  1. Should round 4 be sc, sc, hdc, hdc, dc, (info in parents as is), dc, hdc, hdc? When I first did this round, I did 2 sc together, 2 hdc together, etc because that’s how the previous rounds were written (2dc in round 2 meant two dcs together in same stitch)

    1. Hi Ellen, Thanks for your comment. Did you manage to make one in the end? I’m sorry for the confusion, I will rewrite it so its clearer. I really appreciate your feedback, please let me know if you have any other issues. Happy crocheting!

      1. I was able to make one, thanks!
