Hi, I found this beautiful modified virus shawl on YouTube. Having done some other virus shawls in the past, I though this would be a piece of cake...not so. The crocheter has a very thick accent (Russian, I think?), and I'm finding it hard to understand, even with closed captioning. Also the written pattern nomenclature is something I've never seen before, and it's also confusing to me. There is no chart. The main problem is that once I get to row 8, which is the "loopy" row that creates the "base" of the 4-row repeat, the math just doesn't come out. There seem to be 31 doubles into which the pattern has me "fit" single crochets for only 30 doubles, thus leaving one extra. I've been crocheting for well over 30 years, and have yet to find a pattern that can "beat" me! But, there's a first for everything, I guess. I love this pattern, and have found the perfect yarn for it. I'd hate to give up now. I know there are many of you who'd be able to figure this out, and I'd appreciate your help very much.
