There is a mistake in the pattern. In Round 4, the pattern neglects to mention skipping a sc for the second ch-3. It SHOULD read: "..[ch 3, skip next sc, Popcorn in next sc, ch 3, SKIP NEXT SC, sc in next sc] 7 times, ..." This will yield 8 popcorns as the pattern states. I whipped out yarn and hook to verify!
