That's a drop stitch, worked in the front loop only. I knew it had a name, I finally stumbled across it. This video is for working in both loops but you can easily work it front loop only I bet.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8hhZ5f-NRXY
HTH

I love that pattern, if I ever do a real crochet project again that may be it.
Thank you. I'm going to try this and see if it works. I'll redo the first 3 sc rows by using only the back loops.

Ok I got the drop stitch mastered somewhat and ran into another problem I think. In the pattern it says:
SC, *DC, (sc, dc) 9 times, 19 sc, repeat from * 5 (other afghans 3) more times, (dc sc) 10 times.

If my little brain is reading this correctly I should sc, then dc, then sc 9x for a total of 18 dc's separated by a sc between each one????? do this 5 times. What the heck is the 10 times thing? this afghan is not THAT big.



The parts in parentheses are for the other sizes that can be made with this pattern according to the notes.

means this:
SC
*DC
sc, dc
sc, dc
sc, dc
sc, dc
sc, dc
sc, dc
sc, dc
sc, dc
sc, dc
19 sc
*
work from * to * 5 more times (so you do the above section 6 times total)
dc, sc
dc, sc
dc, sc
dc, sc
dc, sc
dc, sc
dc, sc
dc, sc
dc, sc
dc, sc

for a total of 249 stitches in this row. If you're using small-ish yarn, that's not all that big.

This section of the pattern must also be used for other patterns as well, and in those other patterns, you would do the *to* section only 3 times.

If any of you other crocheters read this differently, please feel free to correct!

Hope this helps!

I agree with MGM. I couldn't figure out how to say it. That works well!

OK that's why it looks funny. I think I doubled it up so its off to frog it again. There singular rows are easy to pull out but its still a pain. Luckily its only 6 rows.

If I'm understanding you correctly the 2nd half of the row is worked backwards to the end. How can something so simple be so confuzzling?

Well not exactly. It's more like repeating sections of single/double and just single, so one row would look like this, where s=one sc and d=one dc and it's all strung together in one row:

sdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsssssssssssssssssssdsdsdsdsdsd sdsdsdsdsssssssssssssssssssdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdssss sssssssssssssssdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdssssssssssssssss sssdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsssssssssssssssssssdsdsdsdsd sdsdsdsdsdsssssssssssssssssssdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsd

Hope this helps visualize it.

To clarify it a little further:

sdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsssssssssssssssssssdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsssssssssssssssssssdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsssssssssssssssssssdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsssssssssssssssssssdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsssssssssssssssssssdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsssssssssssssssssssdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsdsd

Each color change is a section of the instruction, and this is all in one row

I sure wish you had written this pattern cause you make it so easy to understand. I may get this done in time to be mailed off before Christmas. Thank you so much.
