Free Troll Doll Crochet Pattern

Notes:
CH = chain
ST = stitch
SL = Slip Stitch
SC = Single Crochet
DEC = Single Crochet DECrease
I did all this with an D/3-3.25mm hook
Work in Rounds when I say “row”, do not turn,
it’s best if you have markers and move them to the last stitch in each round so it’s easier to count.
Also note, some of my counts are off on the repeating * rows, just finish with whatever SC count gets you to the marker, and place the marker on the new SC.

1. 5 SC in a circle
