The next step will be more difficult, and involves redesigning part of the pattern.
So far, no one has guessed my exact intentions for this pattern. I have received guesses of a mat, a square doily, a tablecloth, and a box. While it can be made into all of those things, the purpose of this pattern is a little bit different.
All will be revealed in my next post, which should be ready early next week. You are welcome to keep guessing though!
