    I meant to say 4 corners. On round 2 it says to chain 3, 2dc in the same ch space. Does this mean the first chain of the first ch4 of the first round? Because I don’t see a same chain space. Then it says *in next chain space (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc); repeat from *3 more times in last ch-3 space, 3 dc, ch3, sl to the first ch 3 to join round.

    Round 3: Join color B in corner ch-e space. How is this done? through a link in the chain, or under and around the chain?

    I am having real trouble with Row 2, wondering what chains they are talking about. I think there is one too many as there are only corners.
    I am also disappointed because I clicked on Tutorials and found the blanket on which I am working, but no tutorial (as inferred by the link). All I found was the pattern that I had already downloaded and started to work from.
    This article is not a tutorial, rather it is the same pattern I downloaded with a few pretty pictures.
