    Body/Head
    Made from the bottom up:
    Round 1: In a magic circle, SC 8.
    Round 2: SC INC in each around. (16)
    Round 3: SC in the first, SC INC in the next. Repeat around. (24)

    Snout
    Round 1: In a magic circle, SC 6
    Round 2: SC INC in each stitch around (12)
    Round 3: SC in first, SC INC in next. Repeat around. (18)
    Rounds 4-5: SC in each around. (18)

    Fasten off and leave a long tail to sew on to the face. Get a long piece of brown yarn. Embroider the nose on about row 4, making about 4-5 passes through the same stitches. Bring the needle up from the back, and cover about 4-5 stitches.

    With plush yarn, I find it easier to attach the snout after I stuff the head.

    The bottom of the snout should be at round 20 and the top will hit round 24. Pin it in place and use the tail to attach it. Stuff it lightly before you close.

    Ears (make 2)
    Round 1: In a magic circle, SC 8.
    Round 2: SC INC in each around. (16)
    Round 3: SC in the first, SC INC in the next. Repeat around. (24)
    Round 4: SC in each around. (24)

    Fasten off and leave a long tail. Fold the ears in half. You will attach the ears through both halves of the ear and through the head. Sew the ears about 3 rows out from the top of the head. The halves will curve and span about 5 rows between each side. Here is a video on how I attached mine! It is a worsted weight yarn (like the picture below) but the exact same principle!

    Arms

    NOTE: I highly suggest you visit this post before attaching the arms and the legs. This is my favorite method by far to attach limbs, and is worth watching the video and seeing the tutorial pictures!

    Stuff the hand and the bottom half of the arm as you go.

    Round 1: In a magic circle, SC 8.

    Round 2: SC INC in each around. (16)

    Rounds 3-5: SC in each around. (16)

    Round 6: INV DEC in each around. (8)

    Rounds 7-15: SC in each around.

    Fasten off and leave an extra long tail. Sew the opening closed.

    Attach the arms between rows 15 and 16 of the body. Use the yarn through method, or if you prefer you can do it the traditional way.

    Legs

    Again, if you missed the link before, I really suggest this tutorial on how to attach the limbs!

    Stuff the foot and ¾ of the leg.

    Round 1: In a magic circle, SC 8.

    Round 2: SC INC in each around. (16)

    Round 3: SC in the first, SC INC in the next. Repeat around. (24)

    Rounds 4-7: SC in each around. (24)

    Round 8: INV DEC 7x. SC in the remaining 10. (17)

    Round 9: INV DEC 4x. SC in the remaining 9. (13)

    Rounds 10-20: SC in each around. (13)

    Fasten off and leave an extra long tail. Sew the opening closed.

    Attach the legs between rows 4 and 5 of the body, making sure the feet are the right direction. Use the yarn through method, or if you prefer you can do it the traditional way.

    1. What kind of Premier Yarn did you use? From the pictures it looks like Retro Velvet. But I want to be sure to buy the right plushy chunky yarn!

      1. This is Premier Parfait Chunky! I haven’t used the retro plush, so I can’t give you an idea of how similar they are!
