Since I'm still not that great at looking at a picture and figuring out what stitch it is, by SC do you mean:
"insert hook into chain, yarn over, pull through chain, yarn over and pull through both loops on hook"

I always get nervous that I'm going to make something following US abbreviations when it turns out I should have been following British abbreviations...

Thanks a bunch for sharing your pattern for such a cute little guy! I think I might try to make one out of some chenille that I have (or pick up some white chenille) to make a baby seal (since they are just so cute and fuzzy).

that's really good since the ringed seal of Saimaa is a very endangered species.
