Katie the Koala measures about 12 inches tall
Slowly stuff as you go, you want it to be firm but not stretched. You will be working in the round, I like using a stitch marker at the beginning of each round.

Legs and Body-
Legs: Make 2 – Using white

Round 1: Create a magic circle with 6 SC
Round 2: SC INC in each st (12 SC)
Round 3: SC in the first st, SC INC in the next, repeat around (18 SC)
Round 4: SC in the first 2 sts, SC INC in the next, repeat around (24 SC)
Round 5: SC in the back loops only (24 SC)
Rounds 6-7: SC around (24 SC) Change to light grey
Rounds 8-21: SC around (24 SC)

Fasten off (when you finish the 2nd leg do not fasten off, proceed to round 22)

*Round 22 joins the legs together and starts the body
Round 22: 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 (you will have SC on both sides of the 3 chains now) (54 SC) This completes your join and is where your next round will start.

This completes your join and is where your next round will start.
