  1. Really nice pattern. One question: should it be Round 11: knit to end of round instead of Round 17 as stated in the pattern? Then Repeat Round 11 until it measures 7 inches? Someone new to loom knitting and reading patterns will find this very confusing and may be wondering what happened to rounds 11-16.

    Thanks.
