I'm close to being finished with this project. The double crochet front post and back post creates a beautiful textured pattern. My color is soft white and will include roses on the border. Great gift for weddings, birthdays, new moms or for yourself. Thank you for the pattern Favecrafts.

Please include the number of yards of yarn, not just its weight. Thanks.

I canniot get a print of this pattern. I have not had problems like this before.

I seem to have trouble with either gaing stitches, or losing stitches. When you turn a piece and chain 2 (or3), do you count the stitch or not count the stitch that is on the crochet needle, when going starting the next row?

I'm sitting here trying to work this out and I honestly don't see why this should be called "easy". Working 1 row below is not so bad, but 2 rows below, when you've only got one row of dc done is a trick I can't manage!

i do not get your dcbp and dcfp either they are excatlly the same as a ds and triple stitch what is the difference?

 

May 12, 2012

Under abbreviations, I do not understand the instructions for dcbp and dcfp. Also at the beginning of instructions it says 'Note: Ch 2 at beg of row counts as st.' do you mean as in a turning chain? I am a newbie and trying to get used to "each person's" lingo...it means the same but is stated differently than other instructions so is confusing. Thanks for the help!
