After a few practice runs (which required frogging back quite a bit!) I had a go with some thicker green yarn to practice the actual techniques required for joining the legs and starting the body. It turns out the body is very much like a sock as it requires more stitches at the bottom (e.g. the heel of a sock) to get the body to bend and sit-up. Checking online was most useful to learn how to turn the work! After practicing I had a go with the actual yarn and it’s not progressing well!
