Ch 4, join with a sl st in the furthest ch from the hook.

Round 1: ch 3 (counts as a dc), then work 15 dc into the center of the ring. Join with a sl st to close round.

To add “rays” onto the sun, cut 16 six inch pieces of yarn. Ad one piece of yarn to each stitch around the sun as if you are making fringe along the edge of a scarf. If you’ve never made fringe before, check out this helpful video:

Trim all of the rays (fringe) to about 1/2 inch to 1 inch long.

To add the smile I used the back stitch:

To make the eyes, I made a french knot for each (if you prefer, you can also use a bead or button instead):

Weave in any ends that remain and you’re finished!
