    Flowers in a Row... sort of!

    I see what you are thinking with the bunched up stitches..Have to agree there needs to be a sc between the last spot you put a v stitch and the last dc or it seems it would get funky in a big hurry

    only other thing is to just put it in a document to start with if you know you will be jumping around finding links and such and copy/paste when you are done

    I think I read that you want it as long as the person is tall...so for a 6' guy you would want to make is 6' long. So 60" for me would be a bit short as I am 5'6". It would be ok for an older teen or tall kid
  10. the web site posted does use a slip knot. The standing stitch I use I yarn over the hook twice and double crochet from there.
