I have a question about row 12. You say to cast on 104 pegs, but row 12 equals 106 pegs. Am I reading this wrong?
Thank you for your help. ????
Actually it’s 107 pegs. I can’t count. Lol. 90 plus 7 plus 8 plus 1 skip plus ewrap last peg.
Sorry for all the question marks too. Not sure how that happened.
Beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
