So I started some lace gloves and I'm using a pattern from a book I bought. The pattern has a "legend" that describes the special stitches required to make the lace clusters. I immediately find myself stuck on the 4th row of the 'back' of these gloves. Ill do my best to follow forum policy, and I use the word best only because I feel like I have to describe a fair chunk of the instruction ( definitely not even cose to all of it..)
It reads as follows:
Row 4 (clkuster lace row): Ch 3 (counts as first dc), sk next sc, dc in next sc (counts as first cluster), *ch 2, sk next 2 sts, work 2-dc cluster across next 4 sts; rep from * across to last 2 stitches..
Now problem is that the instruction on doing the 2-dc cluster across 4 sts goes exactly as follows:
Insert hook in same st as last dc worked, yo, draw yarn through st,yo,draw yarn through 2 loops on hook, sk next 2 sc, insert hook in next st, yo, draw yarn through st, yo, draw yarn through 2 loops on hook, yo, draw yarn through 3 loops on hook.
There is no dc to insert as same st as last dc because it tells me to ch 2 and skip next 2 stitches. I'm soooo confused.
Does anyone know this pattern (ladylike lace gloves from the stitch n bitch book on crochet)?? I'm still pretty new to crochet so I understand that I'm probably doing this wrong for a reaon. If anyone feels gracioyus enough, a video woukd make me so very happpppyyyyyyy. I hope this doesn't seem forthright in requesting
