  1. I am confused by rounds 5-8. If you do an increase after 6 stitches would that not mean there are more stitches in the next row? After round 5 I have 7 stitches in between the 2 DC, 8 in the next row?? Am I suppose to skip a stitch to keep it 6 between???

    Thanks!

    1. You continue to increase on each round (5, 6, 7 and 8) along the "increase line". There are 12 of these increase lines in the round - so that means that every row you do increases by 1 stitch between each "increase line", with a total of 12 stitches per round - total count will be row 5 = 60; row 6 = 72; row 7 = 84; row 8 = 96. Hope that makes sense???
