I am working on a project for a swap using a pattern that is online, and it's a pretty decent pattern to work with, aside from some minor problems...


Now, here's part of the pattern that is causing me some confusion, and please feel free to send me a virtual knock upside the head if I'm just reading this wrong (my math is in red):

Rnd 4: sc in next sc (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc) 5 times, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc (24 sts) 28 sts
Rnd 5: sc in each sc around
Rnd 6: (sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around (30 sts)
Rnd 7: sc in each sc around
Rnd 8: sc in next 2 sc (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 4 sc) 5 times, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc (36 sts) 44 sts

So, am I just looney?  I've never been a math genius, but the original pattern seems to be off...  Do I do it the way the pattern says to, or do it the way my math says?!?!

And a big thanks in advance!

what pattern is it exactly? is it an ami? cos they tend to go up by 6 stitches  alot sometimes dont they? so the 24, 30, 36 would make sense.. hmmm!? you could pm me with the pattern link if you like? if you didnt want your swap partner seeing it?

I don't know what you've done but I agree with the pattern.

Rnd 4: sc in next sc (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc) 5 times, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc (24 sts) 28 sts It starts with one stitch. There are four stitches in the brackets and you do them five times which equals 20 stitches. Then two, then one, for a total of twentyfour.


Rnd 5: sc in each sc around
Rnd 6: (sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around (30 sts)
Rnd 7: sc in each sc around
Rnd 8: sc in next 2 sc (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 4 sc) 5 times, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc (36 sts) 44 sts Starts with two stitches. There are six stitches in the bracket and you do this five times, which is thirty stitches. Then two, then two more. Total of thirty six.

I agree with Sansa, that is how i read it to.

Rnd 3 probably contains 18 stitches.
Rnd 3 => 18
Rnd 4 => 24
Rnd 5 => 30
Rnd 6 => 30
Rnd 7 => 30
Rnd 8 => 36

Generally, when you are crocheting in the round, while your piece is still flat, you tend to increase regularly.
Round 1 => base chain
Round 2 => 2sc in every sc
Round 3 => (sc in next sc, 2sc in next sc) around
Round 4 => (sc in next 2 sc, 2sc in next sc) around
...
Round n => (sc in next (n-2) sc, 2 sc in next sc).

And since you generally start with 6 sc in the circle, this means that you incerase 6 sc for every round.


I do admit that the instructions for Rnd 4 are slightly confusing.
