    1. Hi. I know that it has been a long time since you posted, but may i ask if you completed this project? I am a newcomer and have tried this pattern as written and on video. I just dont have success because i cant fit all spikes if there is supposed to be two stitches between each spike and on the ends as well. Am i missing something? I did chain the 26 to begin and had the 24 DC to start the piece, but no way is there enough room for mine to look exactly as stated. Thanks for any help you can provide.

  3. I really like this stitch.

    Usually I do not like the long stitches.

    You have made them look nice and agreeable to my eyes.

    I have saved this page for future reference.

    Thank you so much for your stitches, patterns and videos.

    I know I appreciate them and I am sure I speaks for thousands of others.

    I do have a subscription to the youtube site, so that when a new video goes up, I can check it out.

  8. I like the look of this stitch, but mine is not working. I cannot find the room for all spikes having two stitches on the ends. Any suggestions?

  10. Are there 11 or twelve spikes. I only had room for 11. Thanks anyone who has tried chaining the 26 chains to start as suggested.

  13. I only had room for 11 spikes. Love the way it is turning out though. You have very nice videos.

    1. Bonnie - If it looks right and the edges are even, just work 11 and don't worry about the amount of spikes. There is flexibility with crochet.
