Right leg

Attach the yarn to the 11th stitch (that’s on the side of the body)and crochet 10 sc. In the next stitch you’ll find a stitch marker. Remove it and crochet a sc. Go straight to the next marker, remove it and crochet a sc in that stitch. Crochet another 9 sc. You’ve reached the first stitch and have crocheted 21 single crochets.
