  2. The pattern from the arm skips from round 4 to round 8, what about rounds 5, 6 & 7?

  3. Hello, thank you for this lovely pattern. I agree with the comment above, though the mistake is not in arms but legs :) There also is a mistake in ears: RND3: (sc in next 4sts, 2sc in next st) rep 3times. (15) shouldn't it be sc in next 3sts, 2sc in next st? Otherwise it is not possible to make 15 :)

    I would like to ask if it is possible to explain how to make the RND1 in body and legs, I tried few times and it didn't work :( Could you make a visual aid or sth like that. Would be very grateful :)

  4. hi, I really like it and thanks a lot for the pattern but do not understans the last row of the head cover:
    sc in first 5sts, dc in next 5sts, hdc in next 3sts, sc in next 15sts, hdc in next 3sts, dc in last 5sts. (36)
    what means "DC" and "HDC". I started doing it so will be great if you let me know as can't finish it. Thanks
