    Help! I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong, but I’m not coming up with the same number of double crochets in the first row of the first corner triangle. I’m coming up with 24. All of my other row counts have come out correctly up to this point. How are the dc2tog stitches counted? Are they counted as two dc? Thanks!

      Hi Vicki 🙂 the dc2tog should count as 1 st. Hope that helps!

    Isn’t it cool that we’re all working on the same pattern but they all look different? Thanks for putting this CAL together Kara.
