Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

What a GREAT job on the pattern. What I really appreciate is the chart that shows you exactly how many stitches you should have at completion of that particular round. This way, you can accurately keep track and randomly check how you are doing and if you are on the right path. Don't you hate it when you've increased too many (lost count of your increases within the round) and when you finish you are left with a ruffly rug?!

Thank you! I'm glad you like the pattern and the chart!
