Waffles Puppy is worked seamlessly from the top-down starting at the top of the head. Short rows are used to shape the forehead and nose. The ear placement is marked and they are picked up and knit on to the head. The body is picked up on the underside of the head and is worked down. The arms, tail and leg placements are marked as you go. All appendages are then picked up and knit on to the body. The custom-fit Hoodie Cardigan is worked separately and seamlessly from the top-down.
