It works fine when I do it on my end… is it possible something on your computer needs to be updated (adobe, java???)

I’m confused on the patterns for the fat-bottomed leaves. For the medium, we have 8 sc, but then the next row seems to indicate stitching into 9 different stitches. How does that work? Also, in the row after the sc’s, do we chain for the first sc or stitch an actual sc?

Lorene April 5, 2014 at 4:27 pm

sorry about that, there was an extra sc in there. I updated the pattern. You do not chain for the first sc, just make an actual sc. Thanks for letting me know! Hope it works out well for you! Please let me know if you have any further questions.
