PATTERN NOTES

Numbers in the brackets in the end of each row/round indicates the total sts you must have in the end of every round.

When the number is written in front of the stitch you must make this number of stitches all in next st, if the number is written after the stitch you must make it in all next stitches indicated by this number. For example : 3sc,ch2- it means make 3 sc in next st, ch2. If it is written with the number after like this sc3,ch2– it means make sc in next 3 sts, ch2.

Fill the legs while you crochet along. It will be easier for you and the filling will be more even. Stuff well the legs. When we continue on body fill it as well as you crochet along .

The pictures are with different color yarn, but you keep crocheting with the colors indicated on the written instructions.
