  3. At the beginning of every round you say for example: 2sc, sc 4 Do you mean begin round with an increase and then 4 sc in next 4 stitches?

    2. 2sc, sc 4 = 2sc in one stitch, 1sc in each of next 4 stitches.

    1. The main one I noticed when working this pattern was when switching from body to head, specifically round 31. Decreasing around on 48 stitches leads to 24, not 22. This throws off the subsequent rounds until round 34 when you are back to multiples of 6.

      I also found it's better when decreasing the body and attaching arms to not strictly follow instructions, and to instead just put the decreases in his armpits to hide the "seams"

  6. Could you explain round 1 of the arm? I don't understand how to increase it to 12 stitches because I don't see any 2sc's. Also, is the arm crocheted in the round?
