  1. No worries...I'm making the sole of a pair of slippers.
  2. Thank you so much greyhoundgrandma!! :-D
  3. I'm trying to make sense of a new pattern, but wondering if I am off track. Chain 22, Rnd 1: 2 hdc in 3rd ch from hook, 18 hdc, 7 hdc in the last ch, working down other side of foundation ch, 18 hdc, 2 hdc in last st (this st already has 2 hdc in it), join with sl st. (47 sts) I did my foundation chain (22 sts), double-crocheted twice in the 3rd ch from my hook, completed the 18 hdc and attempted the 7 hdc but I'm not sure if I got that part right. Am I just meant to hdc seven times through the exact same ch? This is what I came up with; it made like a minature circle on the end of
  4. Okay, I've attempted the first FPdtr stich, but I'm still uncertain as to what row I'm meant to be in—oh, how I wish there were semicolons in the pattern's steps! As you pointed out magiccrochetfan, Does that apply to all 6 stiches? I attached a picture from the pattern above—the afghan is constructed strip by strip and a border is added afterwards. Maybe I'm wrong, but in the photo it looks like there is an empty row before you see the FPdtr stiches... I've included two pictures of my attempts. The first one show the first FPdtr in the 2nd row, and the next shows my second attempt
  5. Hi magiccrochetfan! Thanks for your insight. I should have clarified that I am comfortable with the FPdtr stiches themselves, I just wasn't certain where these particular stiches needed to be placed—the skipping and coming back (crossed cables) is where I was getting stuck :-) I've attempted it a few times, but was never really happy with the result. The tutorial you shared looks like it is going to be the help I need, so fingers crossed. I am going to tackle it again and share a question if I get stuck! Thanks again for the help, I so appreciate it!
  6. Hi everyone— I'm new to this forum (and new to crocheting!)...I've started a new project and I am having some major difficulties understanding what the pattern wants me to do. The pattern (School Colors Blanket) is a free Red Heart project. The link is below. I get stuck in Row 3: Row 1 (right side): Dc in 3rd ch from hook, dc in each ch across; turn—20 dc. Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as dc here and throughout), dc in each st across; turn. Row 3: Ch 2, dc in each of next 6 dc, skip next 3 dc, FPdtr around the post of next 3 dc, 2 rows below, working in front of posts sts just made, FPdtr
