    Hi there can you tell me where the marker should be when joining the legs. Back or front? I can’t get the bum in the right place
    • crochetfantasy 2 months ago
      The marker runs along the right foot behind. The photo shows a white thread

  • jay-horn 2 months ago
    I love this pattern he’s so cute, but am having problems joining the legs together as I get a hole in the middle after completing row 12. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again
    • crochetfantasy 2 months ago
      Thank you for your comment! 12 Rnd. it's important: along the OTHER side of the chain
      • jay-horn 2 months ago
        Thanks for your reply. I understand it’s on the inside part of the chain but do you start your 3sc inc in the 2sc you chained? It’s not very clear in the photo.
        • crochetfantasy 2 months ago
          No. 13 rnd starts on the right leg: 3 inc. Then along the other side of the chain: 2 sc. Then 3 increases on the left leg. Further in the description.
