Notes

This was a very quick little pattern. I’m so happy with the result! Except I sewed the tail on a little crooked..

I don’t really care for the way the legs are done (and would probably change them if I made them again. I just think the decreases made it a bit too holey.

I changed the ears because of yarn constraints (I wanted them to be pink, but didn’t have enough, and then left them smaller). Here’s what I did:
Round 1: sc 6 in a magic loop (6)
Round 2: 2 sc in each stitch around (12)
Round 3: (2 sc in first stitch, sc in next stitch) Repeat around (18)
Rounds 4-15: sc around (18)
Round 16: (sc 2 tog, sc in next stitch) Repeat around (12)
Sew end closed, fold in half and sew on.

The only other thing I added was the bow. To make it:
Make a magic loop and ch 2. Dc 4, ch 4, dc 5, ch4. Slip stitch into the top of original ch 2. Fasten off.
Hold the circle with the chains on the top and bottom. Then squash the chains together. Using the ending tail yarn, wrap it around the middle from the back until the center of the circle is hidden (I think I wrapped five times). Then tie a knot with the two tail ends. You can now sew it on!
