  4. The video really helps in this one, Looking at the pattern starting in round 4 you say Using COLOR B, Hdc in next 2 sts, YO, insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. YO using COLOR A and draw through all loops on hook

    It should say Using COLOR B, Hdc in next 1 ST YO, insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. YO using COLOR A and draw through all loops on hook

    The way it is written it would be 3 stitches in color B and the increase with Color A In the video it is stated correctly though.

    I love this pattern I am making it for the football season in my team's colors :)
