Sorry about the asterrisk, I left one out, anyway, in the loop rounds for the top, just repeat the ch 12 join in end st with slst part 8 times.

Very fun looking project. I am eager to start this, but, I am puzzled by the asterisk in round 1 under instructions for loops. From what point does it originate? I don't see one anywhere before "Repeat from * 8 times around,". Thanks, Barb1240
