Question

 

Again problem with free pattern,

I have 110 sts in total and after this next row i should have 140, i get 138. I cannit concentrate enough to calculate this mathematically. Can someone help. This is my second pattern for a round rug and it does not work for me. My count is out !!!😬

Ch2 (counts as first DC). DC in same st and next 3 st. 2DC in next st. *DC in next 3 st, 2 DC in next st.  Repeat from *.  (140 st)

Pattern is in error.

This is what I get when I try to break it down. I might have made an error but cant see it at this point so someone please double check me.

Row 8: Ch2 (counts as first DC). DC in same st.  uses 1 makes 2

and next 3 st.  uses 3 makes 3

2DC in next st.  uses 1 makes 2

so up to this point have used 5 stitches so leaves 105 stitches to work in.  You repeat the following around and each repeat uses 4 stitches. 104÷4=26 with a remainder of 1 so thats going to be a stitch not worked in

*DC in next 3 st, 2 DC in next st. uses 4 makes 5.  so 26 times would use 104 makes 130

stitches made

2+3+2+130=137 stitches made

 

Stitches used 

1+3+1+104=109

  Repeat from *.  (140 st)

Hi Lisette, there are probably 100x more small doily patterns out there than doily-like rug patterns, this one has 20 rounds.  I make a lot of doilies, this reminds me a little of Patricia Kristoffersen's style (I have a couple of her doily books; I just flipped thru her "99 little doilies" book, but they are a few rows smaller).  Let me see if I can find a similar doily with about 20 rounds in mostly DC., will report back.

Your pattern is really no different than a doily, it has 20 rounds.  Here is a list of free doilies in written English or charted, you might find something you like in a similar size.  

HOWEVER, I would never crochet an open lace rug, unless maybe it was to set a potted plant on, or otherwise placed so it would never be walked on.  I've made a solid one, under which I put a non-slip 'rug mat' so the rug wouldn't slip.  Walking on a yarn rug on a slick floor would be like stepping on a banana peel, and putting a non-slip mat under a lace rug is going to show.
