Perimeter not closed

Hi when tracing a piece in pattern design 
this message comes up
 “perimeter not closed” so it won’t allow me to continue with this function. 
How can I correct this?

    Hello @SZAS
    This typically happens using the Trace function if not all traced lines connect or intersect, meaning that somewhere in the line selection process (User Input Prompt: Select perimeter line(s) to trace), you have skipped a line to trace or the system otherwise cannot connect all traced lines.

    Can you provide a screenshot of the error occurring with the piece you are tracing in plain view?
