Special Instructions:  Begin with the first bead as shown and follow the string path carefully around the ears and 3-D arms.  On one strand, lace on 7 yellow beads.  The next steps are done with the other strand.  With the other strand, go through beads marked 1 & 2.  Add on a white and peach bead and make the arm.  Go back through bead #2 (completing the arm) and through beads 3, 4, 5 & 6.  Add on another white and peach bead to form the other arm.  Go back through beads #6 & 7.  On each strand add on a yellow bead.  These beads are marked #8 & 9.  The strand with bead #8, goes back through bead #7.  The strand with bead #9 goes back through bead #1 to complete the row.  Continue with the rest of the pattern.
