- when stitching together the pieces make sure to stick your hook through BOTH pieces to make sure they’re sewn together, you will stitch in every row and stitch around the panel, applying any special notes indicated in that portion of the pattern

- be sure to carry your yarn and pull your tails to the same side while stitching your panel, making that the “wrong side” and make sure your 2 body panels have opposite wrong sides so that you will have 2 right sides to use as the exterior of your animal.
