NOTES –

– Slowly stuff as you go, you want it to be firm but not stretched. You will be working in the round; I like to use a stitch marker at the beginning of each round.

– The legs, body and head will be made as one piece.

Nose –
With Accent A

Round 1: Create a magic circle with 6 SC
Round 2: SC INC in each st (12)
Round 3: SC in the first st, SC INC in the next, rep around (18)
Round 4: SC in the first 2 sts, SC INC in the next, rep around (24)
Round 5: SC in the first 7 sts, SC INC in the next, rep around (27)
Round 6: SC around (27)

Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing onto the head. With a small piece of pink crochet thread and tapestry needle, pass through 3 sts between the 3rd and 4th rounds approximately 5 times. (Pass through more or less for a bigger/smaller nose). Create a straight line down 2 rows from the center to complete.

Legs – Make 2

Round 13: SC in the next 7 sts (this will align our color changes to be at the back when our join is complete). Chain 3 and attach to the first leg with a SC. SC in the remaining stitches around the leg. When you reach the chain make a SC across each of the 3 chains. SC in the remaining stitches of the next leg and SC across each of the 3 chains again. You will have crocheted on each side of the chain. (42 SC) This completes your join and is where your next round will start.
