  4. I found this pattern so easy to follow w/ my poor foggy brain! I just have one question: nowhere do you mention ch1 at the start of a new row. Is this intentional or an oversight? I've added the extra chain or left it out depending on what I thought it needed but wld like to know if I need to do it now that I'm at the fins (it makes an awfully tight stitchery w/out it at the start of a new row). Otherwise I'm really enjoying it! I'll post a pic when I finish this FIRST one!

  6. What is the 'sc', 'sl', 'st'. I know the Single Crochet, the Stitch, but what is 'sl'? Is it slip stitch?

  7. When crocheting amigurumi, I almost never ch1 at the start of each row, except at the very start of a magic ring. :)

    sc = single crochet

    sl = slip stitch (I usually write it as "sl st" in the patterns)

    st = stitch

    I hope that helps and I am sorry it took me so long to respond to these questions! :)
