FATW5 – Extra Rounds Week 8

Week 8 extra rounds for Popcorn Explosion by Kathryn Middleton of AmyJ Designs are available below for the 40sts per side with chain space in corners. We have used this document previously….. so you may have already downloaded it and can use that document.

Don’t forget that these 3 rounds are not a part of the designers pattern. These rounds are part of the Friends Around the World 5th Anniversary CAL. (That is why they are released separately each week…..)

And now on to the important part:
