I searched for an answer to my question but came up with nothing. I'm a newbie attempting to make the garden scarf. Everything looks good until I get to the tr in round four of flower b. When I make the tr I get a whole in the middle. What am I doing wrong?

Can you post the pattern or a link to the pattern? I'm not sure how it's supposed to go just by looking at your picture...

It looks like there are some chain stitches between your double and treble crochet...are there?

Crocheting is like prostitution.  First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.  Maybe that is why they call us Hookers?

It could be that you are doing an extra chain stitch before the treble.  The longer crochet stitches are all long posts, so there will always be a hole between them.

I made this scarf and you are doing it correctly.  I find that when I'm making the treble, the first loop often gets big and I have to tighten up as I'm making thjis stitch. 

You'll get the hang of it.
