- The aforementioned, cutting the thread too soon.
- Snipping through a picot while trying to cut off the finishing ends
- Joining to the wrong spot.
- Missing a picot.
- Skipping an entire pattern repeat.
- Running out of thread at the very last ring.
- Hiding ends and having them pull back out.
- Starting CTM so that you don't have ends to hide and then making a mistake at the beginning that you have to cut out so that you now have 4 ends to hide.
