I picked it up finally to work on the third and joining round to see if I could make some progress on it, and it just wouldn’t work out according to the pattern and the photos. I enlarged the photos to see if I could figure out why not, and had a sneaking suspicion that I had mis-read the pattern instructions.
So I went back to step one and read the instructions over, and sure enough … I was working too many stitches in the second round. Aaarrghhhh!!!
So now I’m frogging the second round, and working on it again, this time with the correct number of stitches. Guess I’m not making much progress with this CAL
Lesson learned …. maybe it’s worth making a complete set of the motif pattern, before working on so many motifs first.
