  1. I think Rnd 3 should begin w/ ch 4, sc in next ch-2 space, and then (5 dc, etc).

    Did I somehow end my Rnd 2 wrong? This happened on my first and second one.

    1. You should be ending the row 2 between the 1st and 2nd clusters, if not, you could sl st into that space before starting the next row.

  2. I agree with KRT, there is a little mistake. I think, that 3rnd should be in this way:
    Rnd 3: ch 1,* sc in next ch-2 space ch1 {5 dc, 3-picot, 5 dc} in ch-5 sp, ch 1, sc in next ch-2 space, ch 4; repeat from * three more times, join with sl st to ch-1.
    But this is very nice earrings. Thank you for your pattern.

    2. Yes, it's just another term for a magic circle. I had to Google that myself.
