I, too, was very confused with the instructions. I did some research online and found 3 different websites that show how to do the double knot stitch. I think the single knot stitch is included on a couple of them. http://www.nexstitch.com/v_double_solomons_knot.html http://www.crochetspot.com/how-to-crochet-knot-stitch/ http://www.chezcrochet.com/page35.html Under the Abbreviations for this project, it says HDC is also the double knot stitch. I think that is wrong. HDC is a completely different stitch. I would ignore that and learn how to do the double knot stitch.

I cannot understoand the instructions after row 2. They are not precise and do not make sense to me. I have been crocheting for 60 years but this one has me stumped.

I have to agree with the other posters - instructions are not clear. Too bad, cause it's cute...but is anyone else concerned about having a sharpened dowel attached to their body while walking around?

this is beautiful but the instructions are not good. Not clear and confusing. I also tried to find this stitch on line for some clearer instructions and there is nothing. Quite dissppointed
