Do you have any plans on making a video tutorial for this pattern? I've been attempting to make this but I do not end up with the same number of stitches written in the pattern. I've tried repeating this over and over, yet I still do not have the same number of stitches as yours.

I'm working on this pillow and just a tiny confused about hdc on top of bobble when the note says to skip the chain on top of the bobble. So do you hdc in the bobble?

I just edited the pattern to do the bobble without the ch 1. This is a new trick I learned, instead of pulling through all the loops on your hook when making the bobble, pull through all loops except the last one, you will have 2 loops on your hook now YO and pull through the last 2 loops. This will eliminate the ch1 so you won't have to skip anything, just work hdc on top of the bobble.

Is it correct that the sixth row has no ch 1 at the beginning? Thanks!

how do you have a band around the joining of the sides? If it was joined inside as you suggest what did you do to finish of the outside?

The sc row is worked on the outside. I just edited that part of the pattern. Sorry for the confusion.
