==>Lefties, you will need to switch the arms. Use the left arm on the right side and vice versa when attaching them to the body.

materials:

green yarn ( less than 3 1/2 oz.)
small amount of black yarn
2 wiggly eyes
size "F" hook
yarn needle
fiber-fil or cotton for stuffing (cotton will be firmer, fiber-fil softer)

special instructions:

decrease (dec) = draw up a loop in ea of next 2 sts, yo, draw thru all 3 loops on hook (counts as regular st when counting)
half double crochet (hdc) = yo, insert hook into next st, draw up a loop, yo, draw thru all 3 loops on hook
double decrease (db dec) = draw up a loop in ea of next 3 sts, yo, draw thru all 4 loops on hook (counts as regular st when counting
