The pattern seemed quite straight forward.
And, for the most part it was.
But, I learned from a podcaster that there were tweaks that could be made...
...to make the square "squarer"
and the edges tidy,
making it easier to pick up the stitches evenly along the edge.
If you slip the first stitch in each row
and knit through the back loop on the last stitch, you get a nice "beaded" edge
that shows you just where to pick up each edge stitch.
So, while it was hard to start over once again,
I think, in the end, it will be well worth it.
