Sweet-tooth Voo-doo Doll

While still in the month of January and of course having one of my new years resolution to lose weight.... ahem.... I thought that I could use some added help. Sooooooooooo I created a pattern and whipped up a Sweet-tooth Voo-doo doll~
So far, all I've lost is 2 hours... 2 hours of sitting on my butt crocheting... but its a loss. *wink*
Here is the pattern if your needing another tool in your weight loss arsenal.
  
Sweet-tooth Voo-doo Doll
Materials: 
- White and black worsted weight yarn
- Size F crochet Hook
- Buttons
- Tapestry needle
- Straight Pins

Abbreviations:
sc = single crochet stitch
dc = double crochet stitch
sc inc = single crochet increase
dc dec = double crochet decrease
sl st = slip stitch

First root/leg
Using white yarn...
Round 1: Magic ring, 4 sc in ring, sl st in first sc made. (4 sc)
Round 2: 2 sc in each stitch. (8 sc)
Rounds 3 - 7: 8 sc around (8 sc)
Fasten off and stuff firmly leaving room so you can crochet the stitches at the top of the root/leg when it is added to the doll. Tuck the extra yarn into the root/leg to hide.

Second root/leg and Body
You will be using the same pattern that you used for the first root/leg but you will not be tying off on round 7....
Round 1: Magic ring, 4 sc in ring, pull and join together in first sc made. (4 sc)
Round 2: 2 sc in each stitch. (8 sc)
Rounds 3 - 7: 8 sc around (8 sc) Firmly stuff the second root/leg you have just completed. Do not tie off. The next round is where you will add the first root/leg to the sweet tooth doll.
Round 8: pick up the previously made root/leg you made and join together with a slip stitch. You will sl st in the sc stitch that is next to the last stitch of the root/leg, pull tight. Sc in the next 17 stitches around the two legs. (17 sc) Now with the two legs joined together it is time to start on the body. Round 9: 7 sc, 2 dc, 7 sc, 2 dc. (18 stitches)
Round 10: 18 sc around. (18 sc) (At this point, if you need to increase or decrease your stitches to get to 18 sc go ahead and do so)
Round 11: *4 sc, 2 sc in next stitch* do this 3 times, 2 sc. (20 stitches)
Round 12: *3 sc, 2 sc in next stitch* do this 4 times around, 3 sc. (23 stitches)
At any point you can place a marker to help you keep track of your stitches. Just as long as each starting row is kinda in the general area keep going! It is just a voo-doo doll after all~

Round 13: 23 sc around. (23 sc) (At this point, if you need to increase or decrease stitches to get to 23 sc go ahead and do so)
Round 14: *4 sc, 1 sc dec* do this four times. (20 stitches)
Round 15: *3 sc, 1 sc dec* do this four times around (16 sc) Add stuffing to your sweet tooth doll.
Round 16: *2 sc, 1 sc dec* do this four times, 1 sc. (12 sc)
Round 17: *1 sc, 1 sc dec* do this five times around. ( 10 stitches)
Round 18:  Last chance to add a little more stuffing... At this point, continue with sc dec stitches until the hole is closed. This will take three or four decrease stitches. Tie off leaving a long yarn tail so that you can use a tapestry needle to pull down the top of the crocheted tooth so it looks like a flat molar. Weave in the yarn and cut off the excess. 
Eyes:
Using either thread or yarn attach one button to your sweet-tooth doll. The second eye will just be an "X" made using black yarn.
Now just add pins to your Sweet-tooth Voo-doo doll and let the magic begin!
There you have it... a Sweet-tooth Voo-doo doll to help you lose weight. Perfect to help you ward off any heart-shaped-chocolate-filled-Valentine-box temptations that come your way.

Thank you for my morning giggle! I love the idea of a sweet-tooth voodoo doll. I sure would keep it busy. LOL

You know --- crochet is actually exercise. You probably burnt off at LEAST 3 calories!
