    I’m having a little trouble with the “Calla Lilly Doily”…

    Rnd 7: With right side facing, join Green with sc to any lp of Rnd 6, sc in same lp, ch 6, (sc, ch 3, sc) in next lp, ch 6, * 2 sc in next lp, ch 6, (sc, ch 3, sc) in next lp, ch 6; rep from * around; join with sl st to first sc. Finish off and weave in ends.
    Rnd 8: With right side facing, join White with sl st to any ch-3 sp, ch 3 (counts as first dc now and throughout), (dc, ch 3, dc) in same sp, ch 3, sc in next lp, ch 5, sc in next lp, ch 3, * Shell in next lp, ch 3, sc in next lp, ch 5, sc in next lp, ch 3; rep from * around; join with sl st to first dc.

    My problem is there is not enough loops made in 7 to follow the directions of round 8…is it me or is there a problem with the pattern?

      Hi Connie,

      Rounds 2-6 should all have 16 loops. At the end of Round 7, you should
      have 16 ch-5 loops and 8 ch-3 loops. Then Round 8 should have 8 shells.
      Each shell will have been worked in a ch-3 loop. You should also have 8
      ch-5 loops and 16 ch-3 loops.

      There is one correction needed; On Round 8 (at the very beginning of the
      round), after joining the white thread, it should tell you to ch3
      (counts as 1st dc now and throughout), (dc, ch3, 2 dc) in same sp. The
      original instructions say (dc, ch3, dc) in same sp.

      Please let me know if this is not helpful. I will be glad to try to
      explain it differently.
