I feel there may be a mistake in the pattern (though I could certainly be mistaken). When repeating the spider pattern in row 2, line two, the instructions say "... ch 4, sc in next ch-7 sp," but it seems to me that these two steps are too far apart and there should be a step in the middle. Am I correct about this or am I indeed mistanken?

Disregard my previous comment... I think I see where I went wrong! I love this top... I'm making it in hit pink.
