The ears

Brace yourself. It's time. Time to learn the magic loop.

Magic loop giving you trouble? Try this easier chain method instead. It'll probably leave you with a hole in the middle, but that's OK – you gotta do what you gotta do to make that circle.

Whether you made a circle using the magic loop or chain method, give yourself a pat on the back for finishing Round 1. The rest of the ears are the moves you've already mastered ✌️ sc, inc, dec stitches.


Round 1: 4 sc in magic loop (4)
Round 2:
inc x 4 (8)
Round 3:
8 sc (8)
Round 4:
[sc, inc] x 4 (12)
Round 5:
12 sc (12)
Round 6:
[dec, sc] x 4 (8)
Round 7:
8 sc (8)
Round 8:
dec x 4 (4)

Fasten off and leave a long tail. Don't stuff. Flatten them and sew them on so they span rounds 2 & 3. They should look centered above the eyes.

And now for the finishing touch – the inner ear fuzz:
