My sister is having the same problem with the slip stich so I made it like marilyngugger said in her comment I just chained three and mine throw is working out just fine! almost done just wanted to share because no one has responded yet!

I need to know this to it is strange because mine ends with 2 dc so i have to slip st past 2 dc to slip st in the first sc i'm having a problem to hope someone helps soon! thanks...

Im having the same problem

having a problem with this pattern.. not a expert crocheter .. why so you slip stitch in the 1st sc of a row. then chain 3.. could you just turn and chain three. Just seems like i am creating a lump by making the slip stitch then the chain..
