Sew onto face

Eyes x 2
Sew on eyes (black buttons)
Do not leave a child under 36 months unattended with buttons on the hat.

Whiskers
Sew 6 lengths of yarn to face. I attached them at one end only (nearest the nose)


Mouth

 

To make the mouth you put your hook from front to back and pull a loop of yarn through.  You then move to the next hole and put the hook from front to back and pull a loop through the hat and the loop you have on the hook.
     
Carry on till you make the shape of a mouth.  I find it easier to carry on and complete one side of the mouth.  Finish off and then start the other side of the mouth from where the mouth goes off in the two different directions.
