  2. Hi goldenjellybean, there is a question in this pattern that I want to ask and I hope you answer it.
    Is the body of Loki really just 8 rows long? The pattern indicated above said 3 rows for cream yarn then change to black yarn for 5 rows. Afterwards, you already have to sew the zipper and close it.
    Second, the pattern for the legs is incorrect. You said that after picking up 7 stitch, you will sc around for 7 rows. Isn’t it that you have to increase around (making 14 st) before you sc around for 7 rows?

    • This is based on the Sackboy character from the video game Little Big Planet. The little characters in that game all had zippers. Some people make these dolls with or without. The ones without usually had a fake felt zipper sewed on. It would be easier to use a short zipper for the doll. Or you can do without it.
