    I’m stuck! Just about to start the head and I don’t understand the instruction. K Inc in next 2 st to send 50 St’s?

  2. The instructions could be better and it would be nice to have some make up instructions too. I was not sure how the head should be finished so I made a little bobble hat for mine. It looks really cute.
