  1. Such a cute pattern, i love it!!
    I have one question….on round 8, because of the placement of the chain 3 i am coming up with 18 DC’s after it, not 20, and then the 3 before the chain 3 which would make up for the missing ones…am i alone in this or did others come up with the same thing? the stitch count is accurate though so i know its coming out correctly which is a relief, thanks for including that!!
