TAIL

use white yarn and make two

Rnd 9: (2sc, dec) repeat around [9]
For the first piece you make, fasten off and cut the yarn.
For the second piece, stop after round 9. You will now continue by joining the two pieces together.
Rnd 10: After completing round 9 on your second piece, insert your hook into a stitch from your first piece. Draw up a loop and yarn through as you would for any single crochet stitch. This will join the two pieces together. Continue crocheting around the newly attached piece and if you keep going all the way around, you should end up with two joined pieces and 18 stitches total by the end of the round.
Rnd 11: 5sc, inc, 7sc, inc, 4sc [20]
Rnd 12: 2sc, dec, 8sc, dec, 5sc [18]

POM POM

There are many different ways to make pom poms but this is the technique that I used. Feel free to experiment and find out what works best for you!
Wind your white yarn around a medium sized dinner fork around 40 times. Use a length of white yarn (about 7 inches) to tie the middle of the bundle together tightly. Slide the fork out and snip the open ends of all the loops. Fluff out the pom pom and trim evenly. You can use the tail ends of the yarn which you used to tie the bundle to now attach the pom pom to the top of the hat! Weave in all yarn ends neatly.

SCARF

Chain 66 in white and 2 in blue yarn [68]
Starting into the 3rd chain from the hook, dc across
Bind off and weave in your yarn tails

ASSEMBLY

Stuff the head and body generously. Place the eyes between rounds 13 and 14 with 10 stitches between them. Sew the nose onto the muzzle and center it between the eyes. Sew the muzzle on neatly and carefully. There is no need to stuff it. Using your black embroidery thread and needle, sew a couple of whiskers onto each side of the face. You can add eyebrows too!
The head and the body both have the same number of stitches in the openings so sewing them together should be seamless. You can position the head however you wish. (ie. instead of looking forward, you might face the head towards the side instead…) Next, position the tail against the back of the body and sew it on. You will need to fill the tail with fiber fill before completely attaching it to the body. Try to center the tail so that your seal can sit by itself without toppling.
Attach the flippers next. Take note that they are symmetrical.
Put the scarf and hat on – you are finished!! I hope you’ve enjoyed making your own baby seal!
