To Make Up – With the fas­tened-off yarn, sew the body seam closed from the head down to the neck. Keep this yarn end free at the neck. With the cast-on yarn end, work a run­ning stitch along the cast-on edge of the body and pull tightly to gather. Sew the body closed from the base up to the waist. Stuff firmly then sew the rest of the body seam closed but avoid­ing the neck area. With the yarn end left at the neck, work a run­ning stitch around the neck and pull tightly to gather. Thread a nee­dle with yarn A and in­sert it from the cen­tre of the base, tak­ing the nee­dle out at the back of the body. Re­peat with the other yarn end and pull on the yarn ends to flat­ten the base.

Seam the arms, nose and hat and sew them in place on the body.

At­tach the but­tons to the front of the body.

With yarn D, work a French knot for each eye and em­broi­der the mouth with short back stitches. At­tach the scarf around the neck. ■
