Hi, I was wondering if some one could give me a little bit of help with getting a stitch/trim pattern down. I am not sure what type of stitch I am trying to do here (I am pretty new at crochetting), I thought I had it but mine I find stands up too much.
Here are some photos of what I am trying to do:http://i355.photobucket.com/albums/r461/sansibarsby/Picture16.pnghttp://i355.photobucket.com/albums/r461/sansibarsby/Picture14.pnghttp://i355.photobucket.com/albums/r461/sansibarsby/Picture12.pnghttp://i355.photobucket.com/albums/r461/sansibarsby/Picture11.pnghttp://i355.photobucket.com/albums/r461/sansibarsby/Picture10.png
And this is what I have done:http://i355.photobucket.com/albums/r461/sansibarsby/IMG-20110504-00026.jpgI find mine the "braid" is standing out too much. I also find that when I connect the colors it starts to fold/lean one way, rather than lie flat.
What kind of stitch are you using--sc (single crochet) or ss (slip stitch)? In general, single crochets are taller than slip stitches. If you're already using a ss, though, you may have to switch to a less bulky yarn to get the braid flatter.
