Ignore the colour change in the images below, I ran out of yarn!🙈

Shaping of the face:
(Guidance images below)
Using pins, mark off the following points first on the front of the face:
In row 12, count 4 sts in between on the middle of the face, add a pin on each side
Repeat the same step in row 13 and 14, you should have 6 pins in total.
Using a needle and a bit of DK cotton yarn (white or pink is fine), make the first stitch from the right to the left pin in row 12.
Make the next st 1 st back and through the head again, exiting 1 sts back from the entry st, pull tight to create a dent between the two sts. Repeat once more in the same sts.
Once you’re done in row 12, follow the same steps for row 13 and 14.
Fasten off and tie in loose ends.

(I would recommend marking the following with pins first)
The top of the smile will sit in row 10, 3 sts away from the nose on each side.

Make 1 long st to do the mouth and secure in place with a few sts.
To make the dimples, make a small diagonal st across each end of the mouth.
