I am confused..My froggies body is smaller than its head! Why does this happen do you think? Anyone?

Head Row 8 Decrease 1 sc over next 2 sc Pull up loop in 1st sc, then pull up loop in 2nd sc, then yarn over and pull through all loops = 1sc the number at the end of the round should be 12 Head Row 9 sc in next 4 sc, then decrease over next 2 sc the same as you did in row 8 you will end up with 10 sc Hope this helps

i'm having troubles with row 8 making the head. what does decrease 1 sc over next 2 sc. if you know please let me know. am making this for my grandson.

I'm confused. When making the head, what does DECREASE 1 SC OVER NEXT 2 SC MEAN? This is in round 8. I've already started making this fella and I'm stuck at this point.
