    Pattern understanding

    Hello, I am crocheting a cape called “The Snow Charming cape. I am not a newbie at crocheting and usually don’t have a problem with a pattern. I am having difficulty understanding how parts are written.Row 3: Ch 2 dc in first stitch,[2 dc in next stitch, bpdc in next st] 11 times, 2 dc in next stitch, dc in last stitch; turn (37 st)This is actually how it is written. My problem is how to interpret the last part of the instructions. What do you do between the two dc in same stitch and the last dc? There are always stitches in between. I appreciate any suggestions.Sincerely Shirley McLain
  2. Hi, me again! After people were so helpful yesterday on my increased I thought I’d ask about decreases today. pattern reads: *dec, 3dc, repeat from * to end (24sts) so I know I’m decreasing from 30stitches to 24, so a decrease of 6. However, I seem to be decreasing much more rapidly... I have read the pattern as: decrease to start, then 3 stitches, followed by another decrease. But this then decreases the round by 10 and not 6.... what am I doing wrong? Am I doing my actual decrease stitch wrong, or am I doing the decrease too soon? see picture for pattern, I’m on round 21, already completed 20 and despite doing it wrong I think I will leave it as is... thanks for any help guys! Visual is very useful for me :-)

    Mermaid Tail Hell

    ​Can someone clarify this pattern for me? I have completed four rows and it doesn't seem to be right. Am I supposed to connect with multiple slip stitches as the piece gets bigger? I'm not sure if I am supposed to be going around and around the piece or working from right to left and turning.... Row 1: Ch 26, sc in 2nd ch and in each ch across. Rotate your work and continue to sc down the other side of the ch, join with a sl st. (50 sc in total) Row 2-22: hdc across (50 hdc)

    Need help reading a pattern.

    Hi everyone I am new here, my name is Ariane, I am fairly new to crochet and I am stuck on an instruction in this pattern I bought, i have tried googling it but I dont get this specific section of it answered. It says "Row 6: chain 2, turn, work a hdc in each stitch all across, work 1 hdc in the top of the chain 2" I understand the first part but where it says "work 1 hdc in the top of chain 2" I am not sure what that means. Any assistance will be appreciated thank you
  5. I am working the Tatiana Afghan Pattern published by Herrshners and am having an issue with row 37. The instructions read as follows: Chain 3 (counts as first dc), dc in next dc, ch 1, sk 1 dc, dc in next 2 dc, ch 1, sk 1 dc, dc in next 2 dc, ch 1, *(dc in next 2 dc, ch 1, sk1 dc) twice, dc in next 2 dc, ch 1; rep from * around. So if a [ represents a dc and a _ represents a ch 1 and skipped space here is what I came up with: [[_[[_[[[[ (with a chain one space in the middle of the four dcs with no skipped stitch. Did I get this right? I am having an issue with my count being off by 5 stitches when I finish the row. I have redone this twice and am losing my mind trying to figure out what I am doing wrong. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,
  6. sc 6 in magic loop - got that one inc in each st around - i do the inc in every sc? sc 1 inc - ? sc 2 inc - ? And so on.....I have an idea of what it would mean but im still confused....I just started crocheting and i cant seem to find anything online that looks like this.
  7. I'm just starting one of my first ever crochet patterns - some Alice in Wonderland inspired fingerless gloves from Tiny Owl Knits, and am confused on the first step! The pattern says "ch 20, turn; Sc in each chain (20 sc)" Shouldn't you chain 21 if you want to make 20 sc on your first row? If not, how do you sc in the first ch from the hook? When I try, it doesn't work properly, and I get a really weird stitch. Any guidance would be much appreciated. Cheers, Sophie.
  8. So, like the little go-getter that I am, I have just started to crochet recently and was anxious to start working on a pattern that I just bought. So far so good- I've been teaching myself the stitches as I go along, usually through YouTube or some online tutorial. I am having a hard time deciphering this pattern however. The abv's aren't too much of a problem as I can look those up, but here's where I am stuck Row 2: 1ch, turn, 1 sc in next 6hdc, 1hdc in next 2 hdc.<-----this part is what I need broken down very simply as my fragile little brain seems to be reading this backwards or completely incorrectly. My name is Sam btw and I'm super excited to have found this site- I'm sure I'll be back often to ask for more help and a big old "Thank You" for all of your help in advance! Thanks, Sam

    Help with pattern

    Hi, This is the first time I have tried to make this pattern and I don't understand the instructions. I posted this about a month ago, but somebody got me even more confused when they misread the pattern, so I put it aside for a while and made the matching scarf. So, now I'm back to the hat. Here's what the pattern says: Round 1: Ch 3 (dc, ch 2, sc) in same ch as joining sl st (counts as first pattern repeat), *sk next 2 ch, (2 dc, ch 2, sc) in next ch; repeat from * around; join with sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch-3---29 pattern repeats. Here's what I've done...tell me if this is correct. I joined my chain to form ring and then chained 3. I did a dc, ch2, and sc in stitch where I joined to form ring. So, next I should skip 2 chains and then to 2 dc, ch2, and a sc? and follow this pattern all the way around and end up with 29 repeats? Does this sound right? Thanks for your help....I'm new to pattern reading and get confused easily. Nance
