And each round will have 12 more stitches than the previous round. Does that make sense?
ETA - for what it's worth, I've never been very happy with the quality of pattern-writing from Lion Brand. They frequently leave too much to the imagination.
Yep Chris got it. They did scimp on the info a bit, especially for an easy pattern.
