I am excited about the release of the Hobbit and I love this pattern!!!

I completed the head, body, tail, but I have been struggling with the legs.
Front legs Row 6. I cannot figure out how to get to 5s. First stitch get 2 stitches, then reduce (2nd & 3rd sts), then add (4th stitch). What happens to the 5th and 6th stitches? I have the same question for the back legs round 4.

I am new to crocheting. If anyone can please help, I will be grealty appreciative.
