Assembly

Insert the Stalk & Spandix in the Spathe’s opening. About ¾ inch of the stalk should be visible inside the spathe. Stitch the sides of the opening to the stalk. Shape the spathe. The flower could be stiffened at this stage, to give it a permanent shape.

    What does 2sts-sc dec, 7sc, (1sc, 1hdc, 1dc, 1tr) = 12sts, 1ch, mean i understand i will have 12sts and 1ch left but I dont understand what 2ts – sc dec mean or how i am supposed to go about crocheting that

  3. Tammy says:

    Do you have a video of doing this- some of the rows don’t have enough stitches to do all the stitches of the next row. I do understand the stitches in () are to be made in the same stitch place. how do you do a 2sts-(1dc, 1tr) dec like row 19 & 20. I know how to do dec, but not using 2 stitches in the same dec- never seen it, or heard of it before. I think I need to see what is going on, which is unusual for me-some places have less stitches to work into than what the row calls for. Help please. Thank you.

  4. Myrian Primera says:

    I am in love with your flowers. They are beautiful. Thank you for sharing your pattern. Although I am having the same trouble as the others. I don’t end up with the same amount of stitches to end the row. I understand how to decrease but my end product is not looking like yours. It come out lop-sided on one side. Any help would be appreciated.
