To built3010, try crocheting the foundation row with a larger hook and loosely. It might seem like it is too big, but it will work fine when you switch back to your hook size and get a couple of rows in. An alternative would be to use the "foundation single crochet" stitch (which you can search for a video tutorial online). This gets your chain and foundation row complete all in one stitch and makes it very easy to hang on to!

This is my first time using this type of yarn and I'm having problems making sure I don't skip a chain stitch as I crochet the first row. Do I need to make the chain exceptionally loose? I've been trying to feel for the opening as I go, but twice I've missed one and it's getting frustrating. Any hints on handling this yarn?

mrsdonie your not reading the pattern right. When you get down with the 1st row the end of it chain 2 (that's the turning up to the next row) then you work in the front loops only but you double crochet in @ double crochet. Really easy pattern. Every row should only have 60 double crochet. That's including the chain 2 as a stitch. Hope this helps you.

I am doing something wrong. I ended up with a lovey, but not right, !!! " double crochet in each double crochet across." 2nd row? I ended up with about 120 stitches! on my 3rd row. What am I doing wrong
