Pattern Help from Crochet Magazine

Question

I have been reading crochet patterns for about 3 years. Up until now, I haven't had a problem with a pattern that I couldn't figure out. This one however is killing me. 

 

The pattern is in Crochet Magazine. Textured Treasure Sweater. It begins on page 24. I am trying to make the 2x size for a gift. I'm not sure if I am just seriously misunderstanding something or if I am over complicating things. I have tried all sizes and and I keep coming out with the same problem. I'm short chains while trying to finish row one.

 

The pattern is as follows for the size I am making, Ch 78, sc in 2nd ch from hook, [sk next ch, V-st in next ch] 7 times, sk next ch, double V-st in next ch, place marker, [sk next ch, V-st in next ch] 25 times, sk next ch, double v-st in next ch, place marker, [sk next ch, V-st in next ch] 7 times, sk next ch, sc in last ch.

 

I have worked, and re-worked this time and again and I can't get it right. I do not know if I am just missing something. If anyone has made this and it worked please let me know what I'm missing. I'm going to put it down for tonight and hopefuly when I pick it up tomorrow it makes sense.

 

Specifically my problem is when I get to the part where I have 7 V-st left I only have enough chains to do 4.

 

Any help  will be appreciated, I really don't want this to beat me.  :)

 

Thanks y'all! :)

Thank you so much for trying :)

 

Row 2: Ch1, Sc in 1st st, *V-st in each ch space of V-st across**, to double V-st, V-st in 1st ch 2 sp, sc in center sc (place marker), V-st in last ch 2 sp, rep from * across, ending last rep at ** sc in last st, turn.

 

Row 3: Ch1, sc in 1st st, *V-st in ch sp across** to marked sc,V-st in marked sc rep from * across ending last rep at ** sc in last st. turn

 

Row 4 : Ch 1, sc in 1st st * V-st in ch sp of each of the next 8 (for the 2x size) V-sts, double v-st in next st, V-st in each of the ch sp of each of the next 27 V-sts,  double V-st in next st, V-st in each of last 8 v-sts, sc in last st, turn.

 

Row 5 and 6 rep rows 2 and 3

 

Row: 7 is just like row 4 except instead of doing the first 8 v-sts you do 9 before the double v-st. and 9 after the second double v-st..

 

I had added stitches in the beg to make it work and it did until row 7.

 

8 and 9 are done just as 2 and 3 but then 10  is just like 7 only increasing again. it makes it all wierd and it really just doesn't look right.

 

I have a request into the magazine but it's been two days and no response.

 

Thank you again for your help :)

I haven't forgotten this just still working on it. Also wondering how your doing now. I did what you did and am on the 5th row. Just wondering what you mean you did it till row 7 and it went wrong. Can you describe the problem and why it doesn't look right.

I checked on Ravelry to see if the pattern had a link to errata or people had comments about the design.  I discovered that the designer is Creative Yarn Source and the same pattern is on her website.  Maybe your questions can be answered through her "Contact Me" button.

I didn't physically work it but,  if you add all of the repeats it adds up to more stitches than chains.

I found a picture of one but the stitches are textured. what are your v stitches like as I am just trying it with reg v stitch ones? the numbers are ok so far and I just finished row 7. Is this done in two parts front and back done seperately? guess that's enough questions for now. :lol

Its done in 2 parts, front and back.

 

The v stitch  is sc ch 2 sc in same st.

double v st is  sc ch2 sc ch2 sc in same st.

 

the doubles are what mess me up.

 

It increases and it makes it look wrong and messes up the numbering.

I'm sorry your still having problems but glad you heard from the magazine. I just did 8 and 9 in the pattern stitch and the numbers worked for me. Maybe you are either skiping stitches or doing too many as I had that happen and did some frogging for that.

Hi I did five rows in dc v stitch and five in the pattern sc v stitch and this is the way it should look. I used thread so mine will be a different size but it will be the same concept. The numbers do work  and the pattern is right so far except for the beg row we changed. You have to make sure to mark the v stitches when you do the increase in the sc of the double v stitch so they line up .
