  1. Just a note on instructions, round 9 is all dc’s, then Rd 10 says to work a SC into each sc.
    I’m enjoying making this lovely square.

    Hi Charlotte
    Thank you for letting me know about that error – I do apologize for that.
    I have edited the pattern and I have added a photo to help as well.

  3. Round 6 isn’t adding up for me. I have 2 extra stitches from round 5 between corners if I do it as written. I have to skip 3 when I chain 1.
