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.
Hi all - I am hoping one of the experts on this forum will be able to assist me with deciphering the Snowflake Apron pattern from Red Heart I have worked my way through row 3 of the skirt. – row 4 is where I am stuck - ROW 3: Ch 5, dc in first sc (ch-5 and dc counts as V-st),* sc in next ch-2 space. V-st in next sc, repeat from * across, turn. ROW 4: (slip st, ch 1, sc) in first ch-2 space, *V-st in next sc, sc in next ch-2 space; repeat from * across; turn. Problem 1 – following direction in row 3 there were no ch-2 created in this row. Problem 2 there were no V-st instructions given - do I use the V-st instructions from the previous row? Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
Hi everyone...long time, no see, lol. I've been busy making chemo caps and it took me a while, but I finally got the hang of making a simple beanie. However, NOW, I promised my two nieces I'd make them hats and scarves and what they want is a slouchie beanie and I have no idea what this pattern means. I don't understand what it means when something is in parenthesis and when it's not. I thought I could do this because the pattern says it is "easy". Can someone please interpret these two rounds into plain English for me?: First I made a chain of 87 and joined with slip stitch to form ring. Rnd 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. Rnd 2: Sl st to first ch-sp, ch 3, (dc, ch 2, sc) in first ch-sp,(2 dc, ch 2, sc) in each remaining ch-sp around; join with sl st in top of beginning ch. Repeat last round until piece measures 11" from beginning. My biggest problem is I never learned how to read patterns. My nieces really have their hearts set on this cap, so I would really appreciate any help. Thanks, Nance
