Now... the pattern...

Eyes (x2, brown yarn)
1: 6sc in MR (6)
2: +* (12)
3: [1sc, 1+]* (18)
4: sc* (18) sl.st.
Next, cut two circles of white gender, more or less in diameter covering up the second round of the eye. Make a cut to a little over half of the circle in order to introduce safety eyes.

Place the eyes in the desired position, but do not put the safety lock still as this will join head and only then will place the lock. I did not put them centered, but touching one edge of the white part.

Leave aside the eyes for a while and do the head. Color changes will be noted in the text of the instructions: in black text, brown colour and red text, cream colour

Now we´re going to join the head with the body in order to make them posable. Cut brown yarn, about 30cm long and with blunt needle join the parts as shown in the graph.
Entering through the point 1, we let 10cm leftover yarn, went out for the No. 2 spot, we entered the bottom of the head by No. 3, taking a little filling we emerged from the head of the No. 4, we again enter the body through the No. 5 and went through the same point at which we enter, No. 1 and 6. Now we pull both threads ensuring that the parts are in the desired position. Having achieved this, firmly pull both threads and make a double knot. Hide the excess in the body.

17: 4- (6)  FO and close the remaining stitches. Hide the leftover inside the leg. Embroider the toes with brown yarn if desidered.

Now we´ll be joining the legs with the body in order to make them posable.
Cut brown yarn, one strand for each pair of legs, about 30cm long and with blunt needle join the parts as shown in the graph.

Enter at the No.1 spot on the internal face of the leg, leaving a 10cm leftover yarn. Taking a little filling get out for point No. 2, also from the inner face of the leg. Enter the body through the point No. 3, exit the opposite side and enter the No. 4 of the inside of the other leg, taking a little filling out for the No. 5 to re-enter through body at point No. 6, getting out at the opposite side. Pull both threads until the parts are in the desired position. After this, pull tightly and secure with a double knot, then hide the leftovers inside the body. Repeat with the second pair of legs.
