Pattern info:

Please read all the pattern info before starting.

I recommend reading through the pattern before starting.

Most of the pattern is worked in rounds without joining,

The stitches are separated by * , * meaning: if the pattern reads 1sc in 3 sts, 2 sc, 1 sc. You make 1 sc in the next 3 sts then you make 2 sc in the following stitch and 1 sc in the next stitch.

When a series of stitches are repeated those are marked with * following the total number of times that series is repeated, meaning: if the pattern reads *dec, 1sc* x5 you work the following 2 stitches made into 1 sc and then 1 sc in the next stitch, then 2 sts made into 1sc and 1 sc in the next stitch, then 2 sts made into 1sc and 1 sc in the next stitch, then 2 sts made into 1sc and 1 sc in the next stitch, then 2 sts made into 1sc and 1 sc in the next stitch. So you repeat it a total of 5 times.

The total number of stitches you should have when a round is finished is written within brackets ( -)

    This is too cute! I’m working on this and loving it so far. But I’m having trouble with the ears. Line 1 says 6 sc in mr. I assume that means a magic ring. But this results in a circular/cone shape. How did you get yours ears to be long? Can you explain to me more how to do the ears? Thank you so much for help.
