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.
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.
