  1. What is the name of the pattern? What book is it in? If they left out the description of patt, there may be an errata from the publisher we can look up.
  2. You don't have to add a border if you don't want to. A lot of patterns don't include one.
  3. Wow that is really pretty! I love the stitch patterns you used.
  4. He's cute! The toes turned out well

    Hi Granny Square! Alison, please tell us the name of the pattern, because seeing a picture of it would really help. i wonder if we are all reading it wrong, or maybe I should say it's just not clearly punctuated. It could be that you work until you get to the chain space. Then you chain, not into the space but just into the air. Then you do the dc, ch3, dc, all INTO the chain space. Then you make another ch in the air and make a dc into next stitch. They just didn't express it very clearly.

    To me also that doesn't make sense. What is the name and location of the pattern?
  7. You're very welcome Do let us know how it turns out!
  8. for reference, here it is on Ravelry https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/huggable-baby-yoda it does say you can just leave off the bobbles and just make the leg plain, so that is an option. what i would do--assuming the bobbles themselves went ok---is I would just go with what you have, work the 5sc, and continue the leg rounds with 16 st. If it were me and i didn't like the way the bobbles looked, i probably would just leave the toes off and make the legs plain.
  9. It looks to me that it uses eleven sts, so only five left over. So I agree with your results. what is the name and location of the pattern?
  10. yes that does sound like a typo. I'm curious now, what is the name and location of the pattern?
  11. There are apparently two sizes for this pattern. The first number would be for the first size, and the second number would be for the second size. When it says zero, if you are making that size you just don't do that part at all. So if you're making the first size, you start by doing a tr in next 75 sts. I hope that's clear. Do ask whatever else you need to.
  12. Hi, Granny Square On the diagram at first i didn't notice this, but after a while i thought it is working left to right because of the placement of the sl st relative to the ch3 that starts each round. if you worked right to left, the sl st would be to the right of the ch3, but on this it looks like it is to the left, to me. I agree about the many variations of starting places for the rounds in granny square patterns and that this could be worked in either direction---one would just have to adjust a bit for l-to-r as it would'nt look exactly like the diagram. At least that is how it looks to me 😉
  13. It seems to be the same as what you did to start the back, you make the bottom ribbing first and then work up from there. did you fasten off the back piece? Each piece is made separately, then you seam them together.
  14. The symbols look pretty standard to me. The sort of lozenge shaped things are chains, usually they appear as ovals. The construction is a little unusual as far as beginning of each round. It looks like the image may be flipped, or is intended for left handlers who work from left to right. There are tons of Granny pattern diagrams, we could probably suggest some that are a little more standard. Do you need to use this one particularly?
  15. I agree with Granny Square's post. i wondered if it is something like this https://hubpages.com/art/crochet-a-square-and-make-a-cute-bunny-rabbit where you make a square then fold and stuff it to shape the bunny. Found that by searching on ravelry using key words bunny and square, https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/search#craft=crochet&query=square bunny&sort=created&view=captioned_thumbs&page=2 You could also add the word Granny to that to search a bit differently.
