Tape the pattern pieces together and work the pattern in brick stitch. While you can start with any row, I would recommend starting with a row that goes through the buffalo's nose (one of the longest rows). Shape (increasing/decreasing) as needed.
Add straps (strung beads) to the top. I would recommend adding fringe by making a strip of beads a few rows wide and long enough to fit across the buffalo, just across his nose. Stitch this strip to the back, and form your fringe from it. This keeps the fringe in back and really helps the buffalo to stand out.
