Hi all. My mom taught me the basics of crocheting when I was a kid. She loved to crochet and I learned the granny square. I can chain, single crochet, double crochet and do a treble crochet. 12 years ago I started a MAMMOTH single crochet blanket. I worked on it off and on for 12 years and finally finished it. High on my success...I googled easy and quick afghans. I found a pattern that is really pretty simple and beautiful...and they say should only take 3 hours! I figure, heck I can knock that out in like 6 months then. I worked the blanket on some junk yarn just to see if I could do it. It seemed to work out, so I went to the store this evening and purchased some bulky yarn. it is Bernat Blanket yarn. I am using a 10 mm hook. Here is my question. Sorry for all the yammering before hand. I chained 57. First row I was supposed to sc in the 2nd chain. I did that or I hope I did as this chunky yarn is hard to see detail. I then did a sc in the rest to the end. I was counting and when I got to the end, I had counted 55 sc. So...is that right? OR did I miss a chain? The pattern doesn't really say how many you should have in this row. I don't want to continue to the next row if I messed up this row. So I am sort of stuck. My mom is no longer here with me and I don't really have anyone to turn to. I tried googling the answer but not sure how I would even word it. Thanks in advance if you made it this far through my gobbeldy gook
I am making a granny square and granny stripes blanket for a friend's baby. It's four squares in the middle, 12 rows of granny stitches, then a round of granny squares on the outside. However, I just counted and the blanket's final granny row stitch count (to sew the squares to) is 104 stitches. There are supposed to be four granny squares in a column sewed to the edge of the blanket and they add up to 108 stitches. What do I do about the extra stitches? After the squares are sewn on, I'm adding flannel to the back to soften the seams and make it look neater, no need to see the woven ends and seams. I can post pics if needed. Really appreciate any advice!!! Thank you!
