  1. Rnds 13-14: Ch 4 (counts as first dc plus ch 1), sk next dc, *dc in next dc, ch 1, sk next dc; rep from * around, sl st into 3rd ch of beg ch-4 – 90 dc + 90 ch-1 sps. Rnd 15: Ch 3, dc in next ch-1 sp, *dc in next dc, dc in next ch-1 sp; rep from * around, working 2 dc in every 4th sp, sl st into top of beg ch-3 – 210 dc. I am so stuck on Rnd 15. I am not getting 210 dc at end of round. I definitely have 90 dc + 90 ch-1 sps from previous round. I think the problem is where to start putting the 2dc in every 4th space and my spacing. I don't think the pattern is very clear and should have been written with more steps. I have tried in the 4th stitch from start and the 6th stitch from start I do not get 210 dcs! Is every 4 space mean 1 2 3 4(2dc here) 1 2 3 4 (2dc here) leaving a gap of 3 which actually looks like every 5th if you start counting from where and including the first 2dc is but every 4th if you don't include the first 2dc Or 1 2 3 4(2dc here) then counting the space 4 as space 1 and then 2 3 4 (2dc) here leaving a gap of 2 which actually looks like every 4th if you start counting from where and including the first 2dc is but every 3rd if you don't include the first 2 dc I am so confused and have even tried drawing it out and doing the math. 90 ÷ 4 = 22 r 2 What happens to the 2 left over? I think they must join to the 2 spaces at the beginning to make 4 but where do I put the 2dc? 90 + 90 + 22 + 2 = 204! Rnd 16: Rep Rnd 13 - 105 dc + 105 ch-1 spa. 105 is half of 210 so the pattern must be right but just not written very well or I'm getting my wires crossed. Help!!!!
  2. I have been crocheting for quite some time now but every now and then I still need to look up for example how many times I have to yarn over for a specific stitch. Mostly, because I work German and English patterns and I just get confused with the names. That's why I wrote the free Alexa Skill My Stitchionary This skill quickly reminds you how to work a given stitch. It even knows the most common abbreviations of stitches in various languages and tells you it's according name in English. This saves yourself the hassle of searching for the term, reading through lengthy articles for beginners and searching long videos just to find the relevant ten seconds. I have also started doing Amigurumi but I got tired of counting the stitches. Especially, when it's time to increase or decrease the number of stitches evenly. That's why I wrote this free Alexa Skill Stitch Counter I prefer this over a stitch marker because in small rounds it annoys me to take it out and place it newly and sometimes I simply forget to place it. With Alexa you can count hands free without needing to stop crocheting. I hope you like it. Feedback is very much appreciated!
  3. Hi all, I was wondering if anyone can help me, my lapghan is a chevron stitch, 160 and 10 peaks, I do it in 7's and I am at the end of a row and it comes up short by one, I redo and start one chain over and it ends in 8 what am I doing wrong!
  4. I started crocheting this little tomato but at the end of the round its been equaling wrong. rnd 2 ch 1, sc 1 in same space as prev. sl st, [switch to cream yarn, inc in next st, switch to red, inc in next st] 3 times, switch to cream yarn, inc in next st, switch to red, sl st close round {15 sc sts} when i finish the round i end up with 16 not 15. what am i doing wrong?
  5. My biggest problem since I began crocheting a few months back is getting the right amount of stitches in my work. I'm constantly having to pull out rows of stitches because I get to the end and I'm either over or short one stitch in my count. I would like some help clarifying any rules that exist that may help me get better at ensuring I have the proper amount of stitches, for example: If a pattern tells me to ch 1 at the beginning of a row, does that automatically mean that I need to skip the first stitch closest to my hook and proceed to the second one over? Does that "ch 1" always take the place of that first closest stitch space? Some times when I get to the end of a round and have to slip stitch back to the first stitch in that same row, I have trouble deciphering which the first stitch actually is. Should there always be a one-stitch worth of space between your last stitch of the row and the one you're slip stitching to, or at other times should the one you're slip stitching to be immediately following your last stitch in the row? Also, if you've already ch 1 at the beginning of the row, do you make sure to skip that ch 1 space when you slip stitch at the end? Do you ever slip stitch to that ch 1 you originally made? When counting stitches, you never count the loop on your hook, correct. . .? I hope that made sense. . . Any other tips anyone can offer would be appreciated!
