Where are the abbreviations what Is sc and Fptr

this pattern is not correct, something is wrong with row 11, has anyone figured it out yet. I like the pattern but can not finish it with these directions

Seems like this pattern is missing 2 rows orhas 2 rows too much between row 10 and 11

Crafter is correct, it isn't working out. HELP! No center stitch. Doesn't calculate correctly.

I love this pattern, but having problems, with round 8 and 11....* says to have 6 dc in in each space. then you come to row 11 and you are to do fpdc in center dc of dc group 2 rows below mine comes out that there are 4 dc stiches and therefore there is no center dc to go into...it is causing me a headache! I have put it in the 2 dc but this doesn't work, and it causes it to not lay flat. Can anyone help me????

Hi You should be fpdc in row 9 not 8. 2 rows down from 11 is 9.

Hi. Finished making the Circle Afghan. Yesterday. I am so very satisfied with the end product...Very, very pretty...and quite easy to make. thank you, Anne

HI, I am having problems with this pattern. row 8 and 11 seem to not go together for the "center stitch" which I have calculated to be 4 stictches therefore no center. can you help please???

Dear Smokie, It means front post treble crochet. To make a fptr you, insert your hook around the indicated stitch. Yarn over twice and take off two loops at a time 3 times. You will get a very tall stitch. This stitch is what gives the afghan the spider web effect. Estelle

I am a beginner at crocheting. I would like to crochet this but there are some abbrivations such as Ftpr that I don't understand. Can you help me? Brinda
