I"m finding that this pattern is a little off. Where it says things like "skip 1 ch , DC, 1 CH, DC" i dont have those stitches.. instead i'll have a chain 3 or something. I've had to improvise with this pattern and sort of match it visually to the beginning of the row. I really dislike how the skips are written and how the pattern is layed out. It makes it extremely difficult to look at your work and quickly glance back at the pattern. My work looks really pretty-- I'm just hoping I can finish it. I'll post pictures when I finish.
I found this pattern to be VERY clearly and expertly written and not hard to follow. If you are a beginner crocheter or have not worked in rounds before, this may present a challenge. The cowl turned out beautifully and I plan on making more for gifts. I probably would have had problems with this when I was a beginner. It's a long and very detailed pattern. My advice is to count your stitches very carefully, use stitch markers as noted, and read each line of the pattern slowly and carefully. I use a pencil to lightly cross out parts that I have completed so I don't lose my place. Beautiful design!
I love this pattern! It takes a little time getting used to the pattern directions, but once you understand it, you can really finish it in no time at all! Such a beautiufl scarf! I can't wait to hear the comments my teenage daughter gets today after wearing it to school. I used Caron Country, which is discontinued but can be found very cheaply on the internet. Making another one out of Caron Spa and thinking of making another one in Bernat Cotton-ish! Thank you!
By the way, I didn't find the pattern confusing if you take some time read it properly...it works up exactly as written, and like I said in my previous post, once you figure out and examine where your stitches are going, it works up extremely fast!
Lovely pattern! Follow it to the letter and it works. A chart of the whole thing would be very helpful though
Can anyone complete the diagram of this pattern for me?? The wording of this pattern is too confusing, I am unable to complete this pattern past the 9th row:/
The pattern does work just finish up the 9th row and really read the next rows and work them accordingly. My SIL also purchased the pattern and I gave her advanced warning about how it was written and she managed to get it worked out. Don't get frustrated...I'm actually considering working up another scarf or two or three now that I made it through the first one. BTW it is VERY nice on so don't give up. As for diagram maybe someone else could help out with this as I"m not very good at making them.
Alright, thanks for the encouragement, I will try again :)
Hi, I bought this pattern last night, and am struggling a bit - but I think that's just because I can't visualise where I am! Do you start at the bottom of the triangle part of the cowl? Thank you! X
Yeah, I seam to be struggling a bit myself when in the beginning of the pattern it says to crochet in chain one, does that mean the first chain from the hook, or the first chain in the sequence of 7?!
Maybe I can help those of you who are struggling with this pattern. You need to take the time and read through each row of the pattern before you work the particular row you are on. The pattern will work for you as long as you follow it step by step. Sagechavez the first row is a chain 7 then work a tripe crochet in the first chain you casted on...it will make a loop but once you start to work the second row you will start to see the point or the bottom of the triangle starting. If you look at the diagram it is worked in a triangle up to row 16 where at this point you chain 162 and slip stitch to the opposite side of the triangle creating the loop that will go around your neck. I found given the yarn I used that I can easily wrap the loop much like an infinity scarf two times but if you want a more draped look like in the photo looping it once works. The fringe really adds to this design. Steaming will help block your work also. If you need any more assistance just post and I'll see if I can walk you through. Remember the pattern works exactly as it is written...I was frustrated at first too but once you get used to the creators written style for the pattern you will succeed in making this project and be proud of it! Good luck :)
Thanks!! Think I will have another go at the pattern now:)
Good luck and if you get stuck just send me a message and I'll help you out.
Oh my goodness. I am struggling in such a major way with this patten. I was able to follow the diagram without problems, but once the pattern continues past the diagram, I am completely lost again. I'm not sure if this is a pattern style that I am just unfamiliar with, but the way this pattern is worded is nothing I've encountered before and I am not able to follow it AT ALL! Frustrated!!
Me too!! The diagram up to row 9 is VERY comprehensive and looked exactly as the picture showed, but once I started solely with the written portion of the pattern I am just aghast!! I wish the whole pattern could be in diagram form, the written bit is throwing me WAY off:(
Sagechavez were you able to finish the pattern? I love the look of it, but wonder if I could figure out the pattern.
I've had a fellow vet crocheter finish this cowl for me so I have a guide. That's the only way I've been able to figure it out....I will try and post some more close-up pictures of my finished project asap!!!
Can anyone tell me if by the 13th row your scarf is sort of bunch-y and ruffling? Just like you guys I was doing great up to the 9th row with the diagram, but now I'm struggling.
I'm still trying to decide if I should try it. Want to hear some good reports before I try!!! : )
just figured it out past row 9...SUPER easy!!! Keep with it!!!
OK...Now I am on row 17 after the 162 chain stitches and once again LOST!!! I thought I had this pattern licked, but now I'm not so sure :/HELP!!
I still keep coming back to this pattern!!! I want to know if you figured it out, sagechavez?
Does the author intend to rewrite the instruction so they won;t be so confusing? This sounds like a wonderful pattern, but I am afraid yo buy it if it is frustrating this many people...
