Pattern struggles!!


#1

Hi,

I have just started crochet yesterday and started straight on a pattern and have taught myself (hopefully correctly). I’ve managed row 1 & 2 but I’m stuck on 3. Could someone please help me break it down?

There should be a “special stitches” or “special instructions” paragraph either at the beginning or the end of the pattern. It should tell you what the “tr/rf” is.

I wonder if this video helps? It seems to follow a bit of the pattern rows.

About halfway down the page it defines Tr/rf although you’re right, Becky that the best source is the pattern itself. It may have its own definition.

Tr/rf Front Post Triple/ Treble Crochet or Tr/rf (raised treble crochet at the front of fabric) = wrap the yarn around the hook, insert the hook from in front and from right to left around the stem of the appropriate stitch, and complete the stitch normally
