    It seems to me that row 2 needs an added DC at the end and row 3 needs an added SC at the end. I tried making it but for there to be an uneven number of stitches in the row, you cannot just repeat an even number X amount of times….you need to plus one to make it uneven. Am I missing something? Thank you for the pattern though. I used 31 stitches to make it a little bigger. It is a wonderful stitch to use for washcloths!

      Thank you for your comment, Susie! Yes, this design should be uneven; ending with one stitch, and beginning with the next, to create an even and textured look.

    In the initial chain 22 add 1. I use this particular pattern all the time. Always use an even number of stitches in your chain plus 1. For example the pattern states chain 22 so use that plus 1 more chain.it should workout.

      Thank you Theresa!

      This particular pattern will only work in uneven multiples; you’ve got to end with one stitch, and begin with the next, and that uneven stitch count will assure you create even edges, and a textured look.
