    I loved this but I had a question..when you areskioping the 5 treble on round 11 how do you do that properly? I went behind them and when I finish the steps I have a hole in back of the flippers..?

    • Kati

      I would recommend pulling the stitch before the flipper tight, and working the next one tight as well. There will be a tiny hole, but I have found that it is not big enough for stuffing to get through.

      If you still feel the need, you can stitch them closed while you are sewing on the tail. If you just thread the yarn up through the body, you won’t even have to add another step. 🙂
