About the Author


Calliste lives on a small ranch near Valley Center, California. When she's not designing, she does a lot of crochet for charity. Other passions of hers include qi gong, painting, and jigsaw puzzles. Her Grandma Gladys taught her to crochet at the age of 11, and she hasn't stopped since. As a young stay-at-home mother, Calliste developed my skills, and in 1989 I submitted my first pattern to Annie’s. Calliste has had many designs published in the following years, but once the kids grew up, she began a career as a Sign Language Interpreter, and her time for design was limited. After 21 years in the profession she loved, she have retired, and now she have plenty of time!

Ear & Tail

Ear and tail patterns vary and will be found in each individual animal's section.

Assembly

Lightly steam all pieces, shaping to smooth edges, if necessary. Fold face in half, use stitch markers to mark each end of folded edge. Refold face so stitch markers meet, and again use stitch markers to mark each end of folded edge. This divides face into quarters and will aid in placement of ears and features. Mark the back of head in same way, dividing it into quarters. Following individual face diagrams, use black to backstitch, satin stitch or straight stitch(see illustrations) as necesary to stitch mouth, nose and eyelids onto RS of face.

With RS up, sew ears to front of face in position individually designated, between rows 14 and 15.

With RS up, sew tummy to center of right side of body.

On WS of body, center and sew tail along row 7.

With WS tog, begin to sew back of head and face tog, matching quarter marks, and leaving face markers in place. Before closing, insert pillow or stuff with fiberfill, and continue sewing to enclose. Fold body piece together so that arms meet, use a stitch marker to mark center neck. With RS up, align neck marker with the face marker below smile. Pin neck edge in place along the seam line of head, measuring 3 inches to each side of neck center for placement of shoulder ends. Sew tog.

For optional bow, wrap the bow band across WS of bow, and back around RS until band row 6 meets band row 1. Use the 10-inch tail of yarn to stitch these rows tog to encase bow. Adjust bow shape as needed, and sew in desired position above an ear, or at the bottom of face near center neck.
