Hey all, I am working on my first ever written pattern. I've been doing crochet for about a month now. In my pattern it says: dc9, (dc2tog) 3 times, dc 9 (22) I understand how to double crochet and how to do a decrease stitch I just don't understand weather I do 9 dc then do 3 dc2tog then dc 9 again??? Thanks
Hello, I have been attempting to understand the instructions for the first row. When I complete the row I still have about 3-4 chains left. It also states the beginning and end should have 6 double crochets, but my count comes to 5 dc in the beginning. can anyone explain what I’m doing wrong? https://cdn.accentuate.io/4824296882269/12378270040157/LACY-WINDOWS-SHAWL_M20313-POL-v1607369001365.pdf
Hello, I am a bit new to crochet, and a first time poster. I am reading a pattern from a book called "Woodland Crochet", and the instructions for the shell do not seem to match up with the amount of stitches I think they should produce. I haven't made it past Rnd 1 for the shell, but I made the head and legs of the tortoise without any trouble: " ch 6, start in 2nd ch from hook Rnd 1: sc, 3sc, 3sc in next ch, 3sc, 2sc in next ch" Already, I end up running out of chains to work in; I single crochet 4, then increase by 3 in the 5th chain, and I have no room to increase by 2. I have assumed that sc and 3sc are both normal single crochets since the pattern describes 3sc in the next ch in the same rnd. Sorry if this question is a bit long but I've had no luck trying to figure out this pattern. Thank you!
Hello! I'm new in the crochet world and need some help understanding patterns. Up to now, I have been following video tutorials for beginners with some degree of success. Now I am trying to work with written patterns. Can you explain me what the instruction: Rounds 5-7 (7, 9, 9, 11) means? Up to this round everything was going fine. Thank you for your help.
