  1. Hi,, lovely patterns! I’m just starting the soap pouch and wondering if I shouldn’t be chaining 4 before beginning the row of trebles, not 2?
    Thank you!

    1. hello! I am so happy you like the patterns 🙂 and yes you are correct, that should be to ch 4 and not 2 before the first treble and for every row 2 for the squares. I have amended the pattern, thanks for checking it out! Louise
