Tofu the dachshund trouble

I’m not sure if anyone else has done this pattern by Rebecca Danger, but I am stuck!!!

The jist of it is, two “legs” knitted on dpns, 16 stitches plus 2 cast on at the end, break yarn…and transferred seperately to a circular, the goal is to start knitting magic loop to form the body, but I don’t know where to start? When I tried one way my stockinette was inside out!! Help!!!

(I did email Rebecca though, just in case)
thanks in advance!!!

Just make sure the RS is on the outside when you start the magic loop, keep the needle tips toward you.
