Question: For Rnd6, it says to Slip st to 3rd ch of beginning ch3.
But Rnd6 starts w/ Ch1 ?
Did I ready the pattern incorrectly?

Thanks,

Yep, you're right. I'm going to make the correction now. Good catch! :)

Pam said...

What a cool pattern! I've been looking for something to organize all those darn plastic grocery bags, and this will fit the bill. Major kudos!

Rnd 5: Ch 2, dc in next ch 3 loop, dc in previous ch 3 loop. *dc in next unworked loop, dc in previous loop * around. Slip st to beginning dc.

Could you please clarify this. Am I to crochet two double crochets in each chain?

What Allison said. I'm a knitter who crochets sometimes. I do not understand Row 5. Then again it is late at night! I also agree with Melinda!

Yah, I'm having the same problem with the *dc in next unworked loop, dc in previous loop* that appears in rounds 5&7. What does it mean?

Amira said...

The problems with round 5 and 7, where you dc in the next ch3sp (loop), then you YO, put your hook through the previous ch3sp (loop) YO and finish like a reg dc.
After you did that, then you YO and d in the next ch3sp, (the one after the first one you did).
It's supposed to be like a Xdc, which he explains towards to top of His main page on the Blog.

Sorry if its confusing, took me a bit to figure out myself, but I'm crocheting this right now myself, my dad finally got frustrated with all the plastic bags we got under the sink :-)

I'll be posting on my blog when I get done.
Nice Patterns by the way, I'll be trying some of these out when I'm done with what I got started.
