  3. For the arms and legs do you sc 4 into the magic circle, then 2sc in each st?

  4. Oh wow, I can't believe I left that part of the pattern so unclear!

    I think the only thing missing is the second line of instruction for the legs.

    After "Start with a magic ring," there should be "4 sc into ring."
