Mouth: With yarn needle and 2 strands of D held together, embroider a chain stitch smile beneath the carrot nose.

Scarf: The scarf is longer than needed to reach around the basket, the ends are supposed to overlap. Before beginning, decide where you want the overlapping ends of the scarf to be. Carefully pin scarf in place around basket just above scalloped lower edge. When happy with the scarf placement, sew the top and lower edges to the basket leaving the overlapping ends loose. After edges of scarf are sewn to basket, gather the 9 sts of the first overlapping row on each overlapped end to make it look like the scarf ends have been tied together.

Weave in any remaining ends.
