Pattern Help, crochet, 2 dc in next 2 dc


Im having trouble understanding this crochet pattern (new to crochet)

Ch.3 (counts as first Dc), Dc in next 2 Dc, *2 Dc, ch 2, 2 Dc in the ch 2 sp, 1 Dc in next 3 Dc


Welcome to KH!
Which pattern are you following? Can you give us the name or a source?
Perhaps @OffJumpsJack @okckwilter or @WhampusKitty will be able to help.


This is something of a guess until we see what pattern you’re using but I think those instructions mean:
Ch 3 (counts as first Dc)
Dc in each of the next 2 Dc
*2 Dc, ch 2, 2Dc in the ch 2 space, 1 Dc in each of next 3 Dc
Repeat from * (that last line) until your row or round is complete.

Let us know if it’s still clear as mud!


This is the pattern


Are you still having trouble with the pattern? It looks like you were having trouble with Row 2 when you first posted? I think my earlier post is correct except I can now clarify a bit further:

Ch 3 (counts as first Dc)
Dc in each of the next 2 Dc

  • 2 Dc, ch 2, 2Dc ALL IN THE NEXT ch 2 space, 1 Dc in each of next 3 Dc *
    Repeat instructions between * two MORE times (a total of 3 times)
    Finish the corner as per the instructions. You should end up with a total of 28 Dc.

It would still help to see a picture of your project or the name so we can look it up.

Does that help you?


Oh! The pattern @AliSmith is making is a giant granny square pattern. (Does that help @okckwilter?)

The 15 rows off DC make it much larger than a typical granny square pattern.


I think you’re right, Jack, a giant granny square sounds right. I still think my earlier interpretation is correct but hopefully AliSmith will come back if things still don’t make sense.


Oh, yes, your posts are correct.

Mine was not meant as a correction. I was Just answering your question as to what the pattern was.
