    Hi there love this pattern - I’m just slightly confused by the claw section of pattern. Row 2 & 3: Rnd 2: *dec, sc in next st* (9 sts). Rnd 3: *dec, sc in each of next 2 sts* (12 sts). If I Follow the pattern for row 2 I only end up with 5st not 9st. At first I thought it might be a typo so I inc instead of Dec - which got me the right number of st but looked far too round and not pointy like your version. Any help/ explanation would be most appreciate! Thanks
