  • Step 2

    ears
    Working with only the 4 stitches on the needle with the working yarn attached, knit 3 rows as an I-cord.
    Break the yarn, leaving a tail of 12" (30.5cm).
    Thread the tail onto a tapestry needle, and draw the yarn tightly through the stitches of the I-cord you just worked. Next, insert the needle back through the I-cord and reattach the yarn to the leftmost stitch on the remaining DPN. Knit 3 rows as an I-cord, then draw the tail tightly through the stitches.

  • Step 3

    finishing
    With black, embroider eyes with one small horizontal stitch for each, placed 2 stitches below the ears and spaced 2 stitches apart.
    Weave in the loose ends.
