Dumpling Crochet Patterns

Bits of worsted weight yarn in white
3.5mm crochet hook
Embroidery thread in pink and white
Needle and thread
4mm black beads for eyes

Dumpling is made by crocheting a circle, which is then folded in half and seamed together with a scalloped edge.
The circle is crocheted in continuous rounds (i.e. no slip stitch at the end of round):
With white
ch 3, 5 sc in 3rd ch from hook, 2 sc in top of beginning ch, 2 sc in each of next 4 sc, sc in next sc, repeat [2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc] until piece measures 1 3/4 inches across.
Then, repeat [1 sc in each of next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc] until piece measures 2 1/4 inches across. Then sc in next sc, sl st in next sc. Don’t fasten off.
Fold piece in half so that the raw stitch lies on the fold line, like so…
