Designer Tip! If you’re planning to embroider the eyes on, it would be easier to do so before joining the triangles.
Joining the Triangles – 2 Methods
Method 1: Slip Stitch Join (my favorite)
Step 1: With right sides facing out, lay your 2 triangles on top of each other.
3/6

Step 2: Locate the centermost 14 or 15 stitches along the 2 sides of the triangles that you edged. With a 4mm crochet hook and yarn of choice, sl st the 2 triangles together.
Fasten off. Weave in ends, glue on eyes(if desired) and enjoy!

Method 2: Whip Stitch Join
Step 1: With right sides facing out, lay your 2 triangles on top of each other.
Step 2: Using a yarn needle and length of yarn 2 times the perimeter of your triangle, whipstitch 14 – 15 sts together from the edging. (whip stitch the stitches shown in orange in the photos above)
Fasten off. Weave in ends, glue on eyes(if desired) and enjoy!
