ASSEMBLY

  1. With the help of pins, fasten the snout between rounds 12 and 20 of the head. Sew the snout.
  2. Place the top head in the finished rattle. Make sure that the central backside of the head top is touching the edge border between the head and the handler (round 22 of the head). Sew it around the head.
  3. With the help of pins, fasten the ears on the top of the head where it looks symmetrical to you. I sewed the ears starting in round 6 and finishing in round 11. Leaving 8 stitches between them.
  4. Sew the snout detail in the tip of the nose.
  5. Now, take a piece of beige yarn and make a couple of uneven lines on the red part of the head. With the leftover yarn, make a couple of lines in the central part of the ear.
  6. Embroider a sleeping eye in round 14 and 15 taking the length of 4 stitches.
