Carolina Guzman also has a Facebook Group you can join that helps you with the patterns and offers various discounts on patterns. I was stuck on the ears at one point and I had several people on the Facebook site help me out. Her Facebook group also does CAL (crochet along) throughout the year where everyone can vote on a pattern and work on it together. It is a wonderful group filled with very helpful people.
I made this pattern using my scrap yarn. It is a wonderful project to use up some of that extra yarn you have lying around.
