Sew the flat side of the eye rings to the snout at the 10 and 2 o’clock positions, don’t attach the safety eyes yet.

27. (SC 2, INV DEC) x 6 (18)

Attach the eyes through the eye ring AND through the head so they are attached through both layers, this will prevent the eyes from protruding too much.  Since the snout and eyes rings aren’t sewn on yet make sure you count the number of stitches between where the eyes are entering the head.  I attached my eyes 13 stitches apart.

Stuff the head and body

28. (SC 1, INV DEC) x 6 (12)

Sew the bottom shut with your yarn by sewing through the front loop of every stitch and pulling it tight until it closes.
