Sorry I didn't see the hair instructions, but I see them now. I think that I can do them without the tutorial, but if I get stuck I will PM you.
THANKS!
Have a great day!

See those 2 dots underneath Round 7? Those are the instructions for the hair. I don't think anybody can notice these instructions at first (or 23rd) glance!

If you still don't see the instructions, here they are:

(you may want to crochet the ‘hair’ at this point, I started at the 3rd line from top:
§ Ch2, dc on at the same space, 2 dc all the way around to form a circle, join with a sl st
§ Ch2 dc in next dc, *dc, tr cr, ch 4 and sl st on top of dc in space before 2dc cluster, dc* in space before the next cluster* repeat all the way around, join with a sl st and finish off[1]

This is my version of The Orange Guy. I was luck enough to test and this is what I came up with. Mine is hot pink and my dh told me he looks like Kool-Aid mans sidekick! I think it is so cute! (You really can't see the mouth but it is there.) Thank you for letting me test for you.:hook

Wow. I belong to an organization where one of the men is nicknamed "Orange Man." He always wears bright orange shirts -- I think it's a variation of OCD. He's just learning social skills and he has a tendency to overdue the welcoming kiss and hug. Hence all the women just call him "Orange Man."
