In the previous row you did a dc and then ch 1, then dc (or something along that lines) it means you put a stitch around the chain one of the previous row.

 

Here is an exaggerated picture of what they mean.

See how she is going into the chained space to make her next stitch and not the dc's. Does that make sense?

Thanks PurpleDaffodil, it was kinda confusing but I kinda figured it out. I finally finished the purse and it was the first big project that I have crocheted. Here is a pic of it, it is done in my daughter's favorite colors.

May I post this pattern with some minor changes to Bevs-Charity-Challenge site? I have been making a few of them for gifts and last year made one to donate and people really like them. They are great items to donate to a almost any age girl or woman.

 

I do a single crochet bottom and then a row of Front loop SC for the edge. I then follow the pattern as you wrote it up to the top of the frosting ..

 

I add a 3DC, SC in next stitch ruffle as the last row. I also slip stitch back to the beginning of the chains.. that is just a matter of preference and will be so noted in the write- up I do.

 

I also make a second round and insert it inside on the bottom with a Plastic Canvas circle or recycled CD sandwhiched in between.

 

Bevs is a very active Charity group that this year has exceeded 50,000 items donated. She maintains a very large list of patterns.

 

Most likely she will put a link to here in Crochetville in the gift section and add the changes that will be offered as an option.

As long as credit for the original pattern remains mine, I think that would be fine. Since it's a free pattern already, they will most likely just link it to here on the 'ville. Hope that helps.

Awesome. Thank you for the pattern!

what kind of yarm should I use? to make it firm and stable as possible?

I tried crocheting it but it was way too loose to stand up.

 

Great pattern! :)

Thanks for this pattern, I have a few little girls to make this for so I've saved it for future reference. :cheer

 

I love the way you've written the instructions - it's SO clear. Usually I go through patterns and edit them to make them easier to read, but yours is perfect!

I did one yesterday for my 8 year old granddaughter. I only had a j-hook, not h...so it's a bit bigger, but it's cute anyway.

Hi all!

Sorry for the delay!

 

Yes, you are increasing one stitch every row on the frosting. This makes it a bit puffy than the base.

 

I used Caron SS, but I understand that Red Heart works well too.

 

I am so very happy that everyone likes this pattern!! I worked really hard on it, it was my first pattern and I am very proud of how it came out.

Hi,

I'm trying to make this cute cupcake purse , but am halted by these 2 steps

 

Round3: ch 2, 1 dc in same st

Top: Round 2: 1 dc in back loops only of next stitch.

 

Am new to crochet and I do not know hot to do this? If anyone can please explain or share any photgraphs they have, it would be VERY VERY useful!

 

Thanks!

The first question you had - it means once you ch 2 that you are going to stick your hook back into the bottom of the chain 2 and make another st in that place

The second question - your goal of putting your hook only into the back loop of a stitch is to make a "ridge" or deliniation or edge where another section begins. To do this look down at a stitch and like an "aerial view" of it the top of a crochet st looks like a "V" in some respects - SO what they want you to do is just make stitches by putting your hook in the back half of the V all the way around.

Hope this helps!

Hi Mano,

 

Here are a couple of pictures that might help you, it shows where to insert your hook under the back loops. Once you've put your hook thru the back loops of the stitch, do your dc as you normally would :)

Great pattern! I can't wait to try it! What is the name of the tan color you used for the base? What brand is it?
