FACE SHAPING: USING THE REMAINING TAIL FROM THE HEAD, DRAW THE YARN UP UNDER THE INSIDE CORNER OF THE RIGHT CHEEK (1). GUIDE THE YARN BACK THROUGH THE FACE 1 STITCH AWAY, AND DRAW THE YARN BACK UP THROUGH THE INSIDE CORNER OF THE LEFT EYE (2). GUIDE THE YARN BACK THROUGH THE HEAD 1 STITCH AWAY, REPEATING STEPS 1 & 2 THROUGH THE RIGHT EYE AND LEFT CHEEK (3 & 4). PULL THE TAIL FIRMLY AT EACH POINT, CAUSING THE EYES AND CHEEKS TO SLIGHTLY INDENT. TIE OFF REMAINING TAIL AND HIDE IN HEAD. USING THE DARNING NEEDLE, PUFF OUT THE TOP OF THE CHEEKS ABOVE EACH INDENT GIVING A “FULLER” LOOK. SEE PATTERN NOTES ON PAGE 2 FOR A YOUTUBE LINK ON GENERAL FACE SHAPING FOR AMIGURUMI.
