Yeah, I'm increasing into the previous rows increases, I'll see how it goes.

Do you think it's cos I'm trying to use a pen lid as a stitch marker?!  Cheesy (I just moved house and everything, including stitch markers, is still in boxes while we renovate!)

Thanks for your help Smiley x

Thank you so much for your help Smiley

I've tried both ways, and keep getting too many stitches, think I'll start again and Concentrate Lots!
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Pattern Reading Help - Hoppity Voosh on: July 05, 2015 10:20:37 AM
Can someone please help me with this? Smiley

I've been asked to make 2 Hoppity Vooshes (I'm not quite sure what a hoppity voosh is, apart from something from a kids TV programme) and I've started crocheting from a pattern on Ravelry, and I'm having trouble making sense of it. 
(I've been crocheting and making amigurumi for years, and I don't think I've ever seen a pattern written down like this before)

The pattern from the body goes like this,

Pattern  Body Using pewter, make a large slipknot that tightens with its tail. Ch1 into the slipknot, dc5 into the slip knot. Pull the tail to tighten the knot.

Working in the round, dc2 into each dc from the previous round: 10 sts. dc twice into each dc: 20 sts. 

dc 1 round. *dc2 into one dc, dc1 *repeat to end: 30 sts.
dc 1 round. *dc2 into one dc, dc2 *repeat to end: 40 sts.
dc 1 round. *dc2 into one dc, dc3 *repeat to end: 50 sts.
dc 2 rounds. *dc2 into one dc, dc4 *repeat to end: 60 sts.
dc 3 rnds. *dc2 into one dc, dc5 *repeat to end: 70 sts.
dc 3 rnds. *dc2 into one dc, dc13 *repeat to end: 75 sts. 

Work 5cm/2 ins dc.
*dc2tog, dc13 *repeat to end: 70 sts.
dc 4 rnds. *dc2tog, dc5 *repeat to end: 60sts. 
dc 3 rnds. *dc2tog, dc4 *repeat to end: 50sts.
dc 1 rnd. *dc2tog, dc3 *repeat to end: 40sts.
dc 1 rnd. *dc2tog, dc2 *repeat to end: 30sts.
dc 1 rnd. *dc2tog, dc4 *repeat to end: 20sts.
*dc 1 rnd, dc2tog around *twice: 5 sts.
Top up stuffing as required. Break yarn, thread tail through loops, tighten and fasten

and it's supposed to look like this, and be about 18cm tall

I'm aright until I get to 'dc 2 rounds. *dc2 into one dc, dc4 *repeat to end: 60 sts. ', I can't work out if I'm supposed to do 2 rounds of dc, then a round of *dc2 into 1 dc, dc4*, or if I'm supposed to do 2 rounds of *dc2 into 1 dc, dc4*.  Or something else completely!

Halp please, I'm going to have 2 disappointed nieces if I can't get this Hoppity Voosh worked out! (So far I'm just making a wobbly circle!)
