I've been crocheting for a while, and I've recently started giving amigurumi (basically crochet stuffed animals/things) a try. I've been able to do balls and variations, but I bought a kit to make a sloth. I'm having a lot of trouble understanding some of the instructions.
I'm really stumped on this step (please note, that at this point I've made two small, separate legs, and this part will be joining these legs as I make the body. One leg if fastened off, the other is NOT fastened off):
"Rnd 11: Join legs as follows: Ch 8, sc around the 9 sts of first leg, working in ch 8, sc 8, sc 9 sts of second leg, working in front loop only of ch-8, sc in next 8 ch - 34 sts."
I'm really lost on what to do here. I know what single crochet is, what stitches are, how to only work in the first loop, but all these small details are lost on me, so I don't even know how to start.
Here's a pic of the finished product, I'm working with the two bottom legs, which will be joined and continue to form the body:
Could anyone provide some more details? The instructions for this kit aren't very detailed...
