    Why does pattern say row count 24 put only show pattern instructions up to roll 22? Please reply soon thank you. I would like to put this in a little boys vest .

      Hi Rosie, actually it is a typo. There was a mistake in the pattern earlier, and I missed making this correction. Thank you for pointing it out 😊
      The vest is surely gonna look gorgeous! ❤️
