This is NOT a detailed pattern and instructions because frankly, it was pretty tricky to figure out. I was more wrapped up in what I was doing than taking pictures and writing down details. Now that I'm done, I'm not interested in doing it again just for instructional purposes. Sorry, your on your own!
I will share my graph and what tips I can without confusing you too much. If you're an experienced crocheter, you can figure this out. The trickiest part is changing colors and adding on to the rows.
First of all, make an orange hat. I chose to do a basic double crochet earflap hat.
The Stampy face is worked with worsted weight yarn. White, dark grey, light grey, black, and green. In this graph image, the light grey on the outer edges is just dead space. The only place I used light grey yarn was for the nose(totally optional, you could just use the dark grey for the nose). This face is worked in HDC with a 4.25 mm hook.
Start at the bottom of the image. Ch 11 then starting in the second ch from hook, hdc across(10). At the end of each row, ch 1 and turn. Decide which side is the front and which is the back. You can stick in a stitch marker or a safety pin to mark which side is which.
In some places I carried the yarn if it made sense. Other places I cut and refastened. Take your time before you cut your yarn. Look to the next row and plan ahead. If you don't cut your yarn, be sure to pull your yarn you aren't using to the back side. This way it won't show when you pick it back up on the next row.
Everything is worked in hdc's except for the last dark grey sections of the outer eyebrows. I added that part after I was done. I worked two rows of 3 sc vertically along the edge of the white.
