This birdie is so cute!  I'm just taught myself to crochet about 2 weeks ago, but I think I'm going to try to make some of these as gift-toppers...

I'm really stuck on row 13:

Round 13 - sc next 5st, dec sc, sc next 10sts,  sc in blo of nx 4 sts under tail made on previous round, sc next 4 st, dec sc, sc next 2  (27)

After I sc in the next 10 sts, I'm lost. I think it reads: "Single crochet in block of next 4 stitches under tail made on previous round" Is that right? I don't remember making any sort of tail, I thought I was doing it all correctly, but now I'm lost doh.  Shocked

it says single crochet in back loops only of next 4 stitches under tail made on previous round.  i don't know about the tail thing, but the back loops should help it curve.

this is the cutest crocheted animal ever!  i'm going to make my mom a pair of cardinals for christmas.

now it's my turn to be stuck on round 13.

the pattern says:
Round 12 - sc next 4, dec sc, sc next st, dec sc, sc next 10, (in flo of next 4 sts, work, hdc dc next st, 2dc next st, 2dc next st, dc hdc next st)  sc nx 8 st  (33)

Round 13 - sc next 5st, dec sc, sc next 10sts,  sc in blo of nx 4 sts under tail made on previous round, sc next 4 st, dec sc, sc next 2  (27)

how do i go from 33 to 26 stitches with only 2 decreases?  i think she left out part of that round.  help?

rnd 12  - you'd  work hdc and dc in the front loop of first of the 4 sts. then 2dc in next front loop only and so on.
flo = front loops only
blo = back loops only
hdc = half double crochet - you pull trhough all loops intead of 2 and then 2 more.
I hope this helped
Good Luck
Sara
ps  like the birdie too. Smiley
