Head

If you like, make the face shapping for the eyes.

Cut a long piece of brown yarn. Insert the needle with a long thread at the bottom of the head in point
1.
Point 1 should be approximately betweenn rows 10 and 11.

Pull it out in point 2 (try to do it as close to the eye as possible)

Insert the needle in point 3 and pull it out in point 4.

Insert the needle again in point 5 and pull it out in point 6 at the bottom
of the head (point 6 should be 1sc away from point 1).

Pull the yarn slightly after going though all the points. From some deepenings for the
eyes and make a couple of knots.

Embroider the nose and eyebrows with a thin black thread. Make 2 stitches with the white
thread on the outer side of the eyes, for a deeper look.
