VARY IMPORTANT PIECE OF PATTERN IS MISSING!

Today I realized that I forgot to say when to change from grey to white in the pattern.  Oops.  After row thirteen finish off then join with white and continue to the end.

Love the pattern! But on the feet I got lost, were you working around the chain? I winged it by working around the chain and it worked. Also are you just using a chain of single crocheted as the band on the head? I wing all the details as well, was I missing part of the pattern? Either way great job, after winging parts my guy came out great so thank u :0)
