See below for finishing instructions.
Stuff your pear with fleece until firm while still on the needles.
Break yarn and thread onto the wool needle. Pick up the stitches off the needles onto the wool needle and pull tight. Finish off.
Sew in the ends at the base of the pear. Pick up two stitches with the double pointed needles and attach the brown yarn for the stalk. Knit an i-cord for about an inch and then bind off.
You are finished!
