Tuesdays Patterns Week 10

I hope the start of the week is going well.
I've got a little confession.
My Mother-in-law
took us away for a relaxing long weekend.
We got back yesterday.
I'll tell you more about it later in the week.

Don't forge to enter:
Day One Day Two

Now it's time for Tuesday's Pattern

This weeks Pattern is for a Chipmunk

Chip & Dale

Now they do look fantastic!
This is a free pattern
that can be downloaded from ravelry:
The only problem I have is what you are shown isn't what you get in the pattern.
The pattern is easy to follow
except you need to be aware that first st means 2nd ch from hook.
There is a mistakes.
On the cheeks 2 1sc in the next 3 st.
The thing that upset me the most was the parts
that just weren't in the pattern
The back beige part of the eye is in the pattern
but the black and white parts aren't.
Chip's black nose isn't in the pattern.
The feet are different in the pictures of the pattern
to what you get directed to do.
They even show leather at the bottom of the feet which isn't detailed.
The inside of the mouth isn't in the pattern as well.
The fluff on Dales head isn't in the pattern either.

Now overall I think mine turned out ok
but it was just disappointing not having the full pattern
