  • Step 6

    To make up

    Using the fastened-off yarn end, sew
    up the body seam to half way. Using
    the cast-on yarn end, work a gathering thread along the cast-on edge and draw up tightly. Sew up the body seam a little further, stuff and close the body.

    Using yarn A, work a gathering thread where you want to create the neck and draw up tightly. Using the cast-on yarn end, sew up the seam for the spikes to row 13. Wrap the spikes around the body, covering the back of the body and placing the seam underneath the body. Stitch all around to secure the spikes.

    Using the fastened-off yarn end, sew the arm seams. Attach the cast-on edge of the arms to the body without stuffing. Attach the beads for the eyes. Attach the nose. Using yarn C, embroider a mouth with a straight stitch. Attach the ears.
