Or size 10 bedspread cotton

(updated 3-2008: It will round out better if you add at least one more round of dc, preferably two, before you finish off with the sc round. P.S. photo not updated.)

Katy, I am trying to work on this pattern and wonder if someone has tested it for you. I am having trouble with row 3 because there are too many ch3 spaces.

I will try and make another one as soon as my hands will let me. It's been quite some since I've worked with anything this small. Thanks for the heads-upl

I still haven't been able to try this again because my hands have been so stiff. However, I have made quite a few of these and I did it by following my written pattern. When I do it again (as soon as I can) I will do it as if I were someone seeing it for the first time. It's been so long since I made one, it will feel like it is.
