  • There are some serious errors in this pattern. More rows need to be written out, as the post stitches need to go around the last posts instead of just the row before. maybe rewrite the pattern with a few more rows written out. And I agree as an instructor that this should not be labeled easy.

    I like the cable and appreciate the video. But I’m surprised this pattern is considered “easy”.
