GGRRRRR!!! Pattern frustration!!
Posted 27 February 2009 - 08:41 PM
Ch 4. Turn and do 1 sc in each of next 3 ch sps. Ch 1, turn. 3 sc, ch 3. turn. 3 sc on chain, 3 hdc on the three sc. Ch1, turn. 3 sc, ch 4. Sl st in 2nd ch from hook, 3 sc in chain, 3 hdc. Ch1, turn. 4 sc, ch 5, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, 3 sc in ch, 3 hdc, ch 3 turn. *Work 4 dc decreases down the edge of wing opposite the feaher ends. Ch 3, turn, repeat from * once. Fasten off.
i have made these things at least 12 times now and they look ridiculous or end up as a knotted mess instead of wings and i frog them. AARRGGGGHHHH!!!
since i went with purple if i don't add the wings this looks dangerously close to a mini barney! barney is no cancer fighter! GAAHHH! all the other parts are made and stuffed i just need to get these wings together - i can't believe i'm having this much trouble with what will results in less than 5 inches of crochet.

if I had a clue how to read patterns I'd love to help. I just wing everything and so am still in the scarf, hat & baby blanket level

thanks shel! i stopped in to see abby yesterday, she took me up to her room and showed me his spot next to her pillow and told me that she cuddles him every night now. he's holding up pretty well after a month of 2 yo lovings
