Fasten off. Weave in end. The rest of the face is worked in rows and each triangle part of the face is worked separately.



Red triangle part of the face (front of face)
Attach Red yarn to one of the flo on the black circle.
Row1: Sc in the flo of next 6 st, ch1, turn. (6)
Row2: 1 sc in every st across, ch1, turn. (6)
Row3: Sc2tog, sc in next 4 sc, ch1, turn. (5)

Row6: Sc2tog, sc in next sc, ch1, turn. (2)
Row7: Sc2tog (1) Fasten off. Weave in end.
Repeat Rows1-7 for 4 more triangles.


Teeth: 
Use DIY Glow Yarn and a yarn needle to sew teeth randomly to the red face triangles. (I find it's easier to add the teeth before I finish the rest of the face. You could always wait until you are finished to add the teeth.)



Tan triangle part of the face (back of face) 
Flip so the back of the face is facing you.
Attach Tan yarn to the blo on the black circle. Making sure that Row1 of the tan triangles lines up with Row1of the red triangles. 
Row1: Sc in the blo of next 6 st, ch1, turn. (6)
Row2: 1 sc in every st across, ch1, turn. (6)
Row3: Sc2tog, sc in next 4 sc, ch1, turn. (5)
Row4: Sc2tog, sc in next 3 sc, ch1, turn. (4)
Row5: Sc2tog, sc in next 2 sc, ch1, turn. (3)
Row6: Sc2tog, sc in next sc, ch1, turn. (2)
Row7: Sc2tog (1) Fasten off. Weave in end.
Repeat Rows1-7 for 4 more triangles. *On the last triangle leave a long tail (60-80 in.) for sewing triangles together.


Finish face by pinning the front triangles to the back triangles and sewing the edges of triangles together with a whip stitch. (Don’t stuff) Fasten off. Weave in end.


Adding Face to Body:
With scrap piece of yarn black yarn sew the finished face to the body. Arrange the face so it sits evenly between Rnds2-10 of the body. Making sure the face is evenly aligned so the booty is in the center back. Fasten off. Weave in all ends. If you haven't already add teeth.
