Correct

US Version

Correct!

The tablecloth was cut as shown above.

It's a bit smaller, but the new tablecloth looks fantastic, especially with the five four-leaf clovers. And since you salvaged it instead of throwing it out, I guess it's a lucky tablecloth after all.

UK Version

Cutting insight!

The cloth has to be cut as shown in the diagram.

Your little tablecloth accident gave the four-leaf clovers a new lease of life!
