  1. Thanks for the responses everyone! Your answers helped a lot. I've got one square for this afghan done, 19 more to go. But now that I know what I'm doing, I'm sure it'll go a lot faster! Kathy--I just did the diagram real quick in a drawing program.
  2. Hello, I was wondering if anybody can help me with wording in a pattern. I just started the Candy Corn Afghan from Herrschners. I'm working on my first square. I've got my circle, and the first round to make it a square. I'm having a problem with the wording for the next round. If there is anybody who has made this, I'm trying to understand the begining of row 9. The instructions state: "Sl st to ch-3 center of corner, ch 4, dc in corner" I would guess that you sl st into the middle chain of the chain 3 on the corner, but the problem is at this point in the pattern, you are 3 tr and a chain away from this particular chain. (see below) Sorry for the crappiness of the picture, I just put it together real quick. My hook is at the sl st to join round. I'm not understanding how I get to the middle chain in the corner. If I sl st directly into it, it crumples the square. Does "Sl st to ch-3 center of corner" mean I sl st over until i get to the middle chain on the corner? I tried this, but my corner was misshapen. Would someone be kind enough to explain this to me? I'm confused and afraid that I, once again, spent money on something I can't do. TIA!
  3. Thanks for the comments everybody! I bought the yarn awhile ago when S'nC was on sale at Michael's. The color combo just stood out to me and said buy me! I knew I'd find a use for it someday.
  4. Here are pics of my first finished project that wasn't an Amigurumi. The pattern is from the April 2008 issue of Crochet World. The pattern calls for nylon, I couldn't find it so I used Sugar'n Cream in summer splash and hot green.
  5. I've got a stupid question to add to this. When you join each round with a slip-stitch, do you count the ss as a stitch on the next round? The first few rows of the project I'm working on come out right when I skip the ss and chain, but once I hit the 3rd or 4th round, I'm off by a stitch, even though in the previous round I had the correct number not counting the ss or ch. I've re-done these rows too many times to count and they still come out the same.
  6. I'm going to dig this up to say thank you for your explanation. I just started my first joined round project a few days ago and I've frogged it about 10 times now because I kept adding unwanted extra sc's every round. Being able to see your pictures helped me conquer my problem. Thanks a lot! :)
  7. It looks very classy! All these bags I'm seeing makes me want to get to work on one of my own.
  8. Very Nice! I love the colors.
