  10. I've emailed for help. I'm having some trouble with the body. To be fair, I've never crocheted a body from the neck down. But, his neck doesn't seem to fit his head very well.

  11. I love this pattern and how expressive he can be (especially in the face) but I had some difficulty with him. The neck seemed too big for the head when I tried to sew the 2 together, and I had to rework the legs four times before I was semi-satisfied. I think it might help (in the future) if you added HOW you got the three toes stitched together, namely where you started, bc that could greatly effect the way the increases and decreases lay and the overall effect of foot and ankle. My first attempt began and ended on the side of the foot and so the pattern laid completely wrong and I had to experiment with stitch order to make the increases and decreases lay on top and bottom.

  13. Having trouble with the body portion of this pattern can anyone help? I see that it says for round 1 chain 40 but from there I don't see any instructions from how to go from a flat chain sc piece as opposed to crocheting in the round with say a magic ring. Can you please clarify how I make the body round?
