tunision crochet question
April 22, 2016 at 7:50:51 AM
Hello, First I think your site is AMAZING, now on to my question: My graph is done and the word chart written my question is ; what does 'ch1' mean in the pattern- is it just when you only pull threw the wool on the (1)first stitch , before pulling threw 2 at a time.or must I add an extra stitch each time? I hope you can understand what I am attempting to say! Thankyou for any help you can give me to understand.

When you reach the end of the row, you pull up a loop in the last stitch, the you pull another loop through the one you just pulled up (ch 1) before starting your return. Then yarn over and pull through the ch and your first return stitch.
If you don't put that "extra ch" there, your piece will decrease by one stitch.

One more note about the word chart, at the beginning of your row, count your first stitch. So you'll actually start your count with 2.

I find the word charts are much easier than the graph. Laughing

Hope this helps.

Potatoehead (LOL, memories!  Laughing),

Welcome!  Smile

Thank you...we're so glad you like the site!

Sherry is exactly right...that chain is vitally important, because otherwise, you'll start losing stitches.
