    this is really pretty but i’m having trouble with the first three rounds. having trouble with it coming up with the right loop number.

    Hi Patricia…the pattern looks a bit complicated especially when you read it..
    Just use a highlighter for the MAIN repeat and sticky notes to hold your place.
    I just made it and this helped me…
    Beautiful pattern too.

    Hope this helps.
