F/O, secure and leave a tail to sew, Fold the piece in half and sew it to the center of the beret (base).


ASSEMBLE
     I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I personally like to use matching thread).
     EYES...I used safety eyes. If you have no craft stores around your area that sell safety eyes you can use doomed buttons or black felt. Placement for them is between rounds 9 and 10; approx. 5 stitches apart (1.14").
     FEET...if you have not already stuff them lightly. Place them between rounds 18 and 20; approx 1.25" apart.
     ARMS...no need to stuff them. Align them to the feet and place them on rounds 12 and 13.
     TAIL...place it on the back on round 19.
     BERET...place it on the top center of the head/body.
     EARS...place them on round 6.
     NOSE and MOUTH...using black embroidery floss or yarn, embroider the nose and mouth between rounds.
