16 row bean-fed...Jupiter spot?

One of planet Jupiter's most striking features is its big red spot. Longer than three earths, this storm has raged for over 1/2 a century and is somewhat of a mystery. A mystery much like these spots on this 16 row bean-fed. I have noticed these hole features appearing on the last few sling projectiles and am wondering if they are consistent artifacts of errors in the crochet pattern. After all the pattern is merely an approximation of a sphere and perhaps the non-perfectness of it produces these holes of mystery.
