Quilava



I made a small version of this ages ago (not pictured here--I'll try to take one later), but didn't have the color yarn for the back, so I couldn't finish a normal size. Then of course I got it but I didn't have the material for the legs with me. Finally over Thanksgiving I managed to get all the pieces together and I was able to finish it today (in between working on my Christmas gifts and doing school work, of course ~_^). Hope you like it!

    1. Oh, I think I figured it out. I'm pretty sure there's a typo in rows 13-20, assuming I did it correctly.

    2. Hey! Did you figure out the rows 13-20,im really confused 😊

    3. I did, and I have successfully completed the pattern. I can't quite remember what the typo was, but I think at the end where it says "sc in remaining 6" that 6 should be a 3.
