  1. This is a very cute and quick pattern. I think there is a mistake in round 5. Round 5: * 1 hdc in each of the first 4 st, 2 hdc in next st.* Repeat from * to * around. Join with sl st to first hdc. Ch 1. Turn. I think it should be *1 hdc in each of theach first 3 st, 2hdc in next st* I tried it twice as written and couldn't get it to work. Doing it this way came out just right.
