I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.

    Hi Angela – look at the corresponding photos maybe these will help.
    The first 3 DC that you SKIP are the CORNER 2 DC and 1 DC of the previous round – maybe it’s this part that is confusing you. Each round is increased with 2 DC in each rounds – RND 5 – 5 DC before CH; RND 6 – 7 DC before CH and RND 7 – 9 DC before CH.
    Hope this helps.

  2. This pattern makes no sense when you get to round 7 – in 6 you DC into 7 stitches but in 7 your supposed to skip 3 work 3dc in next skip 2 work DC into 3 that’s that’s 9 stitches and that’s before the chain of 6 where did these stitches come from

  3. These patterns are really cool!
