Tail and mane.

Cut 3 long pieces of yarn, fold in half and fasten at the back using the fringe method (pass the hook under the base of the SC, grab the thread that is folded in half, pull through the SC, thread the ends of the thread through the loop and tighten). Braid a pigtail, tie a knot at the end, leave a brush.

The mane is attached in the same way – by the fringe method all over the head. I cut a lot of yarn of the same length (I used Alize Happy baby (acrylic, 330 meters in 100g) and yellow Alize Softy). Along the line of the forehead and at the temples, fasten the yarn in 2 threads to each SC, then all over the head I fastened to each SC, but 1 thread each, alternating softy and happy baby.

Baktus according to the scheme, 9 rows, crochet 2.5, Alize Happy Baby yarn.

Assembly.

1. Sew the head to the body.

2. Hands sew to the body, stepping back from the head 2-3 rows.

3. Sew the ears to the head between 4-9 rows.

4. Eyes between 10th and 11th rows 5 SC apart.

5. Sew the muzzle between the 11th and 17th rows of the head.

6. Attach the tail to the body at the back on the 5-6th row.

7. If desired, decorate the tummy with a cloth and tie a bactus.

8. Stuff all the details except for the ears.

Advice.

I sewed the details with a different, ordinary yarn, as Dolce gets fuzzy

and breaks up. As can be seen from the photographs, there is no other yarn at all.
