New! Caron One Pound, Caron Simply Soft and Herrschners 2-Ply Afghan palettes - thank you to BetwixtTheStitch!

New!  The Herrschner's Worsted Palette - thank you to BetwixtTheStitch!

New!  We've just added the palette for Deborah Norville Everyday Yarn!  If you knit and/or crochet, this is for you.  This is a beautiful yarn with a nice feel to it, a good alternative in worsted weight acrylic!  (Thank you again to BetwixtTheStitch!)

New!  The Red Heart Super Saver Palette - thank you to BetwixtTheStitch!

Welcome to Stitchboard!  Feel free to sit and stay awhile.  Check out our new Premier features.  In addition to the ability to create larger patterns (up to 500 stitches wide), illusion knitting and private labeling (no more worries about editing those pesky and messy PDFs), we've just introduced Filet Crochet, our most popular request!  We have many more features planned, too!  Laughing

This area shows some random posts from the Community.
To read a particular post, simply click on it!
I'm not sure where they're located? I don't see anything connected to your profile, so all I can think is perhaps they didn't save?
If you're not on a mobile device, you can post them right here in the community. Kiss Just start a new message and click on the icon in the uppermost row that looks like a tree. Kiss

The colors are listed with what I assume is the number for the color needed. Is the number below that how many skeins of that color you need?

You're so welcome! Smile
Glad to hear you figured out what was wrong. Sometimes that's half the battle!
When it comes to something like graphed work or a pattern where stitch count is critical, what I like to do is to not count the turning chain as a stitch. With double crochet, a turning chain has bulk and looks more like a double crochet, so I'll count that, but I personally feel like a chain doesn't look enough like a stitch, so I sort of count it as merely part of a single crochet, not a standalone single, if that makes sense. But then I also have to be absolutely sure that I start my single crochets in the very first stitch and finish in the very last one for every row, so as not to have what you're talking about happen - an unwanted increase.
I often recommend starting with a smaller project, such as a pillow or even a dishcloth, to get a feel for how such a project will work. But no worries...except for a bit of frustration, it sounds like you'll be okay and will be able to work even from now on. Smile

Thank you for your suggestion! Smile I've notified Terry (Support) of your message.
