Hi Everyone

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am new to crochetville.  I live in Lockport, NY and am in need of assistance in interpreting a pattern.  I have completed this row:  ch 5 (counts as first tr plus ch 1), turn; (tr, ch 1, twice in same st, *^(skip next hdc, tr in next hdc) 3 times, skip next hdc, tr decrease, (skip nxt hdc, tr in next hdc) 3 times, skip next hdc, (ch 1, tr) 3 times in next hdc, ^ , (tr, ch 1 ) 3 times in next hdc; repeat from * 6 times more, then repeat from  to ^ once:  104 tr.  The row I need help with is as follows:  ch 2, turn; hdc in same tr and in each ch and tr across to last tr, 2 hdc in lst tr:  154 hdc.  What I don't understand is where am I supposed to put the hdc for the ch  ... in the actual chain from the previous row or in the chain space created from the previous row?  Hope you can understand my question and would really, really appreciate any help anyone can give.  Thanks and I look forward to this new "community" I joined.

Welcome to Crochetville!  Usually when a chain space is made with longer stitches, then you crochet into the space, rather than the chain.  However, your pattern says "ch" and not "ch sp."  Can you post the link to the pic and/or pattern?

 

If you can't tell from looking at the pic, you can always try it both ways to see which one looks better to you.

Thanks for your response...since my pattern did not say ch sp that is why I was confused.  A book I got from the library said pattern publishers always assume you know it is the ch sp not in the ch  but I kind of disagree with that.  If I can figure out how to show a picture of it I will post it.  Thanks again!!!

Personally, I'd go with crocheting into the space, rather than the chain.  It's much easier and looks nicer.

Omg redrosesdz I just noticed that our birthdays are the same day...you are only a year older than me.  What part of PA are you from?  I was born in Clearfiled, PA and my family moved to NY when I was six.  Thanks again for your help.  I have decided to go with crocheting into the space since like you say it is much easier.  I am working on a baby blanket for my niece who is due with her first daughter in January.  She already has an five year old son.  Nice chatting with you!

I'm near Harrisburg.  A long way from Clearfield!  Isn't that an awful day to have a b-day?  I always had to celebrate it 2 days earlier, because that's when the family was gathered.  Then as I got older I found everyone either away, tired or resting for the next holiday. Grrrr.  I just finished a baby blanket for my grandson, who is due to arrive in March.  I already have a 6 yo granddaughter.  Are you my almost doppleganger?  LOL
