    There looks to be a stitch count issue with Rounds 30 and 31. I’m ending up with a stitch count of 312.

    It looks to be related to the dc stitches for Round 30. The pattern states it should be 8dc but following the pattern it should be 40 instead

      Yes, you are right. Now it is fixed 🙂 Thank you for your note.

    This is just gorgeous. I’m think I’ll try it for my grandson expected in June. Thank you for sharing!
