I don't know if any of you have done this pattern: http://amigurumiparadise.blogspot.com/2008/11/amigurumi-banana-free-pattern.html

I am a bit confused.  I think I am doing something wrong.

Ok, I am having problems with Round 14. I made the dangling ch 10, then I started at what I THOUGHT was the 2nd ch from the hook and did 8 sc.  Then the pattern says to do a sl st.  I did this sl st into the last loop of the ch 10. The following sc was placed into the front loops of the next stitch on the main body.  When I finished doing the instructions 2 more times, I came up short of actually finishing the round.  Like, I was short a few stitches and didn't make it all the way around.  It seems that if I placed the sl st into the main body and not on the ch, that would make up the difference in stitches I missed to complete the round  But it doesn't seem to make sense!

If I started the sc in the chain one more over, that would allow me to put the sl st on the main body.  I guess I might be wrong about what "2nd ch from hook" means.  So... anyone know where that sl st is supposed to go?

Hi. Smiley I looked at the pattern, and I kept ending up with the same problem you were, and I figured out what happened.

For round 14, where it says "(ch 10, turn, sc in 2nd ch from hook, 8 sc)" it means, as according to the chart, that you sc in the 2nd chain from the hook AND in the next 8 chains, and 1 sc + 8 sc = 9 sc. Then you would sl st into the body of the banana instead of the last chain, which makes your peel stitches come out even all the way around. Smiley

I hope I helped. Let me know if you need me to clarify anything.
