  1. help! hello. on round 1 of the last 2, i can’t get the count on both sides of the center popcorn to be even. figuring 21 st, 1 st on popcorn, and 21 st on other side equals 43, x4 = 172. the previous rows are correct. what am i missing?

  2. Beautiful blanket, but I’m having a bit of trouble with my stitch count on the second part of this week’s pattern. In Round 1 of the second part, after the sc in popcorn and advance to the 2 hdc in ch2 space, you have hdc in sc, hdc in sc, hdc in 3 dc. Is this correct or a typo? I ask because I can only find one sc. I’ve watched your tutorial multiple times and just can’t quite catch my mistake. I’ve also remade the shell pattern part but I’m still off.

    1. Hi! I’m not sure exactly where you’re referring to. The sc (other than the ones by the popcorns) are from the end of the shell rows. Either way, I would just make sure that you have the correct number of stitches on each side 🙂

  3. Hi! I have a question. At the end of part 2, you say do not fasten off, but in round 3, you don’t say anything about it. Did I miss something.
