     Take two strands of lavender yarn together. Leaving a little yarn at the start for sewing, ch 7 and fasten off. Cut off the excess leaving a small tail end. 
     With tapestry needle split the tail end.

  • Attach the legs to the body. I placed the forelegs 5 stitches down from the eyes. 
  • Place the hindlegs 6 stitches away from the forelegs.
  • Sew on the ears one stitch away from the sides of the eyes.
  • Finally, sew the tail at the back of the body.
