Rep Rnd 6 four more times. Make sure to keep your floats loose so fabric doesn't pucker.
Rnd 11: k3 red, twist, k21 yellow.
Cut red strand, leaving a tail long enough to weave in later.
Rnd 12: Knit all yellow.
Rnd 13: With yellow k4, k2tog, ssk, k8, k2tog, ssk, k4 - 20 sts.

Cont dec’ing in this manner, 2 sts on each side of head every rnd, until only 4 sts rem. Cut yarn, thread end through rem sts, pull tight, tie off, weave in ends. (I actually don't weave in any ends because they'll be on the inside anyway, but you can if you want.) Stuff head firmly. Using off-white yarn, cinch the points of the football to create ears. Using black yarn, embroider ears, hair, eyebrows, eyes, nose and mouth. For comparison, you can use the above photo of my finished product or another picture of Stewie with the facial expression of your choice. Lightly stuff body. Right Leg:
Using 3 dpns and red yarn, pick up 12 sts (4 sts on each needle) along lower edge of right side of body, starting from bottom center back (original slip knot) and ending at bottom center front. Join to work in the rnd.

  2. I'm glad you like it. Let me know if you have any questions. I would love to see your Stewie doll when you finish it.

    And your English is certainly much better than my Portuguese, which is nonexistent.

  12. I was rambling around Ravelry and stumbled upon your Stewie pattern...Love It! If I had any ink left in my printer I would be downloading and tossing the stash to make one right now..making a note to myself to come back later. In the meantime, thanks for creating and sharing Stewie :-) (P.s. Im not anonymous; I just can't seem to get along with Google/Blogger), Bev, lazytvknitter on Ravlery where I am photoless...need to get a digital camera too.
