PATTERN NOTES
  Gauge isn't all that important, but your hook and yarn choices should result in a fairly tight stitch so that the stuffing won't show through.
  Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round or row indicate the total number of stitches for that round or row.

  ASSEMBLY:
  I highly recommend pinning all the pieces together before sewing anything to make sure you have all the pieces done right and that you get them in the positions you like best before sewing. It seems like alot of extra work, but this will save you ALOT of hassle.
  As I have show you in the previous pictures. Place fin on the back just like shown in image 2.
  Hair goes right on the middle of the top part. Align it right on the middle of the eyes.
  Eyes are constructed from felt. See pictures for guidance on how to get your eyes to look like.
  Mouth see image 5 for placement.
  The fins that go on the side of Cheep-Cheep, I sketch them out first before drawing them in the felt.

Hope you enjoy your new plushie.
