    Pattern help

    Here is the link to the picture of the owl if that helps...http://www.etsy.com/listing/93328596/crochet-pattern-owl-love-you-forever?ref=af_you_favitem. It is a pattern I purchased so I can't post it. Thanks!

    Pattern help

    Need help understanding what it means when it says join to the 3rd chain. It says this before the pattern: There are a few strategies of how to join rounds in attempts to hide a seam. For this project, ch 1 after joining each round. Crochet first st in same space. The ch 1 will never count as a st for the round and you will always join to the first dc of the round. Then this is the first row in the pattern. Round 1- 11 dc in 4th chain from the hk. Join to the 3rd ch. (See note for joining for rest of rows – Ch 1 and crochet first dc in same space.)
  3. To be honest I am not sure what I was doing (I am a knitter that is new to crochet) but I somehow figured it out...it is turning out great so far...thanks to everyone for the help!!
  4. Or maybe not...I thought I had it all figured out but I keep running into problems. I do well with the first row and then I get all off...one time I was one stich short then the next time I was fine. Then when I got to the next row I was one stick short...and when I do the 2 dc in top of turning chain it just sticks out funny...anyone have any tips or know what I am doing wrong? Thanks! Here is my pattern: Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook, *dc in next 4 ch, dc3tog, dc in next 4 ch, 3 dc in next ch; rep from * 3 more times, dc in next 4 ch, dc3tog, dc in next 4 ch, 2 dc in last ch; change to 1 strand each of B and C - 5 ripples at the end of this row. Row 2: Ch 3, turn, dc in first dc, *dc in next 4 dc, dc3tog, dc in next 4 dc, 3 dc in next dc; rep from * 3 more times, dc in next 4 dc, dc3tog, dc in next 4 dc, 2 dc in top of turning ch; change to 1 strand each of C and D.
  5. Thank you for all of your help...I think I have the hang of it now!
  6. What does it mean to do 2 dc in top of turning chain? Also, when it says chain 3 turn, it just means to turn your work in the opposite direction correct? Thanks.
