    turn-18 sts

    @magiccrochetfan : Aaah thanks, I had never seen that "turn - 18 sts" before in a pattern, @Granny Square : Oh the graphic helps! but then when I get to the end of my chain at the beginning, at the slipknot, how do I have to switch to the other side of the chain to make the sc's? Do I just go over?

    turn-18 sts

    Hello, So I'm making a hood for a blanket, and the beginning is easy, ch 9, 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and in next 6 chs, and 2 sc in last ch, But then I have to work on the opposite side of the chain, and sc in each of the next 7 chains. The opposite side of the chain, does that mean that I have to start from the slip knot? And the row ends with turn - 18 sts. I don't understand what the 18 sts means here? 18 stitches... of what? where? in what? Also, am I to assume that this pattern goes in circles if I have to work on both sides of the chain?

    Magic circle or ch 4 to make a ring, ring ch 4- 3 dc

    Hii! So I managed the magic circle (yaaay) and I've started the second row, but I don't understand the brackets? Row 2: Ch 4, 3 dc in ch 1 sp, ch 1, [3 dc in ch 2 sp, ch 2, 3 dc in same sp], ch 1, [3 dc in turning ch, ch 1, 1 dc in same sp] change to colour B, cut yarn for weaving, turn. I've done the Ch 4, 3 dc in ch 1 sp, ch 1, but now for the 3dc in ch2 I don't know what ch2 is supposed to be? Also I don't know why it's in brackets. (clearly I'm having difficulties with the chains ) Thanks for your help!

    Magic circle or ch 4 to make a ring, ring ch 4- 3 dc

    Oooooh now I see! Thank you, it's so much clearer now I'm gonna practice making your version first then, before trying my pattern. Thousand thanks for your help

    Magic circle or ch 4 to make a ring, ring ch 4- 3 dc

    I bought the pattern so I don't know how much I'm allowed to post on here, but: Row 1: Magic circle or ch 4 to make a ring, in ring ch 4, 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, ch 1, 1 dc, change to colour A, cut yarn for weaving, pull ring tight, turn. Row 2: Ch 4, 3 dc in ch 1 sp, ch 1, [3 dc in ch 2 sp, ch 2, 3 dc in same sp], ch 1, [3 dc in turning ch, ch 1, 1 dc in same sp] change to colour B, cut yarn for weaving, turn. I'm already stuck at the first row so I haven't even begun to decipher the 2nd row. The picture below shows what the first 4 rows should look like.

    Magic circle or ch 4 to make a ring, ring ch 4- 3 dc

    Hi! So I got to the same point as your picture (thanks it helps so much!), but my tail is on the right side (I don't know if that's important?) And from here I'm supposed to do "in ch 2, 3 dc, ch 1, 1 dc". Which is why I'm confused about the chains??? And the final result is supposed to look like 2 triangles (with the 3dc) with the magic circle in the middle. Normally these patterns come with a video but not this time, and I haven't found any other video that doesn't immediately stitch in circles to make circle pattern... I'm sorry if I'm so slow, it's the first time I'm using a magic circle (I've only made square patterns so far which required V stitches and shell stitches with double crochets and nothing more complicated that that.)

    Magic circle or ch 4 to make a ring, ring ch 4- 3 dc

    Thanks a lot! I think I understood, So I start with a magic circle, then I chain 4, but I chain through the hole of the magic circle, and then I can start with my dc in ch 4 and 2? Since I have so few chains, when I'm done with the 3dc in ch4 I'm completely unable to find all the other chains, Is there a trick for that?

    Magic circle or ch 4 to make a ring, ring ch 4- 3 dc

    @Granny Square It's not a free pattern, but it says: Magic circle or ch 4 to make a ring, in ring ch 4, 3 dc, And then I have to do another stitch in ch 2. So my trouble is that if I chain 4 and then I do 3 dc in ch 4, I can't find ch2 for the next stitch. And if I do a magic circle, I don't know what the ch4 is in which I'm supposed to do the 3 dc. Oh and it's in US terms. Thanks!
  9. Hello, I'm starting a new scarf project, and I have to begin with this pattern, I have no idea what this means, do I have to do a magic circle and chain 4 or only one of the two? Also, If I only chain four, and I immediately do 3 dc in my ch4, I get completely lost and can't find any of the other chains, how do I keep up which chain is which in a circle? And if I only do the magic circle without the chains, how can I possibly do 3dc in the 4th chain if there are no chains to begin with? This is all very confusing Thanks for your help!

    Hello!

    Hi there, I have of lot of free time these days so I thought I would start a new hobby, that was last Wednesday and one week later I'm 15 balls of yarn into a blanket project. I never knew how therapeutic crochet would be to me, but it's so much fun and I'm feeling super creative discovering all the new stitches and possibilities
