What are you most proud of? The color combination.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't think that this is really hard to do--it isn't! It just takes a bit of practice to get your tension even.

Looks great. I've used this pattern as well.

Lovely pattern and colours. It reminds me of chrysanthemum quilts, but the six-petalled flower in the centre fits even better with that design.

Would someone please consider doing a brief tutorial in the proper way to read the charts that accompany knitting in the round like this? LOVE this pattern and got it started, but am having trouble continuing on as the "blank spaces" on the chart aren't lining up with my work! =( Would love to finish this - please H*E*L*P! Thanks! ;)

Let me see what I can do tomorrow in the way of explaining. Or maybe we can connect in Ravelry (where you will find me as Trudi) and I can try to help you figure out what is going on.

Are you up to round 30? If so, go back and use the last stitch from round 29 as the first of the two slipped knitwise stitches. If you use the last stitch from the previous round as the first slipped stitch each time you need to do a decrease, that should take care of the problem. I hope it does!

Thanks! Just got back on Craftsy and saw your response! Will consult this when I have time to get back to knitting again! :-)
