I enjoyed making this little girl! I went for a more cutesy version of a goat, but I also love this more realistic pattern from Planet June!

Flowers
In a magic circle SC 5. Slip stitch to the first stitch. *Chain 5. Slip stitch in the same stitch. Slip stitch over the next.* Repeat * * 4 more times for a total of 5 petals. I made three and sewed them in front between the ears.

If you want some greenery with the flowers, I made really simple “leaves” by chaining 7 and then HDC in each chain across, fastening off, and sewing to the head.
