So I decided on my edging for my playmat. It will be points like a sun. The picture above shows part one of the edging. There is a second row needed to complete the look.
I started the edging not knowing what my stitch count was beforehand. As I was trucking along, I started thinking that part one of this pattern is done in repeats of 7 stitches.
tr, ch 1, tr
I stopped and did a count… I’m at 200 stitches. That won’t work for multiples of 7. I have to work a few more rows so I can work the edging correctly. I think my rows increase by 8 each time. I will have to count and check when I finish the next row.
I sure do wish I had kept track of all this when I started! I think I have learned my lesson. We shall see…
Note to self: Keep track of stitch count.
