  1. Hi! I love your patterns and I just recently started to make amigurumi ^^ I have a question, while I’ve been crocheting the belly for Moomin, I realized that it came out abnormally large! Not at all common for the size of an amigurumi, AND I’ve been following the pattern closely and using a 2.5 mm hook. Is this normal?
    Love!
    Corinne.

  2. Hello I don’t understand the description of making the head of Moomin.
    In round 2 you’ve got only 7 chain but description says to make 4 ch then in 5th 3 ch so we’ve already got 5 chain and then you say to make it twice when I only have to more chain left
    Please help Alex

  3. How is the head supposed to work out? First chain 7. Then slip stitch to work in spirals or just work 4 single stitches in the chain, 3 SC in the next chain, repeat twice??? Either way it doesn’t work for me.
