1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Help with Interweave pattern on: October 29, 2008 09:31:03 PM
Hello all,
so I am very much in love with the Seamed Mittens featured in the Fall 2008 edition of Interweave Crochet, and want to make a pair for my best friend for Christmas.  I consider myself an experienced crocheter (at least fairly), yet I'm having the -worst- time with this pattern.  I don't want to break any copyright rules by posting the pattern, but here are the first three rows:
Base row: Chain 44.  Dc in fourth chain from hook, dc2tog, *dc in next 5 ch, 2 dc in next ch, 3 dc in next ch, 2 dc in next ch, dc in next 5 ch*, dc2tog, dc3tog, dc2tog; rep from * to *, dc2tog 2 times, turn.
Row 1: Ch 1, sc across, turn.
Row 2: Ch 3, sk first sc, dc in next sc, *[ch 1, sk next sc, dc in next sc] three times*, ch 1, sk next sc, 3 dc in next sc; rep from * to *, ch 1, sk next sc, dc3tog over next 5 sts by leaving one st unworked between each dc, sk next sc; rep from * to *, ch 1, sk next sc, (dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, dc) in next sc, rep from * to *, ch 1, sk next sc, dc2tog skipping 1 sc bet. next dc, turn, 41 sts.

My problem seems to be twofold: first, it seems like there are too many stitches in the initial chain.  When I work the row, I end up with one extra every time.  I've tried several ways of fixing it (dropping a stitch, starting in the 5th ch from hook rather than the 4th).  The other problem that arises is that at the end of row 2, I once again end up one stitch short - even though I'll have 41 stitches.  I've played with it several times, and even e-mailed Interweave Crochet about it, but they haven't gotten back to me.  Anyone here have any suggestions on how to make it right, or what I might be doing wrong?  Any help at all is greatly appreciated - I'm at my wit's end to think of what I'm doing wrong. Huh
