Amirugumi Luma, from Super Mario Galaxy!

I've been wanting to crochet Nintendo characters for a while, and this is my first attempt.
I know there are many amigurumi Lumas out there on the internet already, but not many with patterns available, so I decided to try and make my own.

This is my first time crocheting something without a pattern. I wrote down what I was doing as a went along, so let me know if you want the pattern! See pattern below! Since it's my first time writing a pattern, please let me know if there's anything confusing about it so I can fix it.

Thanks for looking!

I'm new to posting projects on craftster. I don't know how to post a link to the pattern, so I'm just going to paste the pattern directly into this post

LUMA pattern
(from Super Mario Galaxy)

Materials:
Size E hook
Worsted weight acrylic yarn (any color you choose)
Felt (for the eyes, any color)
Glue (to glue eyes onto body, I used Elmers)
Polyfill (to stuff the Luma)

Stitches used, and their abbreviations:
sc: single crochet
sl st: slip stitch
inc: increase.
dec: decrease. This is the same as sc2tog (single crochet 2 together)

This pattern is done in continuous rounds. I recommend using a stitch marker to mark the first stitch of every round.

BODY
Round 1: Ch 2, sc 6 in 2nd ch from hook {6 st}
Alternately, you could sc 6 in Magic ring.
Round 2-3: sc 6 {6 st}
Round 4: sl st 3, sc 3 {6 st}
Round 5: sl st, 2 sl st in 1, sl st, sc, inc, sc {8 st}
Round 6: [sc, inc] 4 times {12 st}
Round 7: [sc, inc] 6 times {18 st}
Round 8: [inc, sc 8] twice {20 st}
Round 9: sc 3, inc, sc 16 {21 st}
Round 10: sc 15, inc, sc 5 {22 st}
Round 11: [inc, sc 10] twice {24 st}
Round 12: [inc, sc 11] twice {26 st}
Round 13: [inc, sc 12] twice {28 st}
Round 14: [inc, sc 13] twice {30 st}
Round 15: inc, sc 7, inc, sc 7, inc, sc 6, inc, sc 6 {34 st}
Round 16: [inc, 16 st] twice {36 st}
Round 17: [inc, sc 17} twice {38 st}
Round 18-20: sc around {38 st}
Round 21: dec, sc 7, dec, sc 7, dec, sc 8, dec, sc 8 {34 st}
Round 22: dec, sc 6, dec, sc 6, dec, sc 7, dec, sc 7 {30 st}
Round 23: [dec, sc] 10 times {20 st}
*At about this row you may want to start stuffing the Luma
Round 24: dec around {10 st}
Round 25: dec around {5 st}
Fasten off, leaving a length of yarn. Finish stuffing the Luma and use the length of yarn to sew the Luma closed.

APPENDAGE (make 4):
Round 1: Ch 2, sc 6 in 2nd ch from hook {6 st}
Alternately, you could sc 6 in Magic ring.
Round 2: inc around {12 st}
Round 3: [inc, sc] 6 times {18 st}
Round 4: sc around {18 st}
Fasten off, leaving a length of yarn to sew appendages onto body. Stuff appendages and sew onto either side of the body, and to the bottom (to make hands and feet). Use your best judgment on where exactly to position them where they look best.

EYES:
Cut two pieces of oval shaped felt for the eyes (in this instance I used black). Then cut 2 much smaller pieces of felt (I used white) for the pupils.
Glue them in place.
