I cannot figure out what as. ss means in round 4? it would really help if there was an abbreviation chart .

Hi there, For specific pattern questions, you can contact Bernat via their profile on FaveCrafts. I also suggest posting your question on our Facebook wall - perhaps others have had the same problem. Thanks!

Hi there I think they mean slip stich with ss. greatings Ria

It means do the stitch in the same chain 1 space as the slip stitch. So you're going to have a slip stitch, a chain 3 and 2 double crochets all in the chain 1 space.

are there any abbreviations for the crochet doily pattern?

having trouble in round 4.

ok i figured it out had to adjust number of stitches to skip to get it right from the picture... on round 7 now...

is there a video on how to make this doilie anywhere? i cant seem to follow the written pattern...

is there a video for this pattern? I can do patterns better if following a video of the person makng it.

I have tried to make this doily but can't for the life of me work out how to do the last part of round 9 which says ch3 .1 tr in last ch 2 sp. It just does not look any where near right. Any one able to help please as I would really like to finish it

I have tried to make this about 4times and just can't work out how to do the last bit in round 9 where you have to ch3.tr in last ch 2 space It just does look right at all. Has any one got any ideas as to how this is supposed to be done . It would be much appreciated. Clara

Row 9: only do the chain 3 and not the tr Row 10: after the chain 3. 1 tr in the top of chain 3 from row 9 (since you didn't do the tr in row 9) The rest of the tr stitches are correct I hope that helps

Please explain in detail how to do the last step of #9 - how do I get from 1 sc in ch-2 sp to Ch 3. 1tr in last ch-2 sp. (I know how to do a tr) And therefore how to do the last step in #10 -14 also

In the 8th round you have 1 tr in last Ch-2 sp. What does tr mean?

i don't know. i am still a beginner, and don't understand what they are saying

tr means triple or treble crochet. For instructions on how to do that, you may consult YouTube for easier learning ;)

Pretty Crochet Doily pattern. There is a mistake in the instructions. On number 3 of the instructions, 2nd round, the instructions say, "Ch 4 (counts as 1 dc and ch-1). Miss next dc. (1 dc in next dc. Ch 1) 15 times. Ch 1. Sl st in 3rd ch of ch-4" Where it says "Miss next dc." that is incorrect according to the picture and how the count is coming out. You SHOULD NOT "Miss next dc. You should dc in ea. dc and ch 1, in order for it to come out correctly. I have tried it over and over again the way it's written and there is no way that is correct. So DO NOT MISS NEXT DC. Dc in each dc and ch 1, 15 times. If I am incorrect and there is a way to do it as it is written and get 15 times around then PLEASE tell me how to do that. Thank you so very much.

I agree with you.

would be nice if you make the pattern as big as 15-16 inches and post the pattern , because i really like it and i want to make it bigger but i think am messing it up.

Pretty Crochet Doily, how can I add to it to make it bigger. Please advice since am not an expert on crocheting.

In the second round it says to chain 4 then skip the next dc and continue. It looks more uniform if you chain 4 and continue in the next dc then skip the very last dc when you slip to the 3rd chain of that 4ch.

In the 1st rnd you say to Ss in top of ch3, then do 16 dc. What is Ss?

ss means to slipstitch

how do you slip stitch? it is basically a single chain?
