    I made the tote, but I am almost sure the directions are not correct, beginning at row 5. It says to double crochet in next double crochet, when the previous row was SC? In row 6 it ends with 40 DC yet there are not any increases in row 6? I did figured it out, adding the 8 required stitches. The tote is so sweet!!


  2. Thanks for the heads up on rnd. 5….it should read dc in sc……….on rnd 6, the increase is made on each 3rd with a dc and a fpdc in the same dc, I’ll recheck the numbers when I get home, but I think that rnd. is correct.

  3. Nancy Says:

    Thanks Carol:)…I am making another one right now with the corrected version, and I just sent the email to my friend who is also making one today.

  4. Nancy Says:

    Dear Carol…sorry to bother you again,and I did finally read the directions correctly.(my bad… as the kids would say:) I see now where you did write dc,fpdc in next dc. However…the problem is that it doesn’t add up to 40 dc at the end of the row. HELP!! What am I doing wrong? The first tote I made I just increased by 8 dc, 2 dc in the stitch before the fpdc.


  5. LOL…..my bad too…….You were so right. I have made the corrections…….where was I when I typed that up!

  6. Nancy Says:

    Thank you dear Carol!!! My best friend and I talked today..(she is from Maine), and we figured it out and also the 6 dc that we would need to skip. Hey I have many “senior moments” every day…no make that every hour! LOL! You have made many little girls very happy by sharing your talents!..Smile!!


  7. Thanks so much! So glad it finally worked out……

  8. Barbara Kayser Says:

    Hi! i just made the tote and it is so cute. In trying to make the hat, I don’t understand the very first instruction. It says chain 3, then woek 11 more dc in ring…where did the ring come from? Do you join the chain 3? That doesn’t seem right. Let me know if you have time. Thanks


  9. oops……it should read: work 11 dc in 3rd ch from hook, join to top of beginning ch 3……….

  10. Barbara Kayser Says:

    Thanks so much. They are such cute accessories for a summer outfit!


  11. You’re very welcome! It’s my pleasure!

  12. Denise Wilkins Says:

    Your creations are absolutely beautiful! I see, obviously, you do not allow for reprinting or reselling your patterns. Do you allow a finished product made from you pattern to be sold?


  13. Thank you so much for asking. Please feel free to sell your finished items. Good luck with your venture.

  14. Roberta Says:

    I don’t know what household twine is can regular 4 ply yarn be substituted for it.


  15. Hi Roberta…..4 ply would probably work out too big…….you might try size 3 crochet cotten or you could use 2 strands of size 10 crochet cotten held together. It would probably also work with infant or sports weight yarn…….household twine is string that you can get at hardware stores, it’s used for all sorts of projects and comes in a bunch of different thicknesses…….it’s almost like a skinny rope……..

  16. Bev Says:

    Hi Carol,

  17. Hi Bev:
    Thank you for your interest. The pattern corrections have been made, so you should have no problem. Feel free to contact me anytime if you have any questions.

  18. Rose Says:

  19. Thank you so much! It’s always my pleasure.
