We’re going to complete the mask trim first, so we can insert the safety eyes and then continue with the body.

Bottom Mask Trim

In mint yarn, hold the head upside down. Insert your hook in the first front loop of round 7 and continue the following round:
FLO – 6 slst, (1 sc, 3 hdc in the next stitch, 1 sc, 6 slst) x 2 (28)
Cut yarn, fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing. Using the yarn tail, sew a few stitches to secure the curved eye mask detail to the head (see image 1).

Assembly
• Sew the beak to the head over rounds 7 – 9.
• Sew the legs to the feet over rounds 2 – 3.
• Leave the upper part of the leg unstuffed and sew to the bottom of the body on either side over rounds 26 – 28, if you’re making Calypso standing up. Cr sew to the front of the body over rounds 22 – 24 (about 1-2 stitches apart), if you’re making Calypso in a sitting position.
• Sew the wings to the sides of the body over rounds 17 – 23.
• Sew the tail to the tip of the body.

• Using black thread, insert your needle at the back of the head and come out 2 stitches away from the eye between round 6 – 7. Wrap the thread around the eye and insert your needle back into the same stitch. Tuck the thread under the safety eye by gently pulling. Tie a knot at the back to secure and weave in ends.

• Using salmon yarn or thread, sew a line or two under the eye, 2 stitches long to create a blush cheek.
• Sew the mask tie in the middle of the back of the head between round 6 -7.
