C portion of Leg is worked in Garter st, B portion of Legs is worked in St st (k on RS, p on WS).
3. Head/Body and Legs are worked flat for ease in knitting.
4. To change color (on Legs), cut old color, leaving a tail of about 4 in.

(10 cm).

Begin working with new color, leaving a tail of about 4 in.

(10 cm).

When knitting is complete, knot tails together on WS of work.
