Thanks for the warning Irish baby. I did add 2 extra for seaming.
I dont know why I didnt say so in the begining but it has eyelits and I guess thats why Im a bit freaked out and being cautious. Ive casted on three times over several days and keep having such ridiculous problems. It didnt even occur to me to swatch! Ive had such a fit with trying in the round first. I will go swatch. Thanks.
