Tip: don’t start this project at night, lest you be like me and use off-white yarn instead of white. Ugh.

Started over in the daytime with white yarn. Thankfully I hadn’t done too much with the off-white so didn’t lose a lot of time.

I had some confusion when making the patches. It said to dc 8 in the skipped sc of a previous round. I know how to do this, but it didn’t say whether to work in front of or behind the chains made. Originally I started working behind the chains, but that didn’t look right so I pulled it out. I then tried working AROUND the chains, and I think this was the right thing. The pattern could have been clearer on this point. I made 2 dc in each of the four skipped stitches.

Yarn usage is estimated, as I don’t have a scale.
