Legs + Body + Head

Stuff the legs and body tightly while knitting.
Please note that the legs are knitted in different ways!

First leg
Start in red.
1st row: 6sc in mc
2nd row: inc in each loop (12sc)
3rd row: (1sc, inc) * 6 (18sc)
Next, prepare the insoles. Circle the sole on a sheet of paper, cut it out, and make round insoles for shoes using this plastic pattern.
(This toy uses insoles just to seal the sole, the toy does not stand on its own, since the cap outweighs. Therefore, they are not required).
4th row: behind the back wall of the loop 18sc 5-6 rows: 18sc (2 rows)
Insert the plastic insole inside.
7th row: 6dec, 6sc (12sc)
8th row: 12sc
Change the color to green:
9th row: (1sc, inc) * 6 (18sc)
10-11 rows: 18sc (2 rows)
Make Sl-st. Finish knitting, fasten the thread and cut.

Second leg:
Start in red.
1st row: 6sc in mc
2nd row: inc in each loop (12sc)
3rd row: (1sc, inc) * 6 (18sc)
4th row: behind the back wall of the loop 18sc
5-6 rows: 18sc (2 rows)
Insert the plastic insole inside.
7th row: 6sc, 6dec (12sc)
8th row: 12sc
Change the color to green:
9th row: (1sc, inc) * 6 (18sc)

10-11 rows: 18sc (2 rows)
Tie another 20sc along the second leg, but do not cut the thread, but continue knit body. Place the legs next to each other, check that the decreases are straight in front.
12th row: attach the second leg to the first leg where you finished knitting (in the loop following Sl-st), knit 18sc along the first part, then 18sc along the second part (36sc)
At this point, you need to install a marker (marker is in front)
13th row: (5sc, inc) * 6 (42sc)
14-19 rows: 42sc (6 rows)
20 row: (5sc, dec) * 6 (36sc)

Rows 21-22: 36sc (2 rows)
23rd row: 2sc, dec, (4sc, dec) * 5, 2sc (30sc)
24-25 rows: 30sc (2 rows)
At this stage, you need to transfer the marker, for this, knit another 8sc (or another required amount) so that it is exactly on the side, and change the color to white. Now this will be the start of the row
26th row: behind the back wall of the loop 30sc
27th row: 30sc
28th row: (3sc, dec) * 6 (24sc)
29-30 rows: 24sc (2 rows)
31 row: 1sc, dec, (2sc, dec) * 5, 1 sc (18sc)

Change the color to beige:
32 row: 18sc
33rd row: inc in each loop (36sc)

35th row: 3sc, inc, (6sc, inc) * 5, 3sc (48sc)
36-44 rows: 48sc (9 rows)
45th row: 3sc, dec, (6sc, dec) * 5, 3sc (42sc)
46th row: (5sc, dec) * 6 (36sc)
47th row: 2sc, dec, (4sc, dec) * 5, 2sc (30sc)
48th row: (3sc, dec) * 6 (24sc)
49th row: 1sc, dec, (2sc, dec) * 5, 1sc (18sc)
50th row: (1sc, dec) * 6 (12sc)
Fasten the thread and cut, leaving a long tip to pull off the remaining hole.
Hide the tail of the thread inside the head.

Spout

Tie in beige, stuff lightly:
1st row: 6sc in mc
2nd row: inc in each loop (12sc)
3rd row: 6 dec (6sc)
Fasten the thread, cut, leaving a long end for sewing.

Arms

Tie two parts, stuff in the process of knitting. Fill only the lower part tightly, then fill in the middle, you do not need to fill the upper part.

Fold the edges of the piece together, knit 4sc. Fasten the thread, cut, leaving a long end for sewing.
Design and assembly:
Sew the handles symmetrically on the sides, having previously secured them with pins.
Sew on eyes between 39 and 40 (the distance between them is 2 sc), with the same thread sew the eyebrows.
Sew a nose under the eyes.
Next, make a beard. To do this, prepare 19 pieces of 12 cm long from Alize Softy yarn. We fasten them using a hook on row 38 (see photo). I got 7 pieces on both sides of the nose and 5 pieces under the nose (for density, you can add another row below). Trim your beard.
