Patter Confusion


Question

Hello!

I'm working on the attached Bernat Crochet Cozy Blanket Scarf pattern and have hit a snag in what the pattern wants me to do and my understanding of it. Where I'm stuck is at the step below. 

"Proceed as follows:

1st row: (RS). Beg block. *Block in next ch-3 sp. Sl st in next ch-3 sp. Rep from * to last ch-3 sp. Turn. Leave rem sts unworked.

2nd row: (RS). Sl st in each of first 3 dc. *Block in next ch-3 sp. Rep from * to end of row.

Rep last 2 rows until work from beg along longer side measures 32" [81.5 cm], ending on a WS row. Join B. Fasten off A.

With B, rep last 2 rows until work from beg along longer side measures 64" [162.5 cm], ending on a WS row. Join C. Fasten off B."

My confusion is in how those two repeated rows are continued without reducing the length of the longer side, which is the side where the rows are being worked, and without leaving large gaps in the pattern from the slip stiches.

If anyone has worked on this pattern or something similar and can help me out that would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Marshall

Hi

 It is a corner to corner type shawl-blanket. from what I read the decrease happens with the next section after you have crocheted the length 

There won't be gaps because slip stitching across will be the decrease on the ends. 

I hope I helped.

Definitely no gaps with the slip stitches.  The stitch markers are in my slip stitches

I love c2c but often find myself confused especially when working a rectangle.  Squares are easier.  You work the increase rows and then the decrease rows.  You will be working these on a rectangle but what to do on the in between part.  You will be doing a combination of increasing on one side of a row and decreasing on the other side.  That way your piece elongates until you reach the point where you work the decreasing corner.

This helps, I was getting confused about doing a combination of increasing on one side (the longer side) of a row and decreasing on the other. If I can ask one follow up question about your slip stitches in the picture. 

 

Are those slip stitches into the 3 dc that are part of the last ch-3 space that was left unworked or somewhere else?

My understanding is in the 1st row when I'm alternating between blocks and slip stitches in the ch-3 spaces to the last ch3-space, my second to last ch-3 space gets a block stitch and then I turn my work leaving the last ch-3 space but at the start of the 2nd row those first 3 slip stitches are into the double crochets that make up the block with the ch-3 space that was left unworked.

I took more photos to see if this helps.  Sorry for shadows as I have lost daylight.

I am working on last block of row.  This has my ch 3.

Here I have turned my work, sl at in the tops of those dc to reach the ch 3 space on that block and made my ch 3 to start a block.

Ah I see! So where pattern says "Rep from * to the last ch-3 space" you're continuing the pattern INTO that ch-3 space where I was leaving it unworked.

If I may ask one more thing, this has been super helpful thank you, could you show me you're 1st row of the two repeating rows where the pattern says to "*Block in next ch-3 sp. Sl st in next ch-3 sp. Rep from * to last ch-3 sp". I think I might be misunderstanding those instructions.

Thanks again!

Again sorry for the shadows.  The brown is really that tan with blue flecks.

This is continuation from last photo with the ch 3.  I have made 3dc.  A block consists of ch3 and 3 dc

Sl st into ch 3 space which attaches just completed block to block on previous row that is also adjacent to it.
