I totally know what I'm doing this weekend.  Thank you so much for the tutorial!

Oh my gosh, I can't wait to see your tutorial on this!  They don't look too hard but having a tutorial is always so much better than figuring it out on your own.  I'm going to make them for all my friends - we're all complete tetris addicts!

I know this is a pretty old topic, but I was just wondering - has anyone else here found the patterns in Interweave to be really, really frustrating?  I'm working on the rib and fan socks in the current (Spring 2009) issue, and I've just been having the worst time, from gauge to row counts to color changes to just figuring out what it is the instructions mean.  I tried the seamed mittens in an earlier edition (I think it was fall) and eventually had to give up.  Granted, two is a really small sample size given how many patterns they print, but I'm a pretty advanced crocheter and I'm surprised at how much trouble I've had.  Anybody else?  Or is it just me?

That is so awesome - would you mind if I tried to copy your idea and make one of my own?  I would love to give one as a gift to my friend (not to sell).  Obviously I'll just be working from your pictures, so I imagine mine won't turn out nearly as nice  Wink

Thanks so much for being willing to help!  I've tried it with using a chain of 43, and that does make the initial row come out correct.  The problem is that the second row then ends up with an extra stitch somehow.  I'm wondering if maybe there is an unnecessary stitch in the initial row?  Maybe that first dc?  I might try dropping it and seeing how that turns out.  Let me know if you have any other suggestions.

Hello all,
so I am very much in love with the Seamed Mittens featured in the Fall 2008 edition of Interweave Crochet, and want to make a pair for my best friend for Christmas.  I consider myself an experienced crocheter (at least fairly), yet I'm having the -worst- time with this pattern.  I don't want to break any copyright rules by posting the pattern, but here are the first three rows:
Base row: Chain 44.  Dc in fourth chain from hook, dc2tog, *dc in next 5 ch, 2 dc in next ch, 3 dc in next ch, 2 dc in next ch, dc in next 5 ch*, dc2tog, dc3tog, dc2tog; rep from * to *, dc2tog 2 times, turn.
Row 1: Ch 1, sc across, turn.
Row 2: Ch 3, sk first sc, dc in next sc, *[ch 1, sk next sc, dc in next sc] three times*, ch 1, sk next sc, 3 dc in next sc; rep from * to *, ch 1, sk next sc, dc3tog over next 5 sts by leaving one st unworked between each dc, sk next sc; rep from * to *, ch 1, sk next sc, (dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, dc) in next sc, rep from * to *, ch 1, sk next sc, dc2tog skipping 1 sc bet. next dc, turn, 41 sts.

My problem seems to be twofold: first, it seems like there are too many stitches in the initial chain.  When I work the row, I end up with one extra every time.  I've tried several ways of fixing it (dropping a stitch, starting in the 5th ch from hook rather than the 4th).  The other problem that arises is that at the end of row 2, I once again end up one stitch short - even though I'll have 41 stitches.  I've played with it several times, and even e-mailed Interweave Crochet about it, but they haven't gotten back to me.  Anyone here have any suggestions on how to make it right, or what I might be doing wrong?  Any help at all is greatly appreciated - I'm at my wit's end to think of what I'm doing wrong. Huh
