  1. Hi

    I am doing the blue tit body and was a little stuck on row 14, I could not understand how to get from 60 stitches on row 13 to 50 stitches on row 14 with the decrease.

    However I have done the inv-dc3tog and then 9 dc and repeated to end to get 50 stitches.
    It was not clear in the pattern as 9 was missing out of the information.

    I think I am right in what I said ! I do not do much amagurumi so any info is great.

    Thanks

    • Hi Caroline, sorry to hear you’re having trouble with this pattern. The decrease instruction to bring you to 50 sts in the pattern is correct. The instruction given (Inv-dc3tog, dc to end) will decrease two stitches on the round. You should follow this instruction for rounds 14 – 18, giving a total of 10 stitches decreased by the end of round 18. I hope this helps.

  2. Can anyone help with the blue tit feet please? I get as far as the 3 front toes but am a bit lost after.

  3. I can’t find the alternative wrist warmer pattern to make instead of the stuffed birds, the magazine says its on this webpage…?
