Errata for this Stitch Pattern:

This pattern was originally published with errors. The color repeat in the 3-color version was inaccurate, and has been corrected.

There was also an error in the turning chain for row 3.

Row 3 Correction: Ch 3, turn.

Skip the first sc; the turning chain counts as the first dc. Dc in next sc. (Ch 1, V-st in next ch-3 space.) Repeat sequence in parentheses all the way across the row. When you get to the end of the row, ch 1, then work 1 dc in each of the last 2 sts.

Row 3 as Originally Written: Ch 2, turn.

Skip the first sc; the turning chain counts as the first dc. Dc in next sc. (Ch 1, V-st in next ch-3 space.) Repeat sequence in parentheses all the way across the row. When you get to the end of the row, ch 1, then work 1 dc in each of the last 2 sts.

For some crocheters using some fibers, a turning chain of 2 stitches could actually work well here; perhaps even better than the 3 I am recommending. So if you've already made something using the pattern as originally written, don't automatically feel like you need to rip it to fix this. It might not need fixing. As Maggie Righetti points out in her book Crocheting in Plain English,(compare prices) crocheters all make chains of different lengths. She advises her readers to "make any turning chain as long as it needs to be to look good." (page 69.) I have lived by her advice, which I think is wise, and I'd advise all crocheters to do the same. Having said that, I do think for most crocheters a turning chain of 3 stitches will work better here.

Please accept my sincerest apologies for any inconvenience these errors may have caused.
