The first row is to single crochet 6 in the second stitch from the hook. I have just uploaded a crochet video demonstration on crochet abbreviations and symbols. Check back if it says that it is not available to view. I have just uploaded it so it may take some time.

To Heather,
Some patterns require just what you said, but it is pretty simple if the pattern calls for a multiple of nine just add six extra stitches.

I have an old crocheted tablecloth that needs repair. Does anyone know of a professional who could do this? I do crochet, but don't feel qualified to undertake this project. Thanks

I am having difficulty with a pattern for a Christmas tree skirt that appears to be perfectly simple. I hope someone can point out what I am doing wrong.

Here are the stitches:

Beg CL (Beginning Cluster): Ch 3,(yo, insert hook in indicated st and draw up a loop, yo and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice; yo and draw through all loops on hook.
CL (cluster):(Yo, insert hook in indicated st or ch and draw up a loop, yo and draw through 2 loops on hook) 3 times, yo and draw through all loops on hook.

Here are the instructions:
Ch 4. Join with a sl st in first ch to form a ring.
Rnd 1: Beg CL in ring,*ch 3, CL, rep from * 4 more times, ch 3, join with sl st in top of beg ch.
Rnd 2:(Beg CL, ch 3, CL) in first ch-sp, ch 3 *(CL ch 3, CL) in next ch-sp, ch 3, rep from * 5 more times, join with sl st in top of beg ch.
Rnd 3:(Beg CL, ch 3, CL) in first ch-sp, ch 3, CL in next ch-sp, ch 3,*(CL ch 3, CL) in next ch-sp, ch 3, CL in next ch-sp, ch 3, rep from * 4 more times, join with sl st in top of beg ch.
Fasten off.

My problem is that I end up with extra chain-3 spaces at the end of Rnd. 3.

These are my calculations:
Rnd 1: creates 7 chain-3 spaces
Rnd 2: uses 7 chain-3 spaces; creates 15 chain-3 spaces
Rnd. 3: Uses only 12chain-3 spaces???

What am I doing wrong? What am I leaving out?

I appreciate any help you can provide.

I have crocheted many items but with one on one help. I don't have this help anymore, so I am trying crochet from patterns now. I am making a snuggie and am stuck.

How do you divide for armholes as shown below? Also, when it states to place the last stitch on a holder, and then move to back portion row 64 first line states to skip 11sts, join yarn- this is what confuses me if you leave a stitch on a holder and do not tie off then you have a long piece of yarn dangling between the last stitch on holder to the next stitch where you join it, is this correct? Also how does one tell where the back starts? I am new to pattern reading so sorry for the questions and thanks for the help.
Divide For Armholes

Right Side

Row 64 (76, 88)(WS): Ch 3, turn, dc in next 23 (27, 32)

sts, leave remaining sts unworked.

Rows 65 (77, 89)-69 (83, 97): Ch 3, turn, dc in each dc

across – 24 (28, 33) sts.

Do not fasten off. Secure last st with stitch holder.

Back

Row 64 (76, 88)(WS): Skip next 11 (13, 15) sts, join yarn

in next st, ch 3, dc in next 28 (38, 46) dc, leave remaining

sts unworked.

Rows 65 (77, 89)-69 (83, 97): Ch 3, turn, dc in each dc

across – 29 (39, 47) sts.

Fasten off.

Can anyone help me on this?

Trouble with row 2 of Diamond Mesh baby afghan pattern from Bernat. Part of row 2 may be missing. Has anyone worked this?

Help, the pattern I am doing is using a lot of slip stitches which I find difficult to work into. Would substituting single crochet stitches give the same results as I usually don't see much difference between a slip stitch and a sc when they are in the same row. Thank you

Does anyone know what this means?

ch3, 1 dc into next dc,*skip 2 sc, 1 dc into next sc, ch3, work block of 3 evenly spaced dc into side of dc just made, skip 2 sc, 1 dc into each of next 3 sc; rep from * ending lst rep with 2 dc turn.

I understand the beginning and end, what I am having trouble with is the 3 evenly spaced dc into the side of the previous dc. Do I just go through the side of the stitch or is this a crochet cross stitch? Very confusing.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
