Don’t forget to stuff the legs as you go!

Put the two crocheted legs together. Feet should face a bit to the sides. Join the legs with single crochet in the place where they touch each other. This stitch is the beginning of the next rounds. Crochet 46 sc around both legs beginning from the back and finish just at the stitch between the legs.

Make increases as given, or make them evenly along the round not to get stripes on the body.

One more thing: it’s recommended to crochet the left displacement stitch in every 4th round of the body for the stitch marker to stay in the center.

Body, continue crocheting:
