Thanks for your question! I

Thanks for your question! I checked with our tech editor and this is her response:

The directions are correct on Row 4 within the brackets:
[sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc in next sc] 3 times.....

The diagram is also correct.

Each repeat begins with an sc and ends with an sc, that is why there are 2 sc next to each other in the diagram.

[sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc] [sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc] [sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc]

Error in He Loves Me Pillow Pattern

As I was browsing through the pattern instructions for this pillow, I noticed an error in the directions inside the brakets on Row 4. It should read: ". . .[sc in next sc, 2sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc] 3x. . ." According to the diagram, the 3rd stitch direction within the brakets should be to sc in the next 2 sc, not 1.
