The Halloween LoveBug Mod

Materials :

Red Heart® Classic® WW 4-Ply Yarn in 0672 Spring Green, 0245 Orange and 0336 Warm Brown
Size E4/3.50 Crochet Hook (US) 
Filling for Plushies (fiberfil or similar)
6mm Black Plastic Beads for Eyes
DumDum Lollipops (or similar product)

*Special Notation(s):
- This pattern is worked in continuous rounds unless otherwise noted.  Stuff your piece as you work as there are NO “stuff here” indicators present within the pattern instructions.
- Only the Head/Body of this project are stuffed with filling; all other sections remain unstuffed.
- Eyes are placed at approximately Rnd 8 and spaced 4 sts apart on Head - however, you may wish to place them upon completion based on your crocheting techniques and personal preferences.Creating the sections of the "Pumpkin Head" is optional - however, place eyes, stem and any additional little touches BEFORE you attempt to create the divots with long stitches.
- The Vines by the Stem are merely scraps of Spring Green, unwound, reducing the 4 ply yarn to 4 individual strands - then given a good twist and allowing them to lay as they wish.
