*Option for different size doll*

If you would like to make a smaller Grinch doll, why not, down-size your hook, or substitute SC for HDC in your body, then shortening your arm and leg length!

For a larger doll, my suggestion is to up-size your hook, make sure you do this for each different size hook used in the pattern =)
