I love this book. This is the first book I've picked up recently that found several projects to get to quickly. Even had the perfect yarn for the Basalt Tank.
I am making the smallest adult size (cast on 188) and I'm doing fine up to Row 26. At the end of row 24 I had 17 stitches in each section. The pattern, page 18, first group - actually all of them - say to Repeat row 2, which is a decrease row, but to maintain 17 stitches per section.
Should the pattern say repeat row 7 or should it be a purl row. If I purl, it would create a garter stitch, which is what the pattern looks like.
I do hope you get this quickly! I'm eager to get moving. The top is really going quickly!
