**Hint**

Each stitch has a post, and then lps as a part of the stitch. The lps are made up of two strands on top and a single strand on bottom.  When working in a stitch you work under the two lps but above the single strand. The trtr leg of this stitch is worked around the single strand.


(Sc, trtr)tog with the first leg in the next st and the second leg worked around the single strand of yarn below the lps of the 12th st of R76.

That wasn't so bad, now was it?


Next week we will continue the faces.  You will be using a modified Catherine's Wheel to build the eyes. 


As usual, please take the time to stitch in all your ends.
