R19-28 (10 rounds): SC in each ST around {65}, You can now place the eyes: – stuff the head well first – pin the ears to the head and mark the place where the nose will go to help you visualise the final look – it helps to use pins with large heads to first mark the spots where the eyes will be placed – you can make a decision whether you are happy with the placement and if it looks symmetrical before you insert the safety eyes; the safety eyes usually make a large hole in between the stitches so it is not recommended to change the placement of the eyes once they are in (Pic H1) – place the eyes between rounds R15 and R16 – first eye – count 19 stitches from your marker at the start of R15 and place the eye between ST19 and ST20 – second eye – count 35 stitches from your marker at the start of R15 and place the eye between ST35 and ST36 – if you didn’t leave your marker in R15, then place the first eye between the 2nd and 3rd INC ST in R15 and the second eye between the 10th and 11th INC ST in R15 – you can now insert the safety eyes but do not put the safety backs on yet (Pic H2), Sculpting the eyes (indented eye look): – take a long piece of yarn and thread your needle – remove the left eye; place the needle in a hole next to the left eye hole (Pic H3) – remove the right eye; come across the side with the needle and place it into a hole next to the right eye hole; pull all the way through till the yarn tail is not showing – place your needle in a second hole next to the right eye and come across the side with the needle again – repeat the process back and forth between the two eye holes while pulling on the yarn tightly each time you come across the side (Pic H6) – you will need to repeat this about three times until you achieve the indented eye look you want and then you can weave the yarn in – place the eyes back in the holes; remove some or most of the stuffing and place the safety backs on making sure they snap in place tightly – you can now re-stuff the head (Pic H7, H8) and continue crocheting R29, R29: (SC in next 9 ST, INV DEC) x 5, SC in next 10 ST {60} R30: (SC in next 8 ST, INV DEC) x 6 {54} R31: (SC in next 7 ST, INV DEC) x 6 {48}
