    i think there may be an error here toward the end of the pattern? rows 59 and 60 are giving me trouble. row 59 has us repeat *to* at three points, giving us three groups of ch 5 spaces, but 60 instructs to sc around ch 5 spaces four times. im pulling my hair out a little here, would adore a nudge in the right direction
