I actually got a bunch more done today. Smiley

I can never wait, so I started connecting them already.

Hey Ladies,
I just wanted to keep up the encouragement, that is a beautiful shrug, and you both are doing wonderfully.  I would join you, but I am no where near experienced enough to do this, although I now have the impetus to learn.   Cheesy

did you have any trouble figuring out how to connect them?

At first yes.  I was very confused.  But I check out the designers blog, and read over and over the directions.  I did change one thing though, just because I thought it worked better.  I can tell you what I did, if you want. Smiley

And thanks!  I think I'm gonna love this thing.  Cheesy

Pheather- this really isn't as hard as it looks. i have only been crocheting for 2 months and   I am figuring it out (hopefully!)

saralynne- this is a great garmet to make if you don't have too much time. its just a bunch of granny squares. you can take them with you and do one or two when you get a few minutes to crochet!!

Cherriez- i would love to know how you are putting them together. i have a feeling its going to really confuse me.

ok. i am having some trouble with the 4th round of the granny square.

Round 4: *Ch 5, sc into next ch-5 sp, ch 5, sc into next ch-3 sp, ch 5, sc into same ch-3 sp, ch 5, sc into next ch-5 sp,* rep from * to * 3 more times ending with sc into last ch sp. Fasten off. Weave in ends.

the chart>>>> http://www.crochetme.com/2006-Summer/images/bolero_stitch_diagram_lg.gif

the written directions and the chart are different. the chart shows a slip stitch- but the pattern doesnt. the chart also has the yarn starting out from a different place than it does in real life. i keep ending up with different numbers of loops when i am done. according to the chart i should have 16 when i am done, but i keep ending up with 12 13 or 14. i am getting really frustarted with having to take out the last round of every square and do it over and over until i get the right amount.

what am i doing wrong??

I don't know what you're doing wrong....I didn't go by the chart, I went by the directions.  i just counted one of my squares, and I get 16 loops on row 4.  Also on round 4 I don't do the last 'step' "ending with sc into last ch sp"  I just slip stitch in the dc of the previous round. You could try that, if it helps. Smiley

i still have no idea what i was doing wrong, but i figured out how to fix it. i just put two loops on each cluster and two loops on each of the loops below them-- if that makes sense. i think i have about 10 granny squares done... and i bought more yarn to make another one- in black... i'm horrible- i can't resist temptation in the yarn store...
