INFO AND TIPS
Always stuff the head and body firmly. Always stuff between head and body as you sew the head
on to avoid a wobbly head. Sew the head on with small firm stitches to avoid that it tilts.
Work tightly to avoid holes between the stitches.
All pieces are worked in a spiral.

ASSEMBLING
· Stuff the spikes lightly with fiberfill and sew the first onto the head over rounds 24-30 and sew
the other 2 onto the head with 4 rounds in between.
· Embroider nostrils over rounds 5-6 with 3 sc in between, with approx. 3-4 stitches.
· Position the body on the head over rounds 17-22 and sew them together, it is important to sew
with small stitches and stuff well between head and body as you work to avoid a wobbly head. You
can also stiffen the head and body using for instance a piece of cable, 20 cm (8”) long and a with
diameter of 0.5 cm (0.2”), which you push through the head and body.
For the amigurumi on the pictures, I did not use any I only sewed with small stitches and stuffed
well in between.
· Sew the legs on diagonally on round 4 of the body with 4 sc in between.
· Stuff the tail lightly and position the bottom edge of the tail on round 8 of the body and the top
edge of the tail on round 31, pin it on, sew it on and stuff lightly as you work.
· Sew the first spike onto the body over rounds 6-13 and sew the last 3 spikes on with approx. 4
rounds in between.
Sew the arms onto the body on round 45.
· Embroider the stripes on the belly while tying a knot after each stripe and pushing the knot
through to the inside to hide it.
1st stripe: between rounds 19-20 across 16 sc
2nd stripe: between rounds 23-24 across 16 sc
3rd stripe: between rounds 27-28 across 14 sc
4th stripe: between rounds 31-32 across 9 sc
5th stripe: between rounds 35-36 across 9 sc
· Sew the headphones onto the head.

Enjoy!
