      I really like the way this pattern works up. But I was having a hard time doing a bpdc after doing 2 dc in the same stitch. So I just switched the bpdc and the fpdc in the pattern. Now I do bpdc first and then 2 dc in the same stitch, and I do 2 dc followed by a fpdc in the same stitch. It is a whole lot easier to do. It looks just like the way you wrote it, but it is easier for me to do.
