I know several people made this in a crochetalong awhile back but I didn't find the answer to my question. I'm sure it's me and not the pattern as no one made mention of it. But if anyone who has done this pattern could help me out I would appreciate it!
It says to chain 52 and you will be working even on 51 stiches. Well, you skip 2 from the chain to do a hdc so wouldn't that by 50? Anyway, my problem comes when I am doing the petal pattern repeats. I never have the right amount of horizontal and/or vertical petals (16 and 17). Does the turning chain count as one, am I skipping a stitch somewhere ? It usually says to skip the first hdc and go into the next, but I am never ending up with enough stitches.
I have ripped this out 3 times and can't figure out what I'm doing wrong! If anyone can decipher my rambling and can help, please do!!
