    Hi Marly! Thanks so much for this awesome tutorial video! I just wanted to say that I think you are missing a row in the written directions. In the video, you do 6 hdc after the row with the thumb. That’s not in the written directions and it definitely looks better with that extra row in there. Thanks again!
