    I have limited hearing so need patterns written which I prefer. Even if a caption was on the video it’d
    be good. Videos are hard to see as stitches aren’ t clear. I do many blankets for charity with a group.
    I really like the extended pattern. I hope to see this improvement soon. Thank you.

    Love the look of this stitch. At 3:46 you say you are going to hdc and it looks like you did a dc. Is that correct?

    I love this! I am going to make some wash clothes 🙂 To answer the question of HOW TO FINISH the project without the gaps in the last row. *This is what I did*

    I figured to start and finish each row he has you do a hdc *half double*, so I did a hdc on next row down then an extended moss stitch in the gap (2 rows down) *repeat to the end* and finish the row with the last 2 hdc like every other row. It’s even and looks perfect 🙂

    Thank you so much for all you do, and for the left-handed tutorials (as a lefty, its refreshing to see crochet done from our point of view) however I also prefer a printed version as well so I can work on it off-line (I can read pdf’s on my tablet) — would you possibly consider putting all your amazing tutorials available in pdf format, too? Thanks again for all you do!!

    Correction: I would sc in current row instead of ch 1, and extended sc 2 rows below instead of extended dc. That will close the holes and give a sc row at the end like you have in the beginning.

    I too learn best from a written pattern. What I do is open Notebook and watch the video, stopping it every couple of stitches and typing it in Notebook. It takes a bit longer, but works great.
    For those asking about the last row to eliminate the holes; the logical thing is to do the last row in the same manner, except use sc instead of dc. Hope that helps.

    Mikey, I love your videos, especially since you include directions for left-handers (even though I’m not one). However….could you also include written directions? I can print them out and have them handy while I’m practicing and I just can’t do that with my computer. Otherwise, great site, great patterns, great techniques and great ideas.

    Love the extended moss stitch. What was the yarn used – the variegated one?

    I am like the others. How do you finish it so that it doesn’t have the holes at the end?

    Hi Mikey, I would love to see the written directions for all of your video tutorials. I prefer the written and I reflect with the video for a closer look.

    Thank you

    A friend of mine recently learned how to crochet and tells me how much she’s learned from The Crochet Crowd, so I decided to check you all out. I’ve been crocheting for over 20 years, but there is always something new to learn. You have a lot of great stuff on here, but I prefer written instructions/descriptions on how to do a stitch. For one, I personally remember better from reading rather than watching/listening to a video (though videos are helpful if I feel confused about the written instructions), and second, if I then decide to make something from one of these stitch tutorials I’m not always in a place/position to watch a video if I need a reminder on what to do whereas I could print out or download written instructions and read them. I wouldn’t be surprised if there are others that are the same as myself. I mean this as simply a suggestion, and just to write out a description of the stitch, or link to a page that has written instructions, in addition to your videos. Thanks for all you do to “hook” others into crochet!

    Same quration as above- how do you finish? What is the last row?

    I love the look of this stitch. Thank you for the tutorial I just have one question. How do you finish the last row of the scarf so it doesn’t have the holes in it? Could you replace the doubke crochets with single crochets?

      I was thinking the same thing. Maybe to finish off you chain one and then single crochet all the way across the last time? Pretty stitch.

    Love the pattern, but how do you finish the last row so you don’t have the spaces?

      I would dc in the already existing stitch (instead of the ch 1 that creates the space) and work an extended dc in the other

      on the last row, instead of a ch 1 to skip the stitch, you do a sc in the row below so you don’t wind up with spaces.
