  1. I would really like to make this but am having trouble following directions and probably need some minor interpretation. For instance:
    Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic circle (6).. Is this 6 sc and join with slip stitch to makecircle?
    Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (12).. This sounds like 2 sc in each sc.. makes sense
    Rnd 3: sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around (18)... Not sure how you get to 18 stitches here. Is it sc in 1st sc, and then 2 sc in each of next 11.. which would get me to 23 stitches, not 18... I have similar questions for the next few lines, so I figure I'm reading this wrong.
    Once I figure out how to read I'm sure the rest will follow as it looks like wording is similar. Please respond asap; we have a special needs child entering our family who adores Blues Clues. Thank you.

    1. for round 3, it's 1 sc in 1st sc, then 2 sc in the next sc ( as stated), then you repeat the process. So it's 1 sc, 2sc in next, 1 sc, 2sc in next....and so on. Until you reach the 12th stitch. That means you should increase every other stitch. You'd be adding 6 more stitches to the original 12, which would total to 18 stitches.
