I have never been able to follow a pattern to the letter, this pattern has several techniques and suggests alternatives


English terminology

1#. I used lucet cord made with DK, double DK for tail, twisted cord could also be used
2# you could replace with I cord
4# you may use embroidery of magic loop with 6-8 stitches

Tool for knitting legs
5# I put stiches on a thin cord or you could use the chain as a cord to ge the density. The return stiches are also on the same cord
