Assembly

1. Sew the ears onto either side of the head, starting at the 4th round and ending at the 9th round.
2. Next, sew on the arms at round 26.
3. Third, attach the legs covering a span of about 4 rounds. I sewed mine from rounds 3-6. Be sure each foot is facing forward as you sew. (Note: For firmer legs add a little bit of stuffing just before finishing.)
4. Almost done! Next, we will sew the stripes. (Optional: Use sewing pins to help hold each piece in place as you sew.) Line up both stripes side by side at the center top of the nose. Keep them side by side until you reach the top of the head. Give them a gradual part down the back of the head and body, bringing them together again at the lower back of the body.
5. Lastly, sew the tail onto the bottom center of the back. I sewed along the bottom of the tail as well as 1 inch up on each side to help hold its shape in an upward position.

Optional Floral Crown

Below are instructions if you would like to add a floral crown with leaves to your skunk. I used a 4-weight worsted yarn just as I did for the skunk. Very little yarn is needed in each color to complete. Feel free to mix up the colors!

Small Flower – Make 4
Chain 15

Row 1: HDC in the 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, ch 2 and turn.
Row 2: Sl st into the first st, *ch 2, sl st in the next st*, *repeat across.

Fasten off leaving a long tail. Starting with one end slowly roll your flower into a circle. Using your tail, pass through the bottom 3-4 times to secure its shape. Leave enough of a tail for sewing onto your skunk. (Picture below.)

Leaves – Make 2

Round 1: Complete the following inside of a magic circle; SC, HDC, DC, TR, Ch 1, TR, DC, HDC, SC. Pull tight to close and secure with a slip stitch to the first SC.

Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing.

Now time to sew your flowers and leaves onto your skunk! I placed a leaf on each side by the ears and centered my flowers between. Using pins will help hold them in place.
