will get an uneven, ‘bumpy’ result !

Assembly for Leg & Shoe :

Now it’s time to put some shoes on !

You will attach the leg to the shoe, using the tail of the Supersoft yarn you’ve left out

before. First, work the yarn tail up to the middle of the ribbing. Next, unfold , place

the leg into the opening and carefully guide your yarn tail through the shoe and

through the leg and back again, thus securing the shoe onto the leg. Don’t pull too

tightly on your stitches and make sure the toes of shoes are pointing forward ! These

stitches should be made at about mid-height, right where you’ve just worked up your

yarn tail, making sure the leg is positioned deep enough into the shoe.

Fasten off. Weave in ends. Fold the ribbing back over. Repeat this process for the

second leg.

Hair

(‘Wig’ part)

With black ;

R 1. SC 6 into MC or Ch 2 and SC 6 into first Chstch (6)

R 2. ( SC Inc ) x 6 (12)

R 3. ( SC 1, SC Inc )x 6 (18)

R 4. ( SC 2, SC Inc )x 6 (24)

R 5. ( SC 3, SC Inc )x 6 (30)

R 6. ( SC 4, SC Inc )x 6 (36)

R 7. ( SC 5, SC Inc )x 6 (42)

R 8. ( SC 6, SC Inc )x 6 (48)

R 9 – R 17. SC 48 around (48)

R 18. Slstch around, work loosely!

Fasten off, leave long tail for sewing.

Hair Buns :

Make two

With black ;

R 1. SC 6 into MC or Ch 2 and SC 6 into first Chstch (6)

R 2. ( SC Inc ) x 6 (12)

R 3. ( SC 1, SC Inc )x 6 (18)

R 4. ( SC 2, SC Inc )x 6 (24)

R 5 – R 6. SC 24 around (24)

R 7. ( SC 2, SC Dec)x 6 (18)

Fasten off, leave long tail for sewing the buns onto the hair.

Where you put them, is down to your imagination.

I usually put mine rather high up onto the head ( in between Rnds 7 & 11, counting

from the MC on the ‘wig’ hair part you’ve just created )

First, I encourage you to pin down the buns, so you can still move them, see what

looks best. Find the placement that ‘works’ for you and sew shut about 3/4ths of the

bun. This way, you can still stuff them more, if need be.

We all like nice, tight looking buns, don’t we ? ☺�

Accessories :

Now, for the most fun part. After all your hard crochet work, you can relax and start

decorating your Jacky. You can use whatever you fancy and what you feel your

version of Jacky needs. You can adapt her to the Season, make a boy version of

Jacky with some trousers, change her hairstyle, add flowers, buttons, … The

possibilities are endless !

Is she ready ? Put her in the spotlights and show her off, share her with the rest of the

World !

Variations :

You can let your creative juices flowing and customise this pattern to your taste ! I’ve

lined up some of my ‘Jacky’-creations for inspiration. For example, mind the detail on

the shoes.

And what do you think about the Easter-Jacky ? Aren’t they cute ?

The Low Shoes (ballerina’s) :

These are not made separately, but are attached to the leg.

Proceed as follows ;

R1 – R 9 : See description Shoe n°1, then change to sock colour

R10. Same as in description of shoe n°1 (see pg. 5) but BLO (!)

R11 – R16. Same as in description shoe n°1 (see pg. 5)

R17. (SC1, SC Inc)x 6 (12)

R18 – R23. SC23 around (23)

Change to skin colour and proceed with the rest of the shoe pattern from R24

onwards.

In order to accentuate the shoe, make a few stitches (colour of the shoe) into the

front loops of R10.

Next, Ch30, and wrap this chain forming an ‘X’ around on the front of the foot, right

beneath the ribbing, wrapping it further around onto the back of the leg. Secure it at

the back of the leg (see photo).
