    Hey,
    Sorry to ask but is the first section to form the head supposed to be a magic ring?
    Thank you

      Hi Rebecca

      You should start the head by chaining 11 and then you will work your way along the chain; however instead of turning your work you should continue working on the other side so you are working in rounds

      Hope this helps

    The definition for double double crochet (dc) is incorrect. It should a single crochet (sc). Unless there is a difference for US/CA/EU terminolgy. I started this project using a proper double crochet (dc) and realized this was incorrect fairly quickly.

      Hi Izabella a UK double is a US single, it’s the same stitch just different terminology, here is the link to my conversion chart which maybe of use to you:- bit.ly/Conversionchart 🙂

    I was wanting to create this bear for my husband but the starting out chain for the head is unclear. Should it be as a magic ring like the rest of the pattern or is it a chain ring? Also chain 11 doesn’t allow for as many stitches to do all of the ones that round 1 requires.

      I’m sorry the pattern isn’t clear; you should be working along the chain and then continue to work around and into the bottom side so that you create an oval shape
