I blocked my towel by wetting it, and laying it flat and smoothing it out on another towel overnight. It measures 13 inches at its longest point (without measuring the hanging loop part)

  3. I have a quick question for rows 44 - 50 and 54-60 and 64-70, am i supposed to alternate the front loops and back loops with the row or not?

  4. Hi Amber! Just follow the special instructions for those rows indicated only, for the remaining rows use both loops of the sc.
