    Weird WIP afghan

  19. Oops, sorry for stepping on your post Lynn!... I was interrupted in the middle of writing mine out and failed to see yours before finally submitting it. *blush*
  20. Jessica, if this is the very first row following your starting/foundation chain, then the "space" that is being referred to is most likely what is referred to as a "chain" in properly worded crochet patterns ( "in the official language of crochetese" *grin*). So, you would work a dc in each of the chains. Now if their space is actually the chain, as I'm assuming, I just can't see how you'd be able to work a dc into the first one, given the height of a dc (or even a sc, for that matter). You may want to look for a pattern that is better written. Are you first instructed to create a foundation chain of 16? Because that is what I come up with in order to end up with the "14"-count given at the end of your shared Row-1. You typically work your first dc into the 4th chain from the hook, though, when starting out (I find it unworkable to dc into the first ch), and then, in this case, dc in each of the next 12 chains. Those first 3 skipped chains will count as a dc in order to get your total of 14 when all is said and crocheted. On the next row, depending on instructions, be prepared to work in the top of that ch-3. I hope this helps clear rather than muddy the waters for you(?)
  21. Hi Milney, As I have never seen crochet hooks sized in inches ("), I'd take the likely chance that the 3.25 hook that the pattern recommends to be measured in millimeters (mm). Looking at this conversion chart, a 3.25mm hook is a size 'D' by U.S. measures, if that helps at all. Otherwise, use whichever hook that will help you obtain the given gauge in the pattern, if one is given, that is. If one isn't given, than it likely isn't that important for the pattern, and then, perhaps you could use the hook recommended on the thread's label(?).
  22. A most perfect party pig, Peggy! So cute! "The end"
