I am excited to be part of The Crochet Crowd team. I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I am also a big geek and an internet addict. I met Mikey and Diva Dan while onboard a crochet cruise in March 2015, and the rest is history. I hope to help inspire fellow crocheters.

    Jeanne, can you help me out? I’ve started crocheting again after decades of not doing anything. This pattern is so easy yet I think I’m in trouble. The sides don’t seem to be nice and straight and I’m wondering if I’m starting and ending wrong.
    At the start of the row Mikey says chain 3, and 2 DC in the same stitch as the chain 3. I have been doing the 2 dc’s in the area between the dc’s below and not in the stitch. If this makes any sense to you. Same at the end. I don’t do the 3dc’s in a stitch of the last row chain 3 but in the hole(area) between the chain and the previous dc.

    Is this what is causing my sides to loopy? I figured because the 3 dc’s in the pattern are all made in the little holes below the chain stitch I should do all in a hole between dc’s. I have frogged and frogged and started over a dozen times, even with super bulky yarn so I could see the stitches better but I can’t find the difference. One side of my trial piece is nice straight edge, the other side looks like I increased too much and looks more roundish. *sigh* I’m frustrated, but do not want to give up. This should be so easy.
    Please help me out.
    Thanks!

      You will get an uneven end by not going directly in the bottom of the chain 3 at the beginning and not finishing up the row with 3 dc’s in the top of the chain 3 of the previous row. It’s doing it this way that will produce the straight clean edge. It sounds like you know what needs to be done. Don’t give up! 🙂

        Thank you so much, I appreciate it. I’m still not sure what is considered the bottom of chain 3. I feel enormously stupid but I want to get it right and learn. Hubby will take a photo where I point to what I think is the bottom and I will post it in the group you mentioned. I have asked to join. Thank you Jeanne.
