Okay.

If your stitch count is consistently off, try to count out how many stitches you created in the previous round and how many stitches you need to have to make the next round work out. After doing this, it seems you have good reason to be off on Round 3.

If you count out the number of stitches to do Round 3 the way it is written, you will need 168 -- which is 8 more than what I count as created in Round 2. My suggestion would be instead of doing 77 sc, do 73 sc -- this is the number of dc's done in sequence in Round 2. The other adjustment could be do the 77 sc but do 5 sc in one stitch instead of sc in next 5 dc's. A third option is do 75 sc instead of 73 or 77, and then do 3 sc's in the center dc, instead of 5

This is basically a center out afghan design so you will need to do increases on both sides of all 4 corners to get your afghan to grow out appropriately. It may be that the third option would be the one that works best since it shifts stitches around to both sounds of her marker.

If this is a commercially published pattern, you may want to see if there is an errata page for this pattern.
