I've only knit this up once, writing the pattern as I went along. Originally, I had stitch count totals for each round, but according to some test knitters, they didn't add up correctly with their counts. So they are left out from the final pattern.
You're more than welcome to share this pattern, print it, store it, and of course knit it! I would please appreciate a link back to this post. Thank you!
Let me know if you have any questions. I can be reached here in the comment thread, or via ravelry on it's pattern page.
P.S. I'l be adding a PDF file soon!
