    Hi my daughter gave me a kit from Wool and the Gang for Christmas…a crocheted market bag. I don’t crochet well at all and this is an intermediate project. I am trying but have a question. I work around the foundation chain to create the bottom of the bag. Do I count the 3 chain stitches as I go around each corner as well as the join stitch at the beginning of each new round when I’m counting the total stitches required at the end of each round? There are 2 increases per round that are made by dc into the very last stitch. So start with 47 sts on the foundation chain then work 46 sts plus 2 dc in last st, turn the work 180 degrees, work 46 sts on the 2nd long edge of foundation chain, then work 2 dc into last st and join. I should have 96 sts. Next I make 3 chain sts and work 47 sts and so forth around ending with 98 sts. It goes on like this for the base. Thanks for any help, the instructions with this kit are for someone who knows what to do and I am struggling.

      Hi there, it sounds like you are on the right track. If the pattern states “CH 3 counts as a DC” then you will count the chains as an actual stitch. 🙂

    Hi! I purchased your bag kit from Craftsy and I’m so excited, but the one thing I don’t understand is when making the holes for the straps, it says ch 1 and then skip the next stitch. Ch 1 doesn’t seem to be on your abbreviations list so could you please explain? Thanks so much! You’re a wonderful artist

    Hi Deja,
    I just wanted to thank you for your HDC straight seam in the round tutorial, I have been crocheting for 50+ years but have only recently been doing a lot of bonnets and beanies. Thanks for “solving” my diagonal seam issues 😊

    Hi Deja,

    Thank you so much for your videos. I have learned a lot just by following your patterned tutorials from the YouTube days. Now I am going through and practicing all the different stitches to make sure I have a strong foundation. I noticed you do not have a right-handed set of videos for DC; did you just forget to upload them? Following SC and HDC, I noticed the techniques for things like FPSC, ESC, and changing color seem the same. For DC, I assume use the same techniques as in the SC and HDC videos except chain 3 for row/round height instead of 1 and 2. Is that correct?
