Pattern Has Error!

Darn pattern I'm using to make the toddler 'ghan has a couple errors in it! I'm matching up my stitches and sewing the pieces together and the darned stitches aren't matching up!

After making and joining the first 5 granny squares the pattern says to do 7 rounds but that doesn't work so I had to do 6. Supposedly this situation happens again after the 2nd set of grannies are sewn on. That's where I'm at now so I'll let you know later if I had the problem again. I wasn't going to give the link to the pattern until I was finished but I'll give the link anyway in case someone is making this and running into the same problems. Here's the link.

I can't really blame my slowness on the pattern alone--whenever I work with squares I get slow. Afghans made from squares are one of my favorites to have, just not to make. :)

Anyway, here's the progress I'm made--

I need to get some confidence in myself that when a pattern isn't working out that it might be the pattern and not me. If I can't do that then I need to google for problems before I start frogging the 2nd (or 3rd or 4th) time.

Hope y'all are having some nice weather like we are (low 80s) and having a great week!

Hugs to all my family and friends....
