Miniature : Ganesha

Mini Ganesha re-sized version of the larger one...

Miniature Collection... Little Ganesha's Eye are Green beads (3mm to 5mm?)... and probably added an extra row of (sc in all) at the tummy with random inc at the front to give the bulgey tummy look. Though it did not turn out such so below is the default tummy of most of my miniatures.
Previously the Miniature Collection was placed under one page, now it is broken into Individual format. 

Hook Size : B (2.25mm)
Yarn : Acrylic "Nona Brand" (Similar to vanna's glamour lionbrand size 2)

 Note on Abbreviation used often :
inc = Increase
dec = Decrease
sc = Single Crochet
Additional Note : This is not doily, so when it says "5sc inc in all", it means "sc, sc, sc, sc,sc, inc" then repeat it till end of the row) 
The "Magic Ring 5 Chain" is a typo, its just 5mg or 5 magic ring / circle.
