Leave yarn attached. 

Connect jaws to begin body:
Seam cast on edges of upper jaw and lower jaw closed closed. 
Place jaws with wrong side of fabric together. 
Pm, and begin knitting in the round. Knit 2 rounds even. Pause knitting to line the insides of the jaw. (see figure 1) Place all stitches on a long piece of scrap yarn for the time being.

Sew lining into mouth: *only if using knitted teeth and lining
Open mouth flat, so that right side of the fabric is facing down. Center lining so that cast on edge is centered with lower jaw. I recommend placing pins at the sides and lower jaw to keep it centered while seaming. Using the long red tail, and mattress stitch, seam lining into place. (see figure 2)

Rows 22-23: Work in pattern. 
Bind off using CC1.
 Grump Sweater:
For the back, stitch counts are wrong. When shaping for armholes, the stitches should be 52(56,62) not 54(58,64). Then, after 2 rows of stockinette, it should read K1, K2tog, K46(50,56) ssk, K1. 50(54,60) sts.
For the sleeves, if you cast on 30sts as suggested for the medium(3-4 size), you’ll end up with an uneven 2x2 rib (there will be 4 knit sts at one point where you join in the round). Make sure to cast on a multiple of 4 (either 28 or 32) and add/subtract an increase row later to compensate for stitch count.
Save the Yetis Scarf:
Row 13: K2, (p2, cross 1 L, cross 2 R, cross 2 L, cross 1 R, p2) 17 times, k2.
Row 17: K2, (p4, cross 2 L, cross 2 R, p4) 17 times, k2.
