  4. Absolutelu adorable! thought I would let you know your Rnd numbers are off by 3. You miss round 36 in the Momma ghost. I figured you probably copy and pasted so as not to type out the pattern twice...lol. i have done that and had many a error that I get corrected on.

  7. Love the pattern I found some mistakes.
    Papa Ghost: Round 41 to 43, the last sc should be the same number as the fisrt sc : [sc2tog] twice, 13sc, [2sc in next st] twice, 13sc, [sc2tog] twice (36sc) Before the last sc2tog, you have it as 20sc for all the rows.
    Also, you reversed the numbering for row 43 and 44

    The same happens for the moma ghost for rows 36 to 42.
