    Just finished this project this week! There are a few mistakes in the pattern that gave me some problems. Can you revise so others can complete with minimal mistakes? Thanks!

      I agree. There are definitely some issues with the written pattern… I followed the diagram for the star portion and then the rest of the mistakes we’re easy enough to work out. But yes, I agree there needs to be a revised pattern available.

      Could you please tell me where you found mistakes? I’m a beginner at reading patterns and thought I was doing okay until I hit round 6. Im always off by 5 stitches, no matter what I do.

        I actually have made it up to row 7, and then for some reason I just can’t make 8 work. Like you, I find I am off a few stitches. Very technical piece with very difficult yarn, so I am not beating myself up too badly 😉 . I wonder if I am just inserting my hook into the wrong places, which is entirely possible with this yarn, it really buries the stitches since it is so fluffy. Took me a few swipes at 6 as well until i realized the star point count should have had one extra stitch on each side. I think I will give this one a miss – Not that I don’t love it, it is super spectacular, but I think I will put it in the “maybe at a later date with a different yarn” pile.

    I am on Round 16.

    ‘Round 16: Fasten on C to any middle dc in a corner. Ch 1,
    3 sc into same stitch. *Ch 1, skip next st, sc in next. Repeat
    * across. In the middle of 5 dc, ensure you place 3 sc and
    continue * as normal. Continue around in same manner. Sl st
    to the beg sc. Fasten off C.

    But the corners for previous row were 2dc, ch2, 2dc. Does this mean put 3sc in the chain 2 space???

    Otherwise loving the pattern!!!

    Mikey, thank you for doing this. I’m wanting to do Jeanne’s Spectrum Afghan then turn that into a square or rectangle. I’m assuming I can use this same technique? Thanks for all you do!! Hugs! 🙂

    Mikey,
    In the written instructions on Rnd 2 the * to start the repeat is missing. When does the * start on that row? Thanks
