I find it easiest to make the dress on Hollie at this step and then continue the body afterwards. However, you can also make the dress when the body is finished.

Rnds 29-31: 1 sc in each st (48)
Rnd 32: [6 sc, dec] x6 (42)

Rnds 37-39: 1 sc in each st (36)
Rnd 40: [4 sc, dec] x6 (30)
Rnds 41-42: 1 sc in each st (30)
Rnd 43: [3 sc, dec] x6 (24)
Rnd 44: 1 sc in each st (24)

Stuff the body well.
Cut off the yarn but be careful to leave a long tail for sewing the head onto the body.

BOW

Color: 051 Coral
Rnd 1: Ch 20, join into a ring with 1 sc.
Rnds 2-7: 1 sc in each st (20)
Weave in the end from when you cast on.

The finger points at the end that you need to weave in

Cut off the yarn but leave a LONG tail for making the middle part of the bow.
Now, fold the round piece flat leaving the tail in the middle so that it can be wound around the piece and form a bow.

The picture shows how to fold the flat piece.

Wind the tail around the round piece and tighten to make it narrower in the middle part and thus form a bow.

The picture shows how to wind the tail around the flat piece.

Weave in the end thoroughly on the back side and leave a tail for sewing the bow onto the head.

DRESS

Color: 051 Coral

Insert the hook on the back (where the beginning and end of rnd 21 meet) in the front loop of rnd 21. Rhino’s bottom must point away from you and Rhino’s neck towards you. Pull the yarn through the front loop and work 1 sc.

The picture shows where to insert the hook to begin making Hollie’s dress. I did it in the front
loop where the beginning and end of rnd 21 meet and after having crocheted the body
through rnd 26.

Rnd 1: 1 sc in each st (60). When you reach the end of the round make 1 sc in the st where you pulled the yarn through to begin making the dress. This sc replaces the st you made at the beginning meaning that you now have 60 sts.
Rnd 2: 2 hdc in each st (120)
Rnd 3: 1 sc in each st (120)
Rnd 4: [1 hdc, 2 hdc in next st] x 60 (180)
1 sl st in the first st, cut the yarn and weave in ends.

ASSEMBLING

Horns: Stuff a bit of stuffing into the horns. Sew the horns onto the head. Place the large horn between the nostrils and the other one 3 rows above the eyes. Weave in ends thoroughly.

Ears: Sew the ears onto Rhino’s head with 12 stitches in between. Place the ears on the broadest part of the head. Weave in ends thoroughly.

Legs: Put the stuffing into the legs. Stuff the bottom of the leg well and a little less in the actual leg. Leave a small space at the top without stuffing. Place the legs under the tummy. They should point outward a bit. Sew on the legs about 8 rounds from the beginning of the body. Weave in ends thoroughly.

Arms: Stuff the arms with stuffing. Stuff the bottom of the arm well and a little less in the actual arm. Stop nearly before reaching the top. Sew on the arms about 2 rounds from the top of the neck. Weave in ends thoroughly.

Head: The head must point downwards a little. It can be helpful to pin the head to the body first. Sew through the stitches of the body and then through the head. And finally, put some extra stuffing into the neck before closing it completely to avoid a wobbly head. Weave in ends thoroughly.

Bow: Sew the bow onto the head. Place the bow diagonally on the front of the left ear.

Tail: Finally, plait a small tail and sew it on the back of the body just beneath the dress.

Done!
