Help with pincushion pattern
Hi there!

Working on this adorable Hedgehog Pincushion, but I'm afraid I'm misunderstanding something. I did catch the part about converting from English to American, so am doing sc as opposed to dc, but this part is throwing me off:

ROUND 6. *dc in 2nd stitch from the hook and the next 4 stitches. *repeat until you have completed 1 round.

ROUND 7. *dc in 2nd stitch from hook and next 3 stitches. *repeat until round complete.

ROUND 8. *dc in 2nd stitch from hook and next 2 stitches. *repeat until round complete.

I should also stipulate I haven't crocheted with a pattern in a long time, but to me, those rounds just read like you're completing a round normally, but what I suspect is there's an increase/decrease intended? I really am unsure, anyone have an idea? Thanks in advance!

Happy holidays!!!!!!!

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. - Marianne Williamson

That's confusing. Just by reading, it sounds like you're supposed to skip a stitch but that doesn't seem right.

I suspect is there's an increase/decrease intended
The pattern continues to:

ROUND 10. *dc in 2nd stitch from hook. *repeat until there are no stitches left. fasten off and weave in ends.

I'd say, yes, you are decreasing. I would consider a "normal" decrease rather than skipping a stitch.

I came across the suggestion of using a piece of pantyhose inside a knitted or crocheted piece before stuffing. Just thought I'd pass that along in case you might find it useful.

That's a cute pin cushion. I might have to make one for myself.
