I love this pattern and am looking forward to having a go at tapestry crochet.
Is there a visual for the first couple of lines of the pattern - I seem to have gone wrong and can't figure it out. I've checked the number of stitches (80) which is correct but when I get finish the round it I'm a few stitches out. Has anyone else experienced this? It's my first time with tapestry crochet so its very possible I've done something wrong!
