Hi. it's me again. Rnd 2. Last 4 stitches. I have re-done Rnd 2 4 times and I still keep coming up with 6 stitches at the end. I tried crocheting into the turning change, frogged it and tried the next stitch (as the pattern stated) and I still keep coming up with too many stitches left over at the end of Rnd 4. I also counted to make sure i had 33 DBL crochets on 1st row and my count is correct. I can't for the life of me figure out what I am doing wrong. It's not like I'm new at this. I've been crocheting for 45 yrs.

ok, I changed it to 35 chains, I think that will give you the one extra you need in row 2,
