    Can this pattern be crocheted with regular yarn and not the bulky yarn. Will the measurements be different?

    You have two row 4s and they are not the same, so it isn’t just a repeat. Are the rows miss-numbered or did you mean to replace Row 4 and did not take out the incorrect one?

      I Like Crochet magazine has the best readers! Thank you for pointing out this technical error!
      We have amended the pattern. NOW, it shows the “one and only” correct Rnd 4!
      Sharp eyes & sharp minds…we love all of you!
