I ripped a good bit out oh around three times an entire row had to be taken out. What can you do, sometimes my counting was off so I placed the wrong stitch or color in the wrong place. However this pattern was super beginner friendly. Anything that I couldn't figure out I would youtube and that helped immensely. The back is a lumpy mess but it's okay because the front worked out great. This is going to be a Christmas present for my niece as soon as I finish the other two pieces. I'm not sure what to do with the finished project if I should frame it or try to incorporate it into a pillow? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
