  1. What does this mean: "Chain 3 double crochet in single crochet directly below." I get the chain 3 but, is this just another way of saying "double crochet in the same stitch?"
  2. The pattern is "All-Occasion Tote" from the Lions brand yarn website. This is what the stitch is. 1 dc/rf Work 1 dc around stem of next st 2 rows below, inserting hook around stem from right to left to draw up loops. This is what I'm having trouble with. Row 3 and every odd-numbered RS row Ch 1, turn; sc in first sc, 1 dc/rf, sc in next sc, 1 dc/rf, sc in each of last 2 sc. There are six stitches in each row.
  3. I'm trying to start making baby booties but, I don't understand what "working in free loops of beginning chain" means.
  4. In my dream I'd got it in the mail and pulled out all of this weird stuff. I pulled out a cd of Christmas music, a greeting card... I know that it sounds weird but, I always have weird dreams.
  5. I had a dream about this giveaway last night.
  6. I don't think that it was me either. I live in a town but, I was home at 2.
  7. I'm trying to make my first sweater but, this is just not making sense to me. RIGHT SLEEVE: ch 23 (23, 25). Row 1 (Right Side): Hdc in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch across; turn – 22 (22, 24) sts. Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as hdc), skip first hdc, working in back loops, hdc in each hdc across and in top of ch-2; turn. Shape sides by inc 1 st at each end of next row, then every 3rd row twice, then every other row 8 (8, 9) times – 44 (44, 48) sts. Work 4 rows even, end right side row – 29 (29, 31) rows worked from beg. Sleeve should measure about 17 (17, 17 1/2)". I'm making the large and if you chain 25 and then take away 3 that doesn't make 24 sts. I'm on the 5 time for the "inc every other row" part but, I still only have 33 sts. That means that when I'm done I'll never have 48 sts right? This is the second time that I'm doing this sleeve and I really don't want to do it a third.
  8. I would love to enter this but, every time that I've tried I get an error message that my request to post cannot be completed.
  9. I have a question about the arms. I have 16 sts in rnd 3 but, in rnd 26 I start decreasing. In rnd 28 I'm still supposed to have 16 sts. Was I supposed to start out with 16 sts?
