Hi everyone!
I have just finished knitting the snowdrift wrap at I have to crochet the edges and am having a problem understanding what I need to do with the stitches. It states that in Rnd. 1 in the first stitch of bind off I should insert my crochet needle and pull up a loop,(this I can do), ch3 (counts as dc),*dc in each stitch across bind off edge, ch 5, (dc in next 3 rows, sk 1 row)along length of wrap, ch 5, rep from*, sl st in top ch of ch3.
Rnd. 2 Ch 4 (counts as dc + ch 1), * sk next dc, (dc in next dc, ch 1), rep from * around working corners as dc, ch 1, dc, ch1, dc, ch3 dc, ch1, dc. end with sl st in 34d ch of starting ch 4.
HUH? What does all of this mean?
I am way out of my category for crocheting this. As I understand it In rnd 1 I should chain 3 stitches on the initial loop. Then do a dc in the next stitch. Question is do I make a chain of 3 before each dc or is this just the first time.
Next question is more or less a repeat of the first do I chain 5 stitches but here I become completely lost. What does it mean dc in next 3 rows? sk 1 row? HELP!!!

Dear DCGrams,

I just found your note this afternoon. I looked at the pattern - that shawl is gorgeous, congratulations. The directions for row 1 of the crocheted edging are almost incomprehensible. Row 2 is fine. If you haven't solved it or found help, write me, I think we can adjust row 1 and I can help you with row 2. Anyway, let me know how you are doing. Thanks for re-connecting me with Elann and their free patterns. Warmly, Chayah
