  3. Mans,
    Thank you.

    This means you make a double crochet in the same stitch as the one you made the chain 2 in.
    (Question is, " ch 2, 1 dc in same st")

    My pattern is worked different from the one you are talking about.

  5. Thanks for your prompt response!!!

    Does it mean, we should turn around our work, after we make the 2 ch(ie, considering the 2 ch as a turning chain)?

    If no turning, am just lost then, because am not able to insert my hook in the same stich! :(

  6. Mans,
    If you are working in rounds, it is still possible to work back in the same stitch where you just chained. I would suggest you write to the author of the pattern. She will have a much better idea what you are supposed to do.

  7. Teresa - LOVE the new flower! Thanks for that!
    I would love to see more things for babies - bibs for example. I've got 2 new grand babies coming in a few months & small projects would be great - especially since I have to make 2 of everything. Thanks to you - I think both babies have enough hats to last till they are out of high school! lol!

  10. Hi Teresa: I love this flower. The grip that you stick the needle in, is it called gushie or cushie? Also, where do you get them? I searched Joann's and Lionbrand and can't find them, of course I might not have the right name. Many thanks.
