    I got completely lost on the second row. You went at a slow enough speed in the first row but went to fast on the second. I got frustrated and wanted to cry

    I just started this and have ripped it out 5 times because at the end of row one I have a chain 5 shell and then 4 stitches left to the end. This doesn’t line up with the directions for row 2 which seem to need a chain 3 in next 3, chain 3 in 1, then Chain 3 to end the first row in order to work. I am beyond frustrated and it seems as if you get no help or response when you have an issue!

    I can’t even begin to follow this. I end up short a stitch in the first row just as you did in the video and I know I didn’t skip any stitches. I wish if you make an error in the video rather than just throw a stitch in, re-do it because this is completely confusing. Usually very pleased with your videos, but I’ll be looking for a different video for this pattern!

    Even with the tutorial I am completely confused. I wish the wagon wheel instructions were a little clearer. Very frustrated right now!

    Thank you so much for this tutorial! I bought the cranberry crisp and loved the ocean waves blanket. The first time I started it I did something funky and pulled it out. Second time I realized the rows weren’t even, pulled it all out. I admit I was on the verge of giving it up but decided to look for the tutorial. I finally got my half wagon wheels right and discovered the ends aren’t even naturally! Score! Thank you again.

    I followed the video for the first row using 154 chain to begin. I pulled it all out twice because the row would end up with only 8 shells and too many chains leftover. Then the 3rd time, I got 9 shells but no stitches left on the end. What am I doing wrong? I should end at the bottom of the hill, yes? Help! I am an experienced hooker….lol…but this foundation row is killing me.

        Lisa – that pattern has been updated on both the Michaels website in Canada as well as the US and international site. Sorry for the confusion.

    The 5 dc + ch1s…. the last [5th] dc…. is there a ch1 on the last before you skip 4 onto the 3 dcS

    tried to do this from the written pattern on michaels.com. th

    There seemed to be a problem. Step one does not tell you how to get the shell. Step two has you crocheting into the chain one space except step one never tell you how to get the chain one space. Can someone look at the pattern on the website and see if i totally missed it or is it actually missing.

    Might be me but seems like there may be a difference between video and the written instructions in Row 2. Video seems to suggest chain ones on the second row “hills” but the written does not have that. See extract below.

    “2nd row: Ch 3 (counts as dc). 1 dc in each of next 3 dc. 3 dc in next dc. 1 dc in each of next 3 dc. *Skip next 2 dc. 1 sc in next ch-1 sp. (Ch 3. 1 sc in next ch-1 sp) 3 times. Skip next 2 dc. 1 dc in each of next 3 dc. 3 dc in next dc. 1 dc in each of next 3 dc. Rep from * to last dc and turning ch. Turn.”

    Not sure which is correct (or if I am misunderstanding something?)
