Scarf

For a scarf, make a chain of 60 ch, and starting from the second loop from the hook, knit several (3-5) rows in turning rows. We start the next rows with ch1.
* We choose the length of the scarf according to the size of your toy. The larger the ch chain, the longer the scarf

Assembling a toy:

Sew the muzzle right under the eyes (do not stuff). Sew the ears between the 16-22 row of the head (the beginning of the row from the bottom). Sew the tail between about 8-10 row the body.
We embroider stitches on the forehead, tummy, on the sides of the arms and legs. For this we take black sewing threads of 4-6 threads. I do not advise taking too thick threads.

Sew the cap on the side of the head. Sew a decorative button to the scarf.
Your toy is ready!
