    Do you make 2 of them& crochet together to make it thick for a ptholder?

    1. when you say in round 3, “double crochet in same stitch. Do you mean where in the slip stitch or the next stitch. 2.And then you say 2 double crochets in every chain around, Do you mean space or stitch? there is not any chains except the 2 at the begining of the round after joining with a slip stitch.

    You seem to use the word “Chain” instead of space or stitch between dc. Or is it a cluster of 2 dcs.

    I love this pattern and I want to get it right. Sorry for being so lame. I thank you for the opportunity to have this free pattern

    1. Hi,

      This design was one of my first patterns as a new crocheter many years ago. I will look over it and fix the typos, which I am sure there are plenty to be found. LOL! Have a great weekend!


  3. In reference to:

    Round 3: Chain 2, Double Crochet in Same Stitch. 2 Double Crochets in every Chain Around. Slip Stitch to top of first Double Crochet, etc.


    Thank you.
