    crocheting a shawl (help!)

    You guys are so kind, thank you for responding! I DID manage to get the correct 39 sts on row 3, but row 4 is what's confusing me. It's so frustrating when a pattern seems to be 'off'- I really wanted to make this shawl for my sister- she loves peacocks (so the title if fitting with the colors). http://bluestarcrochet.blogspot.com/2018/07/the-peafowl-feathers-shawl-free-pattern.html Again, thank you very much for responding!

    crocheting a shawl (help!)

    I've been crocheting for 15 years now and usually can figure out a pattern, but this one is really baffling me. I can get the correct amount of double crochets up to round 3, but on round 4 I keep coming up short on stitches. (This is a UK pattern, so the treble is actually a double crochet.) Any help would be greatly appreciated! Start pattern by creating a magic circle. Rnd 1: 3 ch (counts as 1 tr throughout the pattern), 4 tr, (3 ch, 5 tr) twice, 3 ch, sl st to top of beg 3 ch to join. 15 tr Rnd 2: 3 ch, *1 tr in blo in each st across until next 3 ch-sp, (2 tr, 3 ch, 2 tr) in next 3 ch-sp; rep from * around, sl st to top of beg 3 ch o join. 27 tr Rnd 3: as Rnd 2. 39 tr Rnd 4: 4 ch (counts as 1 tr + 1 ch-sp), miss next tr, [ *1 tr in next, 1 ch, miss next tr; rep from * across until next 3 ch-sp, work (2 tr, 3 ch, 2 tr) in next 3 ch-sp, 1 ch ] rep around, sl st to top of beg 3 ch to join. 57 sts Rnd 5: as Rnd 2. 69 sts Rnd 6: as Rnd 2. 81 sts Rnd 7: sl st to next st, 4 ch (counts as 1 tr + 1 ch-sp), miss next tr, [ *1 tr in next, 1 ch, miss next tr; rep from * across until next 3 ch-sp, work (2 tr, 3 ch, 2 tr) in next 3 ch-sp, 1 ch ] rep around, sl st to top of beg 3 ch to join. 99 sts Rnd 8 & Rnd 9: as Rnd 2. 123 sts Repeat Rnd 7- Rnd 9 for pattern 7 more times.
