I've been crocheting for about 4 months now....saw this pattern on Ravelry...had to get a copy of Crochet! May 2008for the pattern. I started it in October, but had to lay it aside to finish Christmas gifts. Picked it back up the end of December and finished it January 9th.

I also added a rainbow to the pattern! Here it is!

Your blanket looks really wonderful. If you hadn't said how long you have been crocheting I would have never known:cheering:

You did a great job! I bought this pattern and just can't figure out row 1. Can you help? It says...

Row1: ch 115, 2 dc in the 4th ch from hook. *dc in each of next 3 chs, [dc dec (see stitch guide) in next 3 chs] twice, dc in each of next 3 chs**, 3 dc in each of next 2 chs, rep from * across, ending last rep at **, 3 dc in last ch, turn. (112 dc).



Does it mean dc dec 2 times. That is how I have done it and I come out with 2 chs at the end of row and when I turn to go to row 2 that row then isn't working out because row 1 isn't right. I'm not falling in the right ripple (ups and downs).

Can you help?

Thank you,
Shelly

Hi Shelly,

I do believe Merryknitter had the same trouble. I did a post on my website with a video to answer her question, so you might find that helpful too. You can find it here (http://www.hookedonneedles.com/2008/10/learn-to-crochet-double-crochet.html).

Please let me know if that was helpful to you.

I'm sure your blanket will turn out just as beautiful as Merry's and I sure hope you share a picture with us when it's done!

NOW I GET IT!
Thank you so much....I usually don't give up until I figure it out but, I sure was frustrated. I was just missing that last stitch...
Thank you again!
Shelly
