Okay, knitpicks responded. Each round has it's own pattern and each pattern is repeated seven times within the round. NOT how I was interpreting the directions AT ALL. I feel really stupid, but don't think I should. I think the directions could have been written clearer. NOW! ONWARD!
Get this silly thing finished, blocked, and pics posted.
As always, thank you for your help. I really appreciate this site and the people here. Y'all have helped me continue to grow as a knitter :D
