I'm having troubles wth my last stich Wht at end of afghan help my ends don't match up ??

Crochet Jewel said...

did you watch the video, how many chains did you go with, and did you make sure you counted all your stitches, if you miss a stitch if can throw it off.

Clara's Heart Sweet Delights said...

Pardon my question, but I am a newbie. If I wanted to do this in double crochet, would I chain 251 and double crochet in 4th stitch from the chain? Thank you so much for your answer.

Clara

Crochet Jewel said...

if you want to the 4th chain from the hook, I think you would have to do a chain of 253

Ed Robertson said...

I must be doing something wrong. In following the directions of row two stating to leaving the last stitch unworked..My Afghan is slowly shrinking! What am I doing wrong? Help!!

Crochet Jewel said...

Did you watch the video? Are you counting all your stitches?

danielle said...

I am sorry, I thought I was posting for the crochet ripple stitch afghan. I love the pattern but would like to use the dc stitch. would I still put my first dc in 2nd ch from hook? and when I turn, would I still ch1 or the standard ch3 for dc? thank you.

Crochet Jewel said...

I cant say for sure, since you are changing up the pattern, but I would maybe add one more chain to your chains, and dc in the 3rd chain from the hook, yes you could do ch 1 and follow the pattern and see if that works, I think ch 3 to start may mess up the pattern, since you need to skip a stitch

Kim Rutherford said...

What was the ozs. On your skiens. Lived your video easy to follow..

Cindylou said...

Why are you leaving that last chain unworked? If you do that in every row after row one it will shrink your afghan wouldn't it? What is the reasoning for not working that chain? I watched the video and thought you were going to show us how to do something with it.

Crochet Jewel said...

did you try the pattern yet, it works to leave it unworked

Mary Fabricius said...

Hi ! If I didn't skip the first stitch then maybe I wouldn't have the extra one at the end! Can I do that?

Crochet Jewel said...

you can try it, but Im not sure

Nancy-Anne Rockwell said...

I am also having an issue with the last stitch of every row. I always seem to have 2 stitches left over after my last 9. I've watched the video and counted twice...what am I doing wrong?

Crochet Jewel said...

hmm, only thing I can think of is to do what you are already doing, count all your stitches and watch the video, what was your starting chain count?

Nancy-Anne Rockwell said...

When I tried the 125 chain count, that's when I had the problem. I ripped it out and restarted with the 146 chain count it worked out perfectly!
Thanks so much for posting this video. I've always wanted to make this and now I can! I'm using dark mauve, black and cream. Can't wait to watch the progress!

Crochet Jewel said...

Glad it worked out!

Amy DeClue said...

I hope you don't mind me interjecting. I just finished the afghan and I love it! I got to the last two stitches and did a reduction type stitch at every end. It worked perfectly!

Amy DeClue said...

Did mine in dark blue, silver, and white. Turned out great! Thx for the pattern share!!!

Misty Tessely said...

Do I use the back loops for every row?

Crochet Jewel said...

yes every row

Ann Williams said...

251 chains will it be big enough for queen size bed

Crochet Jewel said...

I dont think so, I think it would be a bit small for that, and I dont have a larger chain count to make it bigger sorry

Belindy said...

Hello I doing the 146 count of this blanket and I've come up short at six stitches four times at the end please help what am I doing wrong,I am counting every time

Crochet Jewel said...

I know for sure that the 251 chain count works since that is how the original pattern is worked out, so I made a chart with the stitch counts and those are the numbers I came up with but It could be wrong or you are doing the stitches wrong, so Im not sure.

Pat Erekson said...

To make the pattern, just use your 12 stitches in each "peak" and multiply that by the number of additional peaks you want, then add that number to the 251 stitches that the original pattern calls for... pretty easy to figure it out that way...
