I don't understand the directions for the ears. Rnd 2:2sc in each of next 2 stiches then 2 sc in nextsc (ok that's 6 sc)repeat around (3 stiches left. That would be 12 sc) Total of 9 stitches (no 12)
Rnd 3: 3 sc in next 3 stitches (that's 9)then 2 sc in next stitch (that's 11) repeat around for total of 12 stitches.
What's the difference between a stitch and a sc?
Leg: Rnd3 - 4 sc around (Is that 4 sc in each sc for a total of 48?)

Hi Caroline,
I know it has been a while since you were on here. Guess you moved to Facebook or someplace else.
I had a couple of questions about this pattern.

First, on the Body:
It says - rd.7-16 sc around
Is that decrease to 16 sc around or rds. 7-16?
If it is rds. 7-16 should the next direction be rd. 17 not rd. 8?

Second, on the Legs:
It says - rd. 2 sc in each sc around(12sc)
Should it be - rd. 2: 2 sc in each sc around(12sc)
It says - rd.3-4sc around
Should it be – rd.3: 4 sc around (leave remaining stitches unworked) or is it – rd.3: decrease every 3 st. to 1 sc (4sc)

Third, on the Ears:
It says
– rd. 2 2 sc in each of next 2 stitches then 2sc in next sc; repeat around (9sc)
– rd. 3 3 sc in each of next 3 stitches then 2sc in next stitch repeat around(12sc)
– rd. 4-5 sc around
– rd. 6 sc dec in every stitch around (6sc)
– whipstitch close; pinch slightly at bottom and take a stich to secure so the ear remains puckered.
Should it be:
rd. 2: sc in each of the next 2 stitches, 2sc in the next stitch; repeat around (9sc)
rd. 3: sc in each of the next 3 stitches, 2sc in the next stitch; repeat around (12sc)
rds. 4-5: sc evenly around
rd. 6: sc2tog around (6sc)
‘- fold flat and whipstitch 6 final stitches together as a seam; pull outer edge of 1st and 3rd stitches together to pucker ear.
Thanks for any help you can give,
Pallie
