Hi! I’m pretty new at crocheting and I wanted to make this nifty looking doily: [I]edit: I had to remove the link because I don’t have enough posts here yet - so just posted this line from the pattern[/I]
Rnd 3) Ch 3, working behind ch 3, dc in last ch 1 space, ch 1; * dc in next dc, working behind last dc, dc in last ch 1 space (counts as a cross stitch), ch 1; repeat from * around; join with a slip st to first dc: 20 Cross sts.
I don’t understand what it is telling me to do for this round. Specifically:
I don’t understand what it means when it says “working behind” the chain 3 or last dc. Working behind? What does that mean?
Also, when it says to work into last dc or last ch1 space, does that mean working back around the other way? And what about when it says working into next dc or ch1 space?
I’m soooo confused.
Am I just trying too difficult a project too soon? Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
