Kokeshi Amigurumi English Pattern

As this pattern has been very popular on Ravelry, I have decided to put the English translation. I'm sorry if you do not understand my English expressions; please correct me .

This Kokeshi Amigurumi is made in traditional colors, but is equally beautiful.
I've put two hair bun to make it more funny. She looks totally like a geisha, because the face is very white and red colors stand out much.

It is made in one piece and in traditional crochet (not spiral).

36. - Picking and usually point, 2 sc, 1 dec, repeat to end (18)
37. - 1 sc, 1 dec, repeat to end (12)
We begin to fill the body and head. . We have to ensure that the head is completely round.
38. - 6 dec (6)
Finish off leaving a long end that we pass through the last six stitches and we put the end inside the body.

HAIR

The hair is done in black. It's like you put a helmet on the head. It is also done in traditional crochet.
1.- Magic ring with 6 sc (6)
2.- 6 inc (12)
3.- 1 sc, 1 inc, repeat to end (18)
4.- 2 sc, 1 inc, repeat to end (24)
5.- 1 inc, 3 sc, repeat to end (30)
6.- 4 sc, 1 inc, repeat to end (36)
7.- 1 inc, 5 sc, repeat to end (42)
8-13.- 1 sc in each point (42)
14.- Here we begin to leave bangs, making 30 sc and turning the crochet in rows and not in turns (not closed) (30)
15-18. - 1 sc in each point (30)
The length depends on our preferences (in my case to row 18). For hair to be more attached to the head (I like more) in each of the final two rows I have  made ​​two spaced decreases. In other Kokeshi I've seen on Internet, often the hair is separated from the head at the end, like a mane, but I prefer my version.

HAIR BUNS
They are made in black. Spiral crochet (in continuous rounds).
1.- Magic ring with 6 sc (6)
2.- 6 inc (12)
3.- 1 sc, 1 inc, repeat to end (18)
4-6.- 1 sc in each point (18)
7.- 1 sc, 1 dec, repeat to end (12)
8.- 6 dec (6)
Finish off leaving a long end for sewing to the head.

FLOWERS

They are made in red. They are made with a magic ring, and inside 2 dc, 1 ss, 2 dc, 1 ss, 2 dc, 1 ss, 2 dc (and have 4 petals, which is what I wanted).
We left two strands of yarn  to unite the hair buns and make ornaments.

Finally I embroidered in gold the details on the kimono (not shown in the photo, but they are stars because is it easier to embroider) and eyes. I painted with red crayons for the flushing of the cheeks and finished Kokeshi. Hope you like it (and especially I expect you do not be scared too much  because I speak English style Sofia Vergara but unfortunately without being so beautiful).

    1. Yes, joined rounds are opposed to spiral. You must join with a slip stich the first and the last stitch of the round.
