Okay I want to crochet my daughter a belt and I made a foundation chain of 91 chs. Of course it is a little longer then her actual waist size so I can put it though the d-rings I have for it. The pattern I want to useia the snapdragon pattern and to do it it says it is a mutiple of 8 + 5 chs. What does that mean if the foundation chain I made for her belt is 91 chs long?? Please help?

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

What that means is that the 'design' part of the pattern takes 8 stitches per section - so when you make the foundation chain, it needs to be a multiple of 8 (like, 64, 72, 80, 88, etc.) plus you have to add 5 stitches for turning and starting row two.  91 stitches won't work for this pattern so you need to take it back to 85 or add more stitches to make 93.  Hope that makes sense.
