  • Were you supposed to be doing something in only one loop prior. I would just ch 2 and then dc in the same st and see if it looks all right, if not rip and try again. Sorry I would need to see the pattern and the result to really tell you.
    Some of those patterns really are written in greek.

  • If you look at your crochet from the top, you will see there are actually 2 loops you usually go thru to make a stitch. The back stitch is the one farthest away from you. Maybe this link will help you see what I'm talking about. Good Luck!

  • Simple. After you chain 2, you will put your hook through both loops of the previous row. Some patterns will tell you to double crochet (or whatever stitch) in the front loop or back loop. You will do your DC in both loops.

    Here is a link with some pictures. I hope they help.

    If you can't figure it out if you have a craft store like AC Moore or Ben Franklin or Michael's, you can bring your crocheting in to them and they will have some people who work there who will be able to answer your questions and by showing you. You wont' have to take a class either.

    Good luck.
