About Me

My photo
I am 45. I am married to the love of my life. Together we have two beautiful young adults who bring me joy everyday. In 2015 we added another beautiful young adult to our house, our niece, and she has been a great joy! Secretly, I'm counting the years till grandbabies start coming; they just need to find their forever loves first.

On the back legs I do not understand the instructions. Can you explain in more details.

R1- ch3, sc in 2nd ch, 3rd in next ch, 2sc in same sp as 1st sc. (6)


Sharleen,I noticed that I have a typo in the first Row. Was that the confusion? Or is there something else? Biz

Row 1- chain 3, 2sc in 2nd ch from hook, then (typo) 3SC, not 3RD, in the next ch and end with 2sc in the same space as the original 1st sc.

Ok. It was the typo. I'm a beginner and it was confusing. Thanks!
