  1. And yes I was trying to get ready for Christmas a little early 🤪
  2. Wow thank you so much for your answers I suspect then that I was going wrong as mine was definitely growing in size. BO is for bobble stitch, here is the rest of the pattern below and a picture of what I hope mine will eventually look like! My bobbles were not central but I am going to give it another practice now. To create the bobble stitch you will yarn over and insert your hook into the next stitch, yarn over and pull through 2 loops on the hook, 2 loops will remain on hook, yarn over insert hook into same stitch, yarn over and pull through 2 loops on hook, you will now have 3 loops on your hook. Repeat this same step until you have 6 loops on your hook (pictured), then you will yarn over and pull through all 6 loops on the hook. Row 4: sc in each st across, ch2, turn (21) Row 5: dc in first 9 sts, bo, dc, bo, dc in remaining 9 sts, ch1, turn (21) Row 6: sc in each st across, ch2, turn (21) Row 7: dc in first 3 sts, (bo, dc, 8 times) dc in remaining 2 sts, ch1, turn (21) Row 8: sc in each st across, ch2, turn (21) Row 9: dc in first 4 sts, (bo, dc, 7 times) dc in remaining 3 sts, ch1, turn (21) Row 10: sc in each st across, ch2, turn (21) Row 11: dc in first 5 sts, (bo, dc, 6 times) dc in remaining 4 sts, ch1, turn (21) Row 12: sc in each st across, ch2, turn (21) Row 13: dc in first 6 sts, (bo, dc, 5 times) dc in remaining 5 sts, ch1, turn (21) Row 14: sc in each st across, ch2, turn (21) Row 15: dc in first 7 sts, (bo, dc, 4 times) dc in remaining 6 sts, ch1, turn (21) Row 16: sc in each st across, ch2, turn (21) Row 17: dc in first 8 sts, (bo, dc, 3 times) dc in remaining 7 sts, ch1, turn (21) Row 18: sc in each st across, ch2, turn (21) Row 19: dc in first 9 sts, (bo, dc, 2 times) dc in remaining 8 sts, ch1, turn (21) Row 20: sc in each st across, ch2, turn (21) Row 21: dc in first 10 sts, bo, dc, dc in remaining 9 sts, ch1, turn (21) Row 22: sc in each st across, ch2, turn (21) Row 23: dc in each st across, ch1, turn (21) Row 24: Grab your wooden dowel and sc around the dowel (21)
  3. Hi everyone, I have only been crocheting for a few weeks and am really enjoying it and am now looking at patterns. I thought I had found a relatively easy one but it keeps losing its shape, and I am trying to understand if I am doing the chain and turn correctly. Everything in my books tells me to start in 4th chain for dc (US) but this pattern is telling me to start in 3rd - is this correct? If so any tips for beginner left handers would be appreciated and I will keep practicing to get there An extract of the start of the of pattern is below - thank you for any help you can give! This pattern is worked from the bottom up. The turning chains at the beginning of each row DOES NOT count as a stitch. 1. PATTERN Ch. 23 Row 1 Starting in 3rd ch from hook dc in each st across, ch1, turn (21) Row 2 sc in each st across, ch2, turn (21) Row 3 dc in first 9 sts, bo, dc, bo, dc in remaining 9 sts, ch1, turn (21) See photo A
