Its cute! I'm sure your daughter loves it.
So far all my little critters have the wrong side of the crochet facing out. Is this supposed to happen? Is there a way to do it differently so the right side faces out? Is the wrong side/right side thing going to cause any problems with more advanced patterns?
I actually like the texture of the wrong side and don't mind having it on the outside, but I would like to know whether I am doing it right.
I see what you mean re: wrong and right side. When your piece starts to gather up, turn it so the 'right side' is on the outside. You may need to pull your yarn tail(s) through to the inside, if they're hanging out.
