3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / mesh bag pattern help on: December 26, 2007 08:50:42 PM
I have attempted this once and it just doesn't look right, so I am asking for help !

Bag
Rnd 1: Ch3, 1dc into ring, join with sl st to top of 3ch
Rnd 2: Ch4, 1dc into next st, *ch 1, 1dc into next st, rep from * to end, join with sl st to 3rd ch of the 4ch.
Rnd 3: Sl st into next ch from hook, ch5, 1 dc into next ch sp, * ch2, 1dc into next ch sp, rep from * to end, ch 2 join with a sl st to 3rd ch of the 5ch

So Rnd 1 is easy enough, but in Rnd 2.. when it says CH4, 1dc into next stitch.. does this mean the stitch directly next to it or do I skip one? 

Unfortunately it also does not tell me how many stitches I am suppose to end up with until the bag is completed (210 stitches in Rnd23).  Anyways... for my first attempt.. I kept stitching in the very next stitch, but by the time I get to Rnd 5, I have almost double the amount of stitches then what I am suppose to end up with in Rnd 23 and I am not even halfway there so this must be a mistake.

thanks in advance!

i'm not sure if i can post the pattern, so i have removed it.

8  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Jolly Roger Sweater Question on: January 03, 2007 10:47:12 AM
Quick question...

In rows 57-62 on page 200, what does all the other numbers in parantheses mean? For example (55-62, 55-62, 55-63, 55-64)?

The way I am reading it is that I have to crochet rows 57-62 with 57 (57 is the size that I need for my husband) chains across.

Help.  Thanks!
9  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Craft Fair Table Pricing - Help on: December 14, 2006 10:29:07 PM
Hi - I have decided to venture out on a limb and start my own summer craft fair for 2007 in Vancouver to fill the void of urban and modern fairs.  I have 8ft tables available and people can either have a full table or share with 4ft each.  I want to take a poll and see what people consider to be a reasonable price.  The fair will be over two days (Sat/Sun) sometime in May.  Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

10  CANADA / British Columbia / Seam Rippers ?? on: December 05, 2006 07:18:00 PM
Hi - I keep reading about Seam Rippers on this site, but I can't seem to find them on the web.  Do you know if they had a craft fair this year?  I keep checking www.seamrippers.ca, but I don't think its the same site that everybody is talking about.  Help!
