LESSON 4: DOUBLE CROCHET.

US short form = dc.

Please note that the turning chain here is 2 ch.
The reason is that a dc is twice as "tall" as an sc or hdc.

good afternoon class,

i made 3 rows of dc.

i also wanted to ask which chain among the 2 turning chains made will i put my needle whe i want to make my last dc.

i dont know if you understand my question.

Re: My Crochet Fantasy by Ynnk(f): 2:38pm On Oct 23, 2015
@Lumiadee.
Nice work you've got there. Well done!
Actually, you do not need to crochet into the 2ch turning chain at all.

The turning ch just provides a kind of edge wall for your work.

You should crochet under the "chain - like" tops that form on top of each row. And they should be the same number for each row (in this case 12).

So you'll see that your first "chain - like" top at the starting of the dc row is between the 2ch and your first dc.

Many thanks. And you are very much welcome.
Crocheters are really not common at all. I learnt basic crocheting from my mum when I was a kid. And then I had to teach myself a whole lot of other things.
Really? Wow! I'll love to be like u some day, I'm in love with it already. Although I av a proble with my tab, and the smaller phone I'm using isn't doing justice to the pictures u sent, so I'm finding it hard to follow

smiley. I'm so sorry that you are having some difficulty. I try to compress the pictures a bit so that they can be viewed on all devices.
I could email the pictures to you in pdf format so that you can print them out in a business center. Or if you have a pdf reader on your device, you should be able to download and read from there.

Please PM me.

Hi Lumiadee, thanks a lot for appreciating my work.
The next lesson will be up tomorrow- and it is the cap making class. I 'm just allowing some spacing between the lessons so that everyone can catch up.

Yes. Just round her head (at the widest part). So the tape will come round to just about 1 inch above the eyebrows.
Are you sure you measured 17cm? I think it should be 17 inches. The last time I measured a 2 year old, the measurement was 18 inches.
