    I love this afghan and have been enjoying crocheting it; however, now that I’m up into the area of rounds 50+ I’m starting to discover several typos and at the end of a round it states repeat from * the number of times however there is no * to be found. It is quite frustrating cause now I don’t know where to start the next side (I have been figuring it out). I had to set the afghan aside for awhile but intend to pick it up again.
