I began a small SW ripple last night and it looks like it's working out well but something is puzzling me and I don't want to go any further till I make sure I'm doing this correctly. Naturally, I knew just where to pop in for help. :)
I cast on 63 chains (multiple of 12 plus 3). However, when I come to the end of the row (each row is the same at the end), it says: 'ending last rep with 2 dc into 3rd of ch 3, turn. I've been doing the row from the * to * but I end up doing 'dc into each of next 3 dc, [dc2tog] twice, 1 dc into each of next 3 dc , but at this point at the end I only have room for the last 2 dc into 3rd ch of ch 3.
So, what happens to the [2 dc into next dc twice] because I have no room for that so I go from 1 dc into the next 3 dc right into 'ending with' and have to skip the above bracketed instructions. I hope this is clear and not too muddied up to understand.
The blanket looks good but I can't help thinking that I shouldn't be skipping the last part of the directions in row 3.....can you help?
