Appendix 1: Round 4 Images
On commencing Round 4, a Beg DC2TogCl will be worked in the FLO of the first stitch from previous round (location as per arrow in Image 1).
A DC will then be worked in the BLO of the same stitch (location as per arrow in Image 1).
When these stitches have been completed these should appear as Image 2.
The stitches that the Beg DC2TogCl are composed of are shown (i.e., DCStndSt and DC).
When the round is completed, it should appear as per Image 3.
Every stitch from the previous round will have a DC2TogCl in FLO and a DC in BLO.
As such, the stitch count is doubled in this round.
