  1. Thank you for this wonderful pattern for Hugger. I did notice that Row 11 - Body is missing. Could you advise what it should be.

  2. Thank you very much and you're very welcome! I have been fighting the sniffles and watery eyes, accompanied by the occasional fit of sneezes, so I didn't notice the missing row.
    The pattern has been corrected and is alright now.
    Thank you Janet for letting me know!

  6. Did I miss it or is it not there? The only thing I see about a tail is about sewing it on. Nothing about making the tail itself
