Special Instructions:  Begin the pattern with 4 pink beads for the first row, then add an extra bead to each strand. Continue with the pattern in the usual manner. Make the pigtails after the last row of the hat by adding on 5 pink, 1 white, 1 pink and 1 white bead onto one strand and going back through the first 5 pink beads. Repeat on the other side with the other strand. The last row of the dress and shoes are done by adding 7 pink beads onto one strand and one bead on the other strand. Using the strand with the one bead, go through only 6 of the beads on the other strand. Add 5 brown beads onto each strand. Go back through two brown beads and 3 pink beads on each side. Tie knots.
