The first question that arises is, what do they mean by double crochet? I opted for the one where you wrap the yarn around the hook one time before working the stitch. It looked fine on the first go round, but maybe a little large on the next two rows?
By the time I got to the shell-stitch row on the neck, I thought I better call my sister, Robin, to find out for sure what a treble crochet in American-speak is. Two wraps around the needle, then work the stitch. But what is it in British?
I went with American, and I think it looks fine.
Seven hours later I had a finished project.
I was working from a photocopy. If I had taken time to find the book, I could have just looked at the cover photo and seen what was going on.
But if I had taken time to find the book, I wouldn't have done the crochet.
I'm not very fond of crocheting.
P.S. I didn't have the right size hook, either. I guess I need to buy something in between teensy beading and size G for afGhan.
Not that I would crochet an afghan, either.
