Feel free to sell any items made from this pattern, but please do not claim the pattern as your own. Thank you! If you find any errors, please let me know! :)


  1. first, the rows 6-12 do no seem enough so i put in a lot extra to get the desired length. second, i am very confused with the legs!

  2. I think there is a typo in the pattern. Where it says Rnds 6-12 should repeat Rnd 4, I believe it should say to repeat Rnd 5 instead. Rnd 4 is an increasing Rnd, and yet it says Rnds 6-12 should all have 24 sts.

  3. How do you get 12 stiches in round 2...shouldn't it be like 9? So do you make a magic circle with 8 or do I just keep single crochet, double crocheting until I have 12?
