Hi all!

I'm adding a ruffle to a project, and the instructions say to insert hook in first st, *ch 4 sc in next st, rep from * across.

I don't understand the ch 4 sc part. I understand that I'm going to have to do this in every stitch across, but I don't know if I'm supposed to do 4 sc into every stitch?

I just learned how to crochet, so layman's terms would be appreciated. :wink:

I think there ought to be a comma in there - maybe `ch 4, sc' in next stitch.

I think Sue is right about the missing comma--before you do anything in the next stitch, make four chains. Then do a single crochet in the next stitch. If you want to post a picture of the finished product, that would make it easier to confirm this.

You had sc first, then ch 4 and I think it's the other way.

But it came out great auburnchick!

It turned out really nice, which is the important thing, no matter how you did it. :)

That sounds like an extended sc (http://www.nexstitch.com/v_extended_sc.html) ( if the pattern does not have the often suggested comma. ) NexStitch has video of a one ch extended sc (javascript:createWindow('http://www.nexstitch.com/movies/QuickTime/EX_Sc.html','window2','width=338,height=278')).

The ch4 extended sc would simply make a taller bar on the sc stitch and would not produce loops. What is the pattern for the next row/round? If the next row is multiple stitches in each sc (and not loop space) then the added height of the bar alows the row to bend for the ruffle. Is there a photo with the pattern showing the ruffle?

Happy New Year!

you did a great job ...
some patterns do NOT include the comma so that you will understand that : YOU: chain 4 then sc in same stitch, across.
In other words its all in the same stitch across or around that row or round... OK??

otherwise most would be skippin a stitch an that is what they did not want you to do ... OK??

and you can make it more pronounced by doing a ch 5 if you want too...
