not coming out, stitch counts are off or something for the third round

Hi Anna,

I double checked the 3rd round and it seems to be correct. I charted the pattern in "rewriting" it and upon checking it again, it's coming out. On rnd 2 you have a sc, followed by a dc, followed by the combo of (dc, ch 1, pc, ch 1, dc) in top of the center dc, followed by another dc.

On rnd 3, you're now working a sc in the sc, sc in first dc, dc in next dc, (dc, ch 1, pc, ch 1, dc) in top of the previous PC, dc in next dc, sc in next dc... rep around.
