  4. A bit confused. At the beginning of the pattern it says the ch 3 does not count as a stitch but then it's treated as a stitch throughout the pattern and if you disregard it as a stitch and then do another 10 DC's then your repeat doesn't come out evenly in round 4. Is the ch 3 counted or not counted? Thanks!

  5. Hi I do not know how to read patterns, but I decided to try this one. I got confused by a couple of things: why not center the joints in the back instead of off center and I ended with 9 rows to be able to have 4 chains in th front. Any help please?

  6. Because the seam up the back makes more sense in the center of the head, and the butterly should be off to the side when worn, not in the center of the forehead. That's all. You are free to do it however you prefer. ;)
