Anyone have this book? It's a vintage 1959 "Learn How Boook" by Coats & Clark with instructions on how to knit, crochet, tat and etc. I am STUCK on their stupid doily pattern! Here it is on Ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/doily-with-treble-crochet/people There's no pattern or info on it there at all. I specifically am having trouble with Row 22!! EDITED- Round 22: ch 4, tr in joining, *2 tr in next dc, ch 4, 2 tr in each of next 2 dc (ch-4 sp made); ch 3, (sc in next loop, ch 9) 3 times,sc in next loop, ch 3. Repeat from * all around. I don't get where the ch 9 chain is supposed to end up?? In the next available loop (space)? I think I just answered my own question by writing it out and seeing it with fresh eyes apologies- is the answer to end the ch 9 with a sc in next loop? because that is what I think it is// I feel like a moron because now it looks so simple. I often completely fouled it all up as I was trying to read it out of the book and do the rounds, then would get the different rounds confused and mix up the pattern! Oh nO! Had to "un-do" rows and start over. This is taking me for Ever to do. Sighs thanks in advance ps I am a beginner and I do know how to read abbreviations, but sometimes I feel like something is missing from the written out patterns. I don't have any body except internet and books to help with my crochet. PS again I find this site was VERY helpful in reading patterns: http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/tip_crochet.html aside from all this mess if you have links to patterns that do not take TOO LONG I would appreciate them. I can make dish cloths scarves etc easily without using a pattern even so plz no more "do dishcloth pattern its easy" Plus I want more "adult" patterns not stuff a child would make. I like doilies, those I make for other people none of it is for myself. i have all the crochet websites bookmarked, but none of them state how LONG the patterns basically take TO make. I have the link to the "Five Hour Doily" too. I crochet fast even though I am a noob, and do know all most used stitches and have access to learn others. I understand everyone is different speeds but at least a basic "This takes about 25 hrs for exp. crocheter" would be a help. anyway sorry so long
