Beautiful Coral Pattern

"Cast on 116 stitches; if wished for any other purpose, cast on any number of stitches that will divide by 17, and 14 stitches over, to make the pattern correspond at the edges."

Errors:

  • Row 9: those k2togs look odd. The stitch count works (so I've left them intact), but based on the rest of the decreases in that zigzag, they should be ssk (or, as Mrs Mee would write, "slip 1, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over")

Shown with a cast-on count of 48 stitches.
