@redrosesdz I turned to this site for help and didn't find your reply very helpful. The only difference between levels 1 & 2 are a basic color change in the pattern.
I understand you have looked at the book but have not bought it therefore I'm surprised out believe you know so much about it. The book actually doesn't build on skills. It actually suggests on page 8 that if you are new to crochet to "try on a level 1 or 2 first" and you do not "need a degree in anything to make a level 3 animal." And nowhere in the book does it explain how to accomplish the steps I'm inquiring about hence my motivation to post the question here. Your suggestion that I must "find it in the book" seems false and impossible.
If I could make a suggestion, you might want to resist the urge to reply to a post if you cannot assist with an answer.
