  1. I figured out why my first attempt came out like a sausage rather than a round hedgehog: I was doing a “single crochet decrease,” “single crochet increase,” “double crochet decrease,” and “double crochet increase” in a different way from what the gal does in the video. I ended up watching the video at half speed to see how she did the decreases. The way I first did it made it bulkier and added more stitches to those rounds. That explains my hot dog.
    Her way is much slimmer. The video was very helpful!
