ASSEMBLY

  1. The facial features will be sewn to the piece that has not been fasten off.
  2. With Black yarn, sew the eyes on Row 4 or 5, 5 stitches apart. Sew the white eye detail on the side of each eye.
  3. With Black yarn, sew a line between the eyes. The line should be 3 stitches long.
  4. Insert the needle a row below the mouth and in the middle. Pull and go around the mouth to form a curve. Insert the needle again through the same stitch and pull. Tie a knot to secure the ends.

5. Place the two pieces of the body together with the right side facing out. Slip stitch all around going through both pieces. Stuff lightly before you finish closing the body. Finish closing the body, fasten off, and secure the stitches (I tie knots and stuff inside the body).

6. Using the whip stitch, sew the tooth in place using the BLO of the front piece and the FLO of the back piece (see picture below). Make sure the tooth is centered.

7. We will continue sewing the tail and then the fins. We will again sew only to the BLO of the front piece and the FLO of the back piece.

8. Before sewing the fins in place, take the end tail and insert it through the beginning chain (see picture below), then pull. The fins are sewn a row below the mouth. So that they are not sticking too much to the side, I sewed 2 stitches of the fins to the body.

9. Once finished, tie knots and stuff the ends inside the body.

And now, you have completed Part 3 of the Tiny Valentines pattern. I hope you enjoyed making these sweet little narwhals. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Happy Crochet!
