Tail:

Assembly:
(Before sewing the pieces in place I would recommend pinning all the pieces in place to ensure everything is in alignment for the best result.)

Start by attaching the head to the body in row 7 of the head.

Attach the arms in the second to last row of the body too keep a bit of room for the scarf, with 14 rows in between the arms on the front of the body.

Attach the nose in the middle of the face across rows 16-19, the very top will go in to row 20..
To make the nostrills, using a tail of colour A sew a few sts in each end of row 1 and through the head so that you pull that part of the nose towards the face to make the nostril dents.

Attach the top of the ears in row 29 with 9 sts in between on row 28, the bottom of the ears should align with row 23. Do NOT attach the tips of the ears as you want these to flick up.

Attach the eyes across row 20-22 with 6 sts in between on row 21, the white part of the eyes should be set at 10 o’clock on the left and 2 o’clock on the right.

Using colour C, add the eyebrowns in row 24, with a 2 sts wide diagonal st, with 8 sts in between the two.

Add the mouth across row 14-15, with a 3 sts wide diagonal st, the top of the st should sit 2 sts away from the nose in row 15.

Attach the pom pom to the centre top of the hat.

Attach the front centre of the hat in row 29 at the very top of the ear, starting from just before the middle dip of the heart. It should sit on an angle to the left, making sure the ear flip is visible. Stuff the hat lightly as you go.

For the scarf you want to fold the scarf just where it goes over the arms to tuck it in and make a cross over the body. Sew in place.
