I found an older Lion Brand project sheet at Michaels.  It was for this:

http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/90097AD.html?noImages

Something is wrong with the beginning of the project sheet instructions, so I logged on Lion Brand and figured out what was left off.  Now, I'm moving along, and am confused about this "EASY +" pattern.  For the 6th - 40th round, I'm supposed to "continue in pattern established".  Does this mean 1 - 5 for eight more times?  or is the 6th round "Ch 3, dc in next 3 sts, 2 dc in next st, *DC in next 4 sts, 2 dc in next st, rep from * around, etc.

Or something else entirely?

Much love and will dance at your next wedding for any assistance!!!!

You need to do 12 increases in every round, spaced evenly around the circle. 

I can't tell by just reading the pattern if this is the case, but if you always do your increases on top of the increases from the previous round, then you'll end up with a dodecagon (12-sided figure) instead of a true circle.

If you want it to be as circular as possible, you can move the increases around, always keeping them evenly spaced, but so that they aren't always on top of the ones from the previous round.  This gets easier the bigger the blanket gets. ^_^

So, it's like the ripples, where you add one dc every time you go around the two dc in one stitch?

Thank you!

Okay, so I finished it.  I haven't woven anything in, and it's a king-sized bed.

Thanks for the help.  I really appreciate it!!

I forgot to add that I couldn't find the "bourbon" color Homespun, so I subbed "fiesta" instead.
