for screaming into!!
Ok, Im trying to do this blanket for my first crochet project and I cannot get past the first block and its because the math is just plain wrong.
Here are the distructions so far
Row 1: dc in 4th chain from hook, dc in next ch and each ch across – 33dc
Rows 2-18 ch 3, turn, dc in each st across
how here is where my head starts hurting
Round 19 ch 1, do not turn; picot to work along side, work 31 sc evenly spaced along side; picot to work in free loops along opposite side of foundation ch, sc in first ch, sc in next 31 ch, 3 sc in next ch; pivot to work along other side, work 31 sc evenly spaced along side; pivot to work along sts of row 18, 3 sc in first st, sc in next 31 sts, 3sc in last st; join with sl st in first sc.
Now for the math issues. I am counting a total of 18 dc rows. If I do a minimum of 2 sc per dc on Round 19 wouldnt that equal 36?! And wouldnt it look and work wrong to make that 31? How can I make 36 sc in to 31?
Here is what the “square” looks like currently
Any help would be most appreciated
(off to find a pillow for screaming)
