Boy’s Hair
I like to use soft, fuzzy types of yarn for the hair. Lion Brand Silky Twist and Homespun or Yarn Bee’s Soft Touch are some good examples. As you crochet let some of the little “loops” in the yarn come through… do not crochet too tightly. Looser stitches will let that cute hair come through! I would pull up little fluffs as I went. Also check the “wrong” side. It may look better!

Round 15: Chain 1. Skip one stitch. DC INC in the first stitch. DC in the next. DC INC in the next. Skip one stitch and slip stitch in the next. Repeat around. Slip stitch to the first stitch and fasten off. Leave a long tail to sew onto the head.

To make the pony tail hair, chain 40. Slip stitch in each stitch back up the chain. Fasten off and leave a tail to sew on to the hair hat. I made 12. I just sew both ends (the tail made from the chain and the tail left from fastening off) on the hat, with one or two passes through the top of the piece. I tie them underneath the hat. The knots will be hidden when placed on the head. Sew right around and slightly above the center circle.
Then sew the hair hat on the head. I like to use pins to keep it where I want it as I sew.
I wrapped extra yarn around the hair and tied tightly in the back for the ponytail holder.

Arms
With the skin color:
Round 1: In a magic circle, SC 6 . (6)
Round 2: INC in each around. (12)
Rounds 3-6: SC in each stitch around (12)
Change to accent color
Rounds 7-10: SC in each stitch around (12)
Change to main color
Rounds 11-28: SC in each stitch around.
Stuff lightly and attach to body. I sew them on between rows 62 and 63.


Attach Mask
I attach the mask after the hair and everything else is sewn on. The mask may overlap the hair just a little bit and it helps to have it on so you can position the mask correctly. Pins will be your friend here.
I do not sew in every stitch. A few well placed stitches will be enough. Remove the pins as you go. Weave the ends through a few times and then push the needle through the back of the head. Pull tightly and then cut it as close as you can. The end should stay inside the head.

Cape
Chain 18
Row 1: DC in the third stitch from the hook. Chain 2 and turn. (16)
Row 2: DC in each stitch across. Chain 2 and turn. (16)
Row 3: DC INC in the first, DC in the next. Repeat across. Chain 2 and turn. (24)
Row 4: DC in each stitch across. Chain 2 and turn. (24)
Row 5: DC INC in the first, DC in the next 2. Repeat across. Chain 2 and turn.(32)
Row 6-13: DC in each across. Chain 2 and turn.(32)
Row 14: DC in each across. Chain 1.
You will now be crocheting along the edge to make it nice and clean. HDC in each DC and chain space up the sides. Once you reach the top, chain 20. Fasten off and leave a long end. Thread the yarn through the chains and sew in the end inside the cape. The chains are now the ties for the cape.
Fasten the yarn to the bottom of the cape on the other side. Repeat the process. Tie the cape around your Friendly Hero’s shoulders!
