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
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 ro
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)
