  1. Lea my stomach is in knots for your situation. If you must go please go early before the freezing rain sets in and stay until the roads are safe.
  2. Do. I do 9 dc then do 3 dc2tog then dc 9 again? Yes. (22) is the stitch count for that row or round. The above will give you 21 stitches so counting the ch 3 that would have started this row/ round you would have 22 stitches. Quote
  3. Well there are tons of horribly written crochet patterns out there so it certainly wouldnt be surprising to find them for Tunisian. I hope the pattern defined the abbreviations for you as there are some I didnt find here ROW 1: (Ttss , Ttks) next st. The ( ) in this case is telling you to put one Ttss and one Ttks in next stitch. Tks 7 (9, 11, 13), in this case the numbers in ( ) are the number of Tks to be done according to what size you are making.

  5. Sorry I dont have the pattern. If this is it there are 152 listings under projects you can look thru that might help. I quickly scanned thru them and didnt notice any comments about round 19. If you arent a member of Ravelry its free to join. I did find a good close-up photo that should help you see whats going on in round 19 and the next few rounds. https://www.ravelry.com/projects/ArizonaStitches/rainbow-set-blanket From what I see round 19 you are forming the peaks by working stitches of varying heights. The next row looks fairly standard for working ripples or chevron.
  6. Well here its 25°, ground is white and its snowing again. The first two dogs of the day wanted nothing to do with going outside. Their MO is not to go out for their owners in bad weather but dh is more firm with them. They know they have to at least pee for him before going back in. Dh also cleaned snow off of his friends (lady) cars. Says its a perk of his dog walking service. Loaded the crockpot up with vegetables and tenderloin. Should be ready for supper. Guess I should make some cornbread to go with it. Working on doll blankets and started a doll dress.

    You should really contact the designer especially if you purchased the pattern. I did some research and found this https://www.ravelry.com/designers/jossa-handmade and https://www.scribd.com/document/536001959/Chloe If this is the designer she has made up her own crochet abbreviations but at least she defines them. Looks like she is trying to use the symbols used in charting crochet as her abbreviations. If BLO 2T V,2( 11T,2TV) is from one of her patterns my guess is she means for you to work what is in ( ) twice blo work back loop only 2T V wo
  8. Mona we are expecting snow early am and thru tomorrow. No sunshine today for us. Its cloudy and supposed to start raining later in day. Hopefully we manage to bypass a freezing rain stage. Dh is bummed out because dulcimer club is supposed to meet tomorrow. They were going to start a series of beginners classes which they havent done the whole time he has gone. Might be a good thing if it was canceled due to snow. We stopped going to church (again) and canceled the monthly lunch with my work friends because of the spike in covid. I am so glad we got out and did so much in Dec.
  9. Waistcoat stitch makes a very dense fabric. If you are having to use more stitches than the pattern recommends then you crochet tighter than the designer. Tight stitches make a dense stiff fabric. Using a lighter weight yarn and or a larger hook drastically changes the drape of crocheted fabric.
  10. Grab the corners and gently pull them a bit into a more square shape. Your stitches might need to be a little tighter which most likely will happen as you get used to crocheting.
  11. Try using smaller hooks. I generally use an H (5mm) or G hook (4mm) but use smaller for amigurumi.
  12. It will be a great asset to have them listed here and something I have wished for so thank you. I have to search for quite awhile to find my link to that site and then search for my password.
  13. Chris you have done an awesome job. I followed darski from her yahoo group to this site because it was easier to find her patterns there since they are all together and broken down into files for each type of doll.
  14. The abbreviations should be defined in the pattern. If not you really need to contact the designer and especially if you purchased the pattern. You can do a search for pattern with designer name and sometimes find info. Sometimes looking at the photo helps. We dont have enough info to guess what it means.
