Question
How do I crochet this?
Ch 3, skip first sc, dc in next sc, fptr around post of dc 1 row below next sc, * cross stitch over next 2 sc, fptr around post of dc 1 row below next sc; rep from * to last 2 sc; dc in last 2 sc; turn.

Answer
ch 3 = chain 3 skip first sc = do not put a stitch in the first single crochet on this row dc in next sc = put a double crochet in the next single crochet on this row fptr around post of dc 1 row below next sc = Locate the next single crochet in the row. It was made into a double crochet on the row below. Work a front-post triple crochet into the front post of that double crochet. *cross stitch over next 2 sc = "cross stitch" is not a standard crochet stitch, so check your pattern to see if it gives you directions (probably near list of abbreviations and information on gauge, hook size, and so on at the beginning of the instructions). If not, follow the instructions in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCGu0PXB3yI . fptr around post of dc 1 row below next sc = Locate the next single crochet in the row. It was made into a double crochet on the row below. Work a front-post triple crochet into the front post of that double crochet. Rep from * to last 2 sc = Locate previous * on this line of instructions. Repeat everything between the two * * until you have only 2 single crochets left on the row. dc in last 2 sc = put a double crochet stitch into each of the last two single crochet stitches on the row. turn = turn your work around to work the next row back in the opposite direction.



Question
I need help with a crochet pattern...?
so I'm in the middle of making this shrug: BACK PIECE: Crochet 78 loose ch with hook size 4 mm / G/6 and Muskat. Crochet 1 dc in 4th ch from hook, * 1 dc in each of the next 3 ch, skip 1 ch *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 dc in each of the last 2 ch = 58 dc. Continue with 1 dc in each dc. When piece measures 7 cm / 2¾'' inc 1 dc each side – see INCREASING TIP, and repeat the inc when piece measures 15 cm 62 dc. Continue until piece measures 22 cm EDGE PIECE: Crochet 1 dc in each dc along top of back piece, ch 56, 1 dc in each dc along bottom of back piece, ch 56 and finish with 1 sl st in first dc on the top of back piece. Now crochet 1 dc in each dc from back piece and in each ch chain crochet 42 dc = 204 dc in total. Continue in the round as follows: ROUND 1: 1 dc in first dc, * ch 1, skip 1 dc, 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* and finish with ch 1, skip 1 dc and 1 sl st in dc at beg of round. ROUND 2: 1 sc in each dc and 1 sc in each ch. ROUND 3: 1 sc in each sc. Repeat these 3 rounds, AT THE SAME TIME when edge measures 5, 10 and 15 cm / 2", 4" and 6'' (adjust to a row of sc) inc 34-34-34-36 sc evenly on round – see INCREASING TIP = 306-322-338-356 sc. When edge measures 17-18-19-20 cm / 6 3/4"-7"-7½"-8" (adjust so that next row is a row of sc) crochet 1 row with sc, AT THE SAME TIME inc 0-1-2-1 sc evenly = 306-323-340-357 sc. Now continue in M.1. NOTE! Beg on row marked with 1 in diagram. Work 1 vertical repeat of M.1, cut and fasten thread. and I get to this point: Now crochet 1 dc in each dc from back piece and in each ch chain crochet 42-44-46-48 dc = 204-220-236-248 dc in total. and I can't figure out what it means by by ch chain crochet 42...chain into the chain? I don't understand what I'm meant to do, it's obviously not sc into the chain stitch because then it would surely be 56 sc not 42... can anyone give me a description or perhaps a link as to what to do? Thanks Kirsten, it is for around the arm holes so that makes sense. I'll just try it and see, what's the worst that could happen? Ha ha.

Answer
Boy, that's a stumper for me too. But I do have some ideas for you on how to figure it out. 1. Check the pattern carefully, especially at the beginning and the end for special instructions. This is not a standard instruction I've ever seen before and I do a lot of crocheting. So it may be some sort of specialty stitch or manipulation that they've given a special name to in which case they'll have described how to do it somewhere in the pattern--though not necessarily right at the point where you need the explanation. For example I'm working on a doily and just hit a "Split FPtr" and had to look around for an explanation. 2. Look at the photograph with the pattern and see if you can figure out looking at it what is going on. 3. Join Ravelry and do a search on the pattern by name to see who else is doing the same piece or has completed the piece. You then have resources you can discuss the pattern with. 4. Do a google search to see if there is a help line for that designer or that publisher. Now, if I had to take a wild guess at what is going on, this is what I would try: Instead of chaining in a chain, I'd slip stitch in that chain, just as if I was joining. I have had patterns call for me to slip stitch my way along to the center of a large chain space before so that I can start a round there instead of at the edge of the space. Particularly when I'm doing something with big spaces and lots of chains (like a pineapple). They might be trying to differentiate between making a slip stitch in the chain space, and making one actually into the chain stitch itself. This slip stitch into each chain is actually a nice way to finish an edge too. I've done it to stiffen the rim of a beret, for example so it didn't stretch out too easily. We tend to try variations of what we have seen before. That's my guess. Without a photo to see what the garment looks like I'm working in the dark.



Question
CROCHET INSTRUCTIONS QUESTION?
Im not sure if i should be working in Back Loops Only for the rest of my afghan or for just the row that it told me Back Loops Only. The exact directions; Row 2: (Right side: Ch1, turn; working in Back Loops Only, (sc, ch2, 3dc) in first hdc, *skip next 3 hdc, (sc, ch2, 3dc) in next hdc; repeat from * across to last hdc, skip next 3 hdc, dc in last hdc: 42 groups Row 3: Ch 3, turn; (skip next 3 dc, work V-st in next ch-2 sp) across: 42 V-sts. Row 4: Ch 1, turn; work 2 FPtr around first dc, *skip next ch, sc in next ch and in next dc, work 2 FPtr around next dc................... So i got to row 4 and am not sure if the SC should be normal or in the back loop like row 2 was...how do i know?! (also, the open parenthesis at the beginning of Row 2 is not a mis-copy...not sure if its a typo or if an open-ended parenthesis has its own significance...)

Answer
Working in the back loops only is not a standard practice, so the pattern (usually) will tell you when to work in the back loops only. This pattern specified that the work was to be done in the back loops on Row 2 and did not specifiy to work in the back loops on Row 4. I would work normally on Row 4 and anywhere that there is no specification for working in the back loops. If the work was to be done in all rows, the instructions would either have a note stating "all work is done in the back loops only" or would specify in the Row 2 instructions that you work in the back loops only "on this and every following row." However, whenever you REPEAT Row 2, you will work in the back loops only. That's a typo. The closing parenthesis would follow "side" (if it had been included).
