have a quick question about the easy October square: what does dc around hdc mean? I know the dc and hdc bit, but how do you dc around anything?
Here's the discussion we had earlier in this post about the same topic - hopefully it will explain things to you!
at the end of the first round you made 1 hdc into the 3rd of beginning 3 ch. That hdc formed a loop, which is the corner of the square. You insert your hook into that loop. Hope this helps.
So, you insert the hook INTO the loop and finish your dc and you have now gone around the hdc.
