Scarf: pick up three stitches from bottom edge of scarf on one side, and knit as many rows as you like. When you are happy with the scarf length, cast off.

To finish: - make ‘coal’ eyes and buttons etc by taking two lengths of black yarn, tie a granny knot, then tie two more knots on top. Sew this into place, using the ends of the knots, then turn over and tie three granny knots on top of one another for the coal on the other side (remember to make the sewing look good on both sides!)Trim excess thread. Repeat for other features.
Using a little orange, embroider a carrot nose (again taking care that it works on both sides of the cloth.)

Darn in any loose threads.
