    1. I found this from another lady that made these. She did the following :
      round 7: ch2, DC in first 7 sts, FPdc in next 3 sts, 2 FPtr around center 2 stitches of owl, FPdc in next 3 sts, DC in next 25, sl stitch in top of ch 2 to join round.
      Round 8-9: repeat round 4

  3. Count on round 2 doesn't add up to the 40 stitches. Only 24 stitches left after last 2 fpdc. Also, are you counting Ch 2 a dc?

    1. I was wondering if you could clarify a couple of the directions in this pattern for me please? For rounds 7-9 it says repeat round 4 2 fptr under center sts of owl into, dc in next 3 sts, dc in next 25. Sl st in top of ch2 to join round. Do I repeat round 4 for rounds 7 & 8 and then do the rest for round 9? Or do I repeat the first part on round 4 and substitute the rest in place of the directions in round 4 that are in [ ] for rounds 7-9? Also where it says 2fptr under center sts of owl into What does this stitch go into??? To me it seems like something is missing to finish that step out. I was trying to make these for my daughter but I am completely stumped on what to do. Any help is greatly appreciated. My email is tnhottie025@aol.com
      Thank you.
