Help me figure this out please!
Hey there guys, I'm trying my best to figure out the instructions to this pattern. I've finished up to round 24, but beyond there for some reason I just can't seem to figure it out! :/ I'll post the instructions below, I hope someone can help me.
Base: CH 21
Row 1; 20 SC, CH 1, turn.
Row 2: 2 SC in 1st, 18 SC, 2 SC in last sp, CH 1, turn.
Row 3: 2 SC in 1st, 20 SC, 2 SC in last sp, CH 1, turn.
Row 4-17: 24 SC, Ch 1, turn.
Row 18-24: 2 SC in 1st, SC to last sp, 2 SC in last sp, CH 1, turn.
Rnd 25: 38 SC, Ch 50, SL to 1st SC made to make round, CH 1, turn.
Rnd 26: 50 SC in CH 50 sp, SL to 1st sc made, Ch 1, turn.
Rnd 27: 88 SC around, SL to 1st SC made, CH 2, turn.
At the end of round 24 I have 38 stitches as I think I'm supposed to have, but from there, having to chain 50, then SC 50, I end up with those 50 stitches. How am I supposed to have 88 stitches? I realise I'm supposed to have 50 in addition to my 38 (thus 88), but I can't make sense of this pattern! I don't know if I'm just having a dumb day or what, but can someone help please? I'd really appreciate it
I think it means you do that set of 38 SC in round 25, and when you finish those, you CH 50. In round 26, you ONLY SC in the CH 50 space, and then in round 27, you do 88 SC, in both the 50 SCs you did in the previous round and also in the 38 you did in round 25. I personally can't tell exactly without seeing the item itself, I'm constantly making comparisons when I crochet. I hope that helps!
It would be useful to have a picture or link. But I agree with 'seahopes' advice.
