Add some fiberfill if you need to.
Cut the yarn leaving a long tail. Close the remaining hole using a yarn needle: weave in the yarn through the front loops of all 8 stitches and pull tightly.
Hide the remaining yarn tail inside the detail.

Assembling

First sew on the horns. Sew the ears on rows 4-5. Sew the muzzle below round 8 (rows 9-13). Stuff it while sewing it on.
The arms are sewn on rows 15-16. Sew the legs on both sides on rows 26-28. Sew the tail to the back bottom.
Embroider the nostrils (I use the same colour of yarn as for the hooves).

Sew the eyes between rows 8 and 9. on both sides of the muzzle. The distance between the eyes is 6 stitches. Embroider the whites of the eyes.
If you crocheted with some fluffy yarn, use the velcro tape to comb the toy and make it fluffier.
You may add some shadows around the eyes, on nostrils and inside the ears using some dry pastel.
The size of the finished toys made of Drops Alpaca – 7 cm (2,8 inches), YarnArt Jeans or Drops Safran – 9 cm (3.5 inches), Drops Lima – 9.5 cm (3.7 inches).
Little Cow is ready!
