    1. Hello,

      For this portion you roll up your pant legs to the round where you single crocheted in the back loops (round 36). Then insert your hook into the middle stitch of your back, in the back loop of round 36 and single crochet in this stitch, then sc x 24. This should now give you 25 single crochets in this round. I hope this helps :)

    1. Hello Ani,

      This is the sequence for Round6....
      Rd6: [Sc x 2, inc] x 9, sc (37)

      So you will [sc, sc, inc] nine times which brings your stitch count to 36, then you sc which will take your count up to 37. If you have anymore questions just let me know :)

      Thank you,
      Jackie
