This is sooo cute! I'm not quite finished with mine yet but I think I'll have to make more as my girls love it! One tried to make one too but was not ready for the instructions and tight stitches. Will be making more Amigurumis for sure!! Thank you for this!

That's right, chain 1 doesn't count as a stitch

 

Feb 2, 2011

Hi Spirit, we checked with the designer and here's what she said: Ch 1 (doesn't count as a stitch), skip 2 sc, sc in next 8 sc, sc3tog (that equals 1), sc in next 8 sc ...that comes out to 19 stitches, you do that twice = 38 sc. Or (2 + 8 + 1 + 8) x 2 = 38. Hope that clears things up.

You have to know how to crochet to make this. The instructions are not right starting at row 15. I tried it 7 times and the instructions state you end with 38 stitches, impossible. You start with 42, skip 2 sc 2 times so you just lost 2 stitches and you sc3tog 2 times so you lost 4 more stitches. It is cute though. I would recommend doing the hair in 3 different lengths and make 5 or 6 chains. I did the 4 in the same length, still cute, and tied them in place.
