As I said earlier in this thread, red is not a color I use to craft so coming up with an idea was hard. After a few weeks of thinking, I finally came up with a small sewing project. I cut it all out and started sewing, however, my heart was not in it and therefore it wasn't fun. I thought, what in the world am I doing, making something I won't use and don't know who to give it to, so..........I threw the whole thing away. I know, I can hear all your gasps now but don't worry, the entire project used less than a FQ of material so it wasn't that bad
Now I had to come up with another idea so I went back to my old faithful, crochet, and decided to make a dishcloth. There was no way I was going to just make a plain one and post it here, not after seeing all the creative items already on this thread. So, off I went to search the net for an interesting pattern and since it was February, I concentrated on a heart shape and this is what I came up with:
Next month I am going to make something non-crochet! I am!
I'm having trouble with round 7 of the feb. experienced once. Ive done it three times, and even put it into word so I can erase each stitch as I do it, but its STILL coming out wrong. Did you do it exactly as written?
Yes, I did it exactly as written:
Rnd 7: Ch 1, 3 sc in same sp, 3 hdc in next ch-3 sp, 3 dc in next ch-3 sp. (2 tr, ch 3, 2 tr) in next ch-3 sp, 3 dc in next ch-3 sp, 3 hdc in next ch-3 sp, 3 sc in next ch-3 sp, 3 dc in next ch-3 sp, 3 tr in next ch-3 sp, (2 tr, ch 3, 2 tr) in next ch-3 sp, 3 dc in next ch-3 sp, 3 sc in each of next 3 ch-3 sps, 3 dc in next ch-3 sp, (2 tr, ch 3, 2 tr) in next ch-3 sp, 3 tr in next ch-3 sp, 3 dc in next ch-3 sp, 3 sc in next ch-3 sp, 3 hdc in next ch-3 sp, 3 dc in next ch-3 sp,(2 tr, ch 3, 2 tr) in next ch-3, 3 dc in next ch-3 sp, 3 hdc in last ch-3 sp; join with slip st to first sc.
Note: I have one BIG tip for working on round 7. Please read this round one stitch at a time, do not try to repeat as they do not repeat, this is the round that makes the square shape take place and needs to be made as written one stitch at a time. Your square may look really ruffly by the time you get to round 9, but when you have added 10, 11, and 12 it will have shaped up. Just smooth it out with your hand and it does go flat and square.
and it came out proper. I'm not sure what to suggest - did you read the note and do what it says? Did you go back and check round 6 - maybe you made a mistake there that is causing trouble in round 7.
