Rounds 56-67 Repeat Rounds 4-7 Twice - is this right? So Round 56 would be rounds 4,5,6,7,4,5,6,7???? Then the following rounds the same? Too long for the pattern? Please help? )

I'm very confused by this pattern. Row 20 - 51 says repeat Rounds 6-9 for 8 times, but round 8 says Round 8-11 Repeat rounds 4-7. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

On round 13 when you finish making 65 chains around is there supposed to be a huge space between there and slip stitching to the beginning chain? Causing it to fold over?

How can I lengthen this pattern? Where is the best spots?

Hmm the copy and paste method works just fine for us. You can also get this pattern on the Red Heart web site and print from there if that's easier. Thanks, editors at AllFreeCrochet

how can I print these directions? I've tried to copy and paste into word, but its just a mess. Any ideas?

Here's what I do to print, it may work for you: Highlight with your mouse what you would like to print. RIGHT click on the highlighted text and a box will pop up, select PRINT PREVIEW a screen will pop up, then at the top change from AS LAID OUT ON SCREEN to AS SELECTED ON SCREEN. Click print and it should work out fine. Hope this helps.
