      Hey Maggie…how do I add a picture to my profile…I am not fond of being a generic dude LOL..

    this is really pretty but i’m having trouble with the first three rounds. having trouble with it coming up with the right loop number.

      Hi Patricia…the pattern looks a bit complicated especially when you read it..
      Just use a highlighter for the MAIN repeat and sticky notes to hold your place.
      I just made it and this helped me…
      Beautiful pattern too.

      Hope this helps.
