Making: Starting from the head, which is begun by creating a magic ring and working in rounds to increase the size gradually, the pattern skillfully transitions from the head to the body with continuous crochet stitches. As the amigurumi grows, you'll notice the head taking a spherical shape, marking the spots for eye placement, ensuring Sally has a lively expression. Before attaching eyes, Sally requires special oval-shaped patches, crocheted separately and placed around the safety eyes for an expressive look. The pattern incorporates stitches such as single crochet, increase, and invisible decrease, emphasizing working in back loops only at certain points for texture and shape. The advanced techniques include sculpting the eyes to create an indented look, giving depth and emotion to Sally's expression. Once all the parts are made, including the head with its attached body and eye patches, the assembly is completed.
