What advice would you give someone starting this project? Keep referring to the chart, to get the hang of granny square 'architecture'... I also kept a row-counting note by my side to keep track of when to slip-stitch two, and when only to slip-stitch one between rounds, and to make it immediately obvious what row I was on. Oh, and if the yarn tail from the very beginning (at the centre) sticks out at the 'wrong side' (it's reversible once finished, I know - but for purposes of working, there's a wrong side!) then you always know which way round to go i.e. you don't accidentally end up reversing!
