What am I doing wrong? On Round 3, I do have 18 stitches as indicated, but if I follow your instructions on Round 4 doing 2 sc in every stitch, I will have 36 stitches, not the 24 indicated. Then, on Round 5, if I do *3 sc and 2 st*, I will have way more than the 30 indicated. I find the same problem with all the different sizes.
