Where to join yarn in Round 10.
Some people joined with invisible join and cannot find the first stitch of the round. I usually say to join to the first stitch of the round or the first stitch of any increase for ease of directions, but since the last two rounds had no increase stitch it is a little tricky.
So let us join to the third stitch to the right of the stitch that goes into the fpdc. Line it up over the increase in Round 7. There is no increase in 8 and 9 which makes it tricky but go to your first st of the increase in 7, move your finger up to 8, then to 9. It’s the 3rd st to the right of the stitch that goes into the fpdc. Thanks to Brittany Perrin for this photo:
If you start Round 10 in the wrong stitch you can adjust in Round 12. Round 10 is even, Round 11 is an increase round with 2dc in one st, dc in next 7. Once you get going in Round 12 you can easily see if you’re in the wrong place and you can adjust.
Round 12 can get a little tricky; read the directions carefully. You are increasing in this round, and also placing the post stitches a little off-line. Reading from right to left, each repeat consists of a fpdtr around the fptr below in Round 8, then you skip the st behind the post, sc in next 2, fptr around 3rd of 7 sc below in Round 9, DO NOT SKIP, sc in next 3, fptr around 5th of 7 sc below in Round 9, skip the st behind the post, sc in next 2. So each repeat contains 3 post stitches and 7 sc for a total of 10 st, x 12 repeats is 120 st. Remember, you only skip behind 2 posts. This is how the increase is made. 2 sc, 3 sc, 2 sc.
