    Hi. Thanks for this tutorial. I don’t know if someone has already mentioned it, but in your first
    ‘Cobble Stitch’ row you say ‘continue with half treble and double crochet’ to the end!
    Sorry if this is a repeat of someone else’s email or if I got it wrong.
    Looking forward to many more of your tutorials.

      Thanks Andrea for pointing that out. I’ll take a look at the video to see if I’d already written it in the description. Sometimes I go to say something and something completely different comes out! Haha. Sorry for the confusion. I hope the written instructions make it a little clearer 🙂
