What does Ch 5: 8 ch 2 sp Mean?


Vultronn

Question

Working on a grandma square blanket and a couple of the rounds end saying something like "Ch 5: 8 ch 2 sp" what exactly does that mean? I think I understand 2 sp means the next space. Below is the first round and a link to the pattern.

 

Any help would be great thanks.

 

Rnd 1: Ch 5 - counts as first dc and ch 2, (dc, ch 2) 7 times in ring, join to 3rd ch of beg. ch 5: 8 ch 2 sp.

It means you should have eight ch-2 spaces on round 1.  (They'll be separated by the stitches that went into the ring.)

Yes, exactly.  I find these types of patterns very helpful - this way I can check to make sure I did the round/row correctly and not have to go back and frog a bunch of stuff if I made a mistake.  I think it would be more obvious if they used a period instead of a colon to separate the info, though.  ;)

No.  When you first started this round, you needed to chain 5.  Those first 5 chains counted as the first double crochet (which is usually 3 chains) and then the first chain 2 space.  When you join, you find the 3rd chain in that first set of 5, and you join (yes, with a slip stitch) into that 3rd chain.  That will leave you with 2 chains, which form your ch-2 space.

 

I can draw out a diagram for you, if you think that would help.  ;)  I never know if the way I explain it will make sense to others... let me know if you understand from what I typed.  :)
