Thank you both Cheesy I kinda guessed as I started trying it out that it could be the spacecount at the end of each round Smiley
It's really fun to try this too; when I started off it just looked like a blob,but the second row straightened the first one out Cheesy

Hi!

I tried to make a six sided granny square last night using your instructions and i just got turned around somewhere i think

when you finish a row, you slip stitch into the 3rd ch of the 1st dc of that row right? That means your needle is now on top of a pair of dcs. i hope that makes some sense...

anyway, you are supposed to keep going and put 2dc, 1ch, 2dc in the "same space". I guess I'm not sure wat space that is. I tried chaining three and then making a dc in the next space after the 2 dcs my needle was on top of when i joined rows, but it looks weird.

wow, even i don't understand what i just wrote...

basically, i find that when i join a row, I am not in a "space" on my new row. I don't know how to get to the next space to do the 2dc 1ch 2dc pattern again.

whew! I hope someone outhere got what I mean and can help!

Thanks!

the 3ch space (that you made in the previous round that you're slip stitching into) becomes a dc.  after you sl st, you're basically "sitting" in the 3ch space. then you make 3 ch immediately after you slip stitch and then (2dc, 1ch, 2dc) in the original (first) 3 ch space. so you're working all those stitches in 3 ch space from the last round. if you keep making rounds, they start to even out and make points and no one really knows where those 3ch spaces are.  they look like regular dcs.  i hope that makes sense.  good luck!

That is an awesome way to use all of the leftover yarn you have from various projects...might have to start accumulating that.

Totally stunning! As in, I was stunned when the pic came up! Couldn't take my eyes off the pic.

(I once got halfway through a granny-hexagon afghan/ blanket...not this gorgeous but kinda nice...Maybe this image of yours all spread out and beautiful and FINISHED will inspire me to finish mine.)
