PATTERN NOTES
  Gauge isn't all that important, but your hook and yarn choices should result in a fairly tight stitch so the stuffing won't show through.
  Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round or row indicate the total number of stitches for that round or row.
  Always use stitch markers to mark your rounds. :)
  There's no need to slip stitch and/or chain when going to the next round unless stated to do so.
