  2. Hi, this is really cute! I started trying the pattern and I have 2 questions: For the head, row 13 accounts for 22 stitches, not 20. Is this a typo? Also, there appear to be 2 lumps on either side of the head--are these supposed to be where the eyes go? Are they chubby cheeks? I can't see any bumps in the images so I'm a bit confused by it.
