When you are done, you will have a figure “8” shape.

R21-sc in each stitch around, mm
Add eyes and begin stuffing, the more stuffing the better…don’t be shy with it. You want the finished hear to be firm to the touch.
R22-*sc2tog, 1sc in next stitch*, repeat from * around, mm
R23-sc in each stitch around, FO leaving a tail
Finish stuffing and use the tail to sew the hole shut tight.
With scrap black yarn, add a simple v-shaped smile!
