You may choose to stuff them. I fold them and weave through the next 3 stitches (leaving a stitch at each end) before attaching on the body.

Assembling

1. POMPOM TO HAT

I stuffed the little pompom with the beginning yarn tail left from the magic ring, and then close the pompom by weaving the end tail through each of the 4 stitches and then through the top of the hat, and tie a few knots with the beginning yarn tail of the hat.

2. Head

Instead of stuffing, I folded (attach the pompom & beard first!) and weave through the next 5 stitches (leaving a stitch at each end) before attaching on the body.

3. Limbs

I attach each arm about 4 stitches away from the head, and then the feet 12 stitches away from the arms.

And you are done! The video tutorial is in the making and remember to check out the tag for other Christmas Coasters coming up soon!
