Love the Starfish pattern but I'd appreciate having a stich count for each row. I've had some problems esp. on Row 13 with 1 extra V stitch at the end. Plus my cap is coming out very large using Loops and Threads worsted yarn. I'm an experiences crocheter and hate issues over a design...Thanks!!WCJ
