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!
Hi everybody, I'm attempting to make a baby blanket for the first time and I adore the pattern but the instructions leave a little to be desired (at least to me). The pattern works up in a shell motif and I don't have any problems working the rows. My problem is the beginning shell at the beginning of each row. My problem is that my ends aren't coming out looking the same. Some rows are longer than others and some are more pointed and others are more rounded. I can't decide if the Ch 3 is only used in the very first beginning shell or if it's used in each row. I'm going to attempt to upload the pattern so you can read the instructions and I've taken some pictures and make some notes so you can see what I mean. If someone can just explain to me EXACTLY how to do the beginning shell on each row, my problem will be solved. I've already started over once and I know I'll have to start all over again, because I can't see any way to salvage what I've got here. Hope this makes sense. If not, feel free to ask questions. Thanks for your help. Nance
